In 1799, Sheffield botanist, Jonathan Salt, collected this specimen of Lady's Mantle from Fulwood. Today, this species is predominantly found in the North and West of Britain. In fact Sheffield is about as far South and East as it can be found. Knowing that plants such as this could be found in Sheffield 200 years ago is very important for tracking the effects of climate change.
