 Record Description Deepdale Lower Scar is the limestone cliff on the eastern side of Deepdale, at the junction between Deepdale and Whitcliffe Scar. This Scar supports a fine population of yews, together with ash, hazel, rowan, blackthorn, hawthorn and ivy. The yews in particular are of interest in that they are predominately female, at one count of 22 yews no less than 19 were female, one male and two inaccessible. This prompts the question whether these trees are clones. A very healthy population of yews of different age with several young yews, often showing signs of having been heavy grazed. Wych elm are notably absent from this cliff.
