Clapgate Pits is a disused quarry near Broughton, Lincolnshire. This 1.0 ha (2.5 acres) site has been managed by Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust since 1996. It provides an environment for several plants which are rare in Lincolnshire: pale St John's-Wort, Squinancywort and Wall Germander. Until 1969 it was the most northerly site in Britain for Pasqueflower but these plants were apparently dug up by vandals.
