Nodding bluebell, endemic species, cannot for the life of me remember or find species name but pointed out by lecturer as unique to region.

Locally recorded bluebells (according to ALA) are W.gracilis, W.cercea, W.capillaris & W.stricta. It could be a couple of those given a single image, but none are usually nodding or locally endemic.... W.rupicola and W.telfordii are restricted to small populations around Barrington/Ebor and the latter exclusively Ebor in NENP. Could be that I suppose? But I'm thinking genus as we don't have much to go off
