Excellent find! From the location of the specimen and the grey colour of the rock, I assume that's limestone? If so, that would confirm Max Gray's comment to me back in the 1970s that A. trichomanes almost always grows on or near limestone. I found it growing all over the place at the Cotter Cave in the late 1970s.

Thank you :). Yes, this little fern is growing out of the London Bridge arch, which is limestone
