bluebells2bluebells31bluebells1The National Trust is organising bluebell walks at Croft Castle and parkland in the north of the county. This is the time of year to see the unmistakeably English sight of a woodland scene carpeted with the delicately nodding heads of the English bluebell rather than its more showy Spanish cousin. As they are associated with ancient woodland areas, it is likely that any bluebell woods date back to at least 1600 and as we have excellent conditions for bluebells here, it is thought that the UK has between a quarter and a half of all the world’s bluebells.
