Bluebell Walk

About this event

Meeting at the gates to Burleigh Wood (What3Words - faces.rock.edge), following a short introduction, the group will take a gentle stroll around the wood, stopping to learn about the plants and ecology of the wood (including the locally famous bluebell display). The walk will be led by Rich Fenn Griffin, Assistant Gardens Manager.

If you need to leave the event early due to work commitments, please feel free to do so.

Please be aware that the surface of the wood is uneven in parts, so sturdy footwear is recommended. If high winds or heavy rain are predicted for the day of the event, you will receive an email if the event has to be cancelled.

Dogs are welcome.
