Summary

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019   Bluebell walk

Almost certainly this walk will visit the area around Holwell Lawn, Hound Tor and Emsworthy where carpets of bluebells appear at this time of year and cuckoos are very often heard calling.  At this point, it's not certain which bluebells will be out in mid-May (it depends a lot on temperature and it's a while away yet) but we will be sure to see some.  The actual route will be specified nearer the time...  Here's some views from previous years to whet your appetite.

Meet 9.30 am at Peartree Cross (Shell garage on western edge of Ashburton).  We will carshare from there to walk start point and back.  Return by 1.30 pm.  Cost of walk: £6.  Please email or text if you wish to come.
