Woollen Woods in Bloom

The mature trees surrounding one of Lancashire's finest Tudor buildings is hosting an enchanting outdoor art installation. Crafters everywhere were invited to crochet 'Mr Hesketh's primrose' - Primula veris Heskethi - a lost hybrid of the primrose and cowslip discovered by 16th century botanist Thomas Hesketh.
