Snowdrops spring into season

As December ends and January is just around the corner, we're keeping an eye out for the first of the snowdrops. Usually, beginning to make an appearance from mid January onwards (dependent upon weather conditions) these delicate green and white flowers transform the floor of the woodland in February.

Wrap up warm as the new year arrives and take a refreshing stroll around Attingham to spot the snowdrops. 

Snowdrops are traditionally seen as a symbol of hope at the end of the winter.

From mid-January onwards they'll be springing up in clusters around the grounds and we expect them to be at their best mid-February this year. Wild snowdrops tend to flourish in damp woods, and this is the best place to find them at Attingham. The best spots to see them are around the Mile Walk, on foot, and at the front of the park, by car, as you drive past the main gates you'll see them as you enter the drive that leads to the car park.

To find the best spots in the grounds, you can pick up a snowdrop leaflet from Visitor Reception available in February.
