Yellow walk – Speke Hall, Liverpool

A close up picture of vivid yellow leaves in autumn

Yellow is a colour that really lifts confidence and encourages our optimism.

'There's yellow in virtually everything around Speke Hall in autumn,' says our lead ranger, Ian Ford. 'The trees will have yellow leaves in the Clough, our ancient woodland of beech and oak.

'All the shrubs and berries seem to go through yellow in the autumn. Rosehips go yellow through to red and the haws get a rush of yellow colour, as do the crab apples.

'If you're here on a nice autumn day you get the light coming through at low level it shines through the leaves and just heightens the yellow colour, it really makes it glow.’
