Our trail started by the Village Church & led up to the Beckford Nature Reserve to circuit around it, then worked it’s way up to a farm. Once past this, we followed the path around the outskirts of fields & in to the woods, before dropping back down & ending where we began.

Common Bluebells carpeted the woodland floor & thus, it all looked beautiful. Splashes of bright colour were everywhere we turned & each flower was trying to catch the sunlight seeping through the trees.
