Wenlock's wild flowers

The Wenlock woods and meadows are filled with beautiful wild flowers, look out for wood sorrel, barren strawberry, ground ivy and many more!

Wood anenomes are doing really well especially down in Northway wood.

There are some lovely specimens of Lesser Celandine at Knowle quarry, Presthope and at Wilderhope, near the stream.

Wilderhope is a great place to see cowslips and primroses.

Violets are springing up everywhere, a good place to spot them is on the path above Lea quarry.

Early purple orchids have been spotted flowering in Longville coppice (look for their spotty leaves) and bluebells are starting to come out too.

Show us your wild flower photos by posting on our Facebook page:
