Kennet Valley TR Group mid monthly for February 2020 is another visit to Welford Park, it is renowned for beautiful displays of snowdrops.
Snowdrops are nearly always found in abbey ruins and graveyards, and were planted by Norman monks as a symbol of purity and the cleansing of the earth after winter. Some of the greatest snowdrop displays in England were all originally monastic sites ie Walsingham Abbey, Hodsock Priory, Anglesey Abbey and Welford Park.
The entrance fee is for £8 adults, £6 for concessions including OAP, £4 for children and children under 4 free. Admission from 10:30, park gates open at 11:00 then there is a pub lunch at 13:00 at the Five Bells, Wickham. We have a super deal of a 3 course lunch for £24.00 per person, see the menu below:
If the weather is poor it’s no problem to bring your everyday car along, or if you would like just to come along and have a nice lunch with fellow members, that’s fine too!
