Local Bluebell walks

April 21, 2016

I can pretty much say that I love this time of year, flowers are starting to bloom, the bright red leaves are appearing on our maple tree AND there are bluebells everywhere.

Most woodlands are carpeted with bluebells at the moment, you never have to travel far to see them, but we are really lucky that our local woods at Caterham viewpoint are completely smothered in them. It's a great spot to walk or cycle or picnic. It is on Gravelly Hill just off of Tupwood Scrubs in Caterham, Surrey.

 

We headed down the route towards Harestone Valley Road, and forked off down a hill, there were lots of wild flowers about, the ones I picked are Euphorbia (the green/yellow ones) and bugleweed (the purple ones).

We followed the path back up to the viewpint, under a canopy of Elm trees, passing lots of nordic walkers, and ended up back at the top of view point. It's a lovely walk and a feast for the eyes at the moment.

 

 

 

Happy Valley is also a great local spot to see bluebells if you venture down the hills into the woods at the top. Parking is best behind the Fox Pub off of the Coulsdon Road, on the Caterham/Old Coulsdon border. 

Enjoy exploring.....
