The Saffron Walden Wild Flower Group is a long established informal group of enthusiasts who arrange a programme of different monthly field walks from April to September, twice in each of the months of June and July, taking not more than two hours each. We enjoy exchanging views on the identification of the many species we find (rarities in particular!) which not only adds to our knowledge but the lists we make provide a detailed record of continuity, or change, and are welcomed by the Uttlesford District Council Saffron Walden Museum to add to its archive of our local environment.

Visits for the 2018 season are;
April 24th – 6 pm – Hales Wood, Ashdon Road – TL570405
May 15th – 6.30 pm – Hildersham Bridleway – TL549493
