oxlip, a species of our local ancient woodlands

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, taking no more than about an hour and a half 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 these records are welcomed by the Saffron Walden Museum to add to its archive of our local environment.

The Saffron Walden Wildflower Group proposes to visit the following places in 2024;

April 24th – Garnetts Wood, Barnston
May 22nd – Hadstock, location to be confirmed
June 12th – Springwell, a footpath
June 26th – Great Dunmow, roundabout near Tesco
July 10th Birchanger Wood, Bishops Stortford
July 24th – Littlebury roadside verges
August 14th Chickney Church
September 11th – Tilty Abbey

We would very much welcome new members – anyone interested should please telephone Gertrud –  Phone:  07826 844 853;
