Bluebells and Orchids - Heart of Kent Walking Festival

About

This is an exceptional site for spring flowers notably bluebells, wood sorrel and wood spurge at this Woodland Trust site. Most notably we will walk through the adjacent Admirals’ wood, where, if conditions are right, early purple orchids are so abundant they will provide a remarkable carpet of imperial purple unmatched anywhere in Kent to my knowledge.

Bumblebees and butterflies will be active and taking advantage of the fragrant and nectar rich emblems of spring in this classic English woodland. An expert guide will point identify the plants and animals as we encounter them on this woodland stroll.

A moderate walk 90% on good paths through woodland and grasslands.
