Hodsock Priory - Sunday 2nd February

Post  Admin on Tue Nov 12, 2013 5:52 am

2nd February - Hodsock Priory
Hodsock Priory is famous for its 5 acre gardens which are opened in February every year to show off it's world famous snowdrop display. Our 8 mile walk starts and ends at Hodsock, taking in Langold Country Park and Wallingwells Country House along the way. No hills on this walk, but expect plenty of mud! A slightly earlier start than normal too to allow anyone who wants to, to view the gardens.

Details:-
Meet at Hodsock Priory, Blyth, Worksop, S81 0TY at 9.30 for 9.45 start. There is free parking at the Priory.

Thank you Roger. Does that mean we will be there early enough to see the gardens?

I may be wrong but I think the early start is so we can look round when we finish. I'm sure Steve will let us know. studs studs

We didn't actually do this walk last year, it must have been the year before! Time flies!

New walker Anna joining us tomorrow.

Just a word about parking. The priory has free parking in a designated field this time of year for people visiting the snowdrops and that's where we can park. However, they get a bit shirty about people taking up places that are close to the priory, and then leaving their cars all day to go on a walk. The last time we were there they got us to move our cars out of the way once they realised what we were doing.
So it might be a good idea tomorrow for everybody to park at the far right of the parking field as you come onto it, i.e. as far away from the priory as possible. Hope this makes sense  Shocked

Please add me to the list. Mags has contacted me to give her a lift since her posting so that may give you extra room in your car.http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png

Wow ,How lucky have we been with the weather today. I think we should have taken our sunglasses. The mud was ever present though, but thankfully nobody fell in it, mores the pity  Shocked 

What a lovely crowd of people we had walking again today. Really pleased that John joined us for the second time, lets hope he makes it again.

Lovely walk again in the winter sunshine! Pity I didn't see any snowdrops but it didn't matter. My legs feel like they had a good workout trying to stay upright in all that mud! Another good turnout today too.  Very Happy
