Friday 15th February. Meet at Staunton Harold Garden Centre lower car park for either visit the snow drops or just go for a walk.
10 walkers met at Staunton Harold for the February short walk. The weather was glorious and so we set off along the road to Lount taking the track when the road turned left. The track was muddy frozen to start with but soon turned to real mud and puddles. T the Lount gates there was a lot of snowdrops not on the scale of Dimminsdale but more than enough to satisfy the walkers. We returned to the house via the road again going straight on at the gate where the road turned left. We crossed the field to main gate where we stopped for a quick photo in the sunshine before going to the cafe in stable yard.
