Not having visited our favourite bluebell wood for a few years now, I took the opportunity yesterday when our daughter was with us, to share with her somewhere that is very special to us. Just half an hours drive away is Blackbury Camp, an Iron age Settlement dating back to 400BC.
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
I think the bluebells are early this year as this time the beech trees were mostly still bare. Usually their new acid green leaves contrast so well with the intense blue of all the flowers, but it was still wonderful to see thousands or even millions of stunning bluebells in such an historic setting. Places like this need protecting as they are so special, fortunately British Heritage is looking after this site so it should be safe for years to come, maybe for another 2500 yrs!
