Towards the top of the Ashwick Grove valley is a Folly set just above the track to Ashwick Grove House. It would have formed a Garden feature to welcome and impress visitors to the main house.
Over 4 weeks behind their neighbours at Stone Bridge, the Snowdrops at Keeper’s Cottage are finally coming into flower.
Finally the Snowdrops at Keeper’s Cottage are coming into full flower

The Snowdrops opposite the Stone Bridge are now in full flower.
Some of the flower petals are being nibbled, perhaps by Mice, so now not sure how long they will last
