A walk with the Wye Valley NL Team exploring the maze of traditional tiny fields, lanes and woodland tracks around Brockweir and The Hudnalls

This walk with the Wye Valley NL Team explores the maze of traditional tiny fields, lanes and woodland tracks around Brockweir and The Hudnalls, uncovering the fascinating story of The Flower Patch. Flora Klickman (editor of The Girl’s Own Paper and Woman’s Magazine) lived here 1928 to1958 and wrote a series of books inspired by her ‘flower patch’. She kept a diary of natural history observations, recording the plants in bloom in her fields in the 1920s and 30s. We will be on the lookout for some of these flowers on our walk. Arriving in St Briavels we bring the flower theme up to date with a visit to Wye Valley Flowers, set up in 2019 by Jo and Lucy to grow seasonal flowers, with no air miles or nasty chemicals. Tea and cake are included but you might want to bring a picnic lunch. Led by staff from the Wye Valley National Landscape.

7.5 miles
