from Hell Brake Paddock

If you enjoy a walk through lovely countryside the parishioners of Whatcote, near Shipston-on-Stour, are holding their Annual Bluebell Walk on Sunday May 6th. Started in 1990, the walk has become an annual event enjoyed by visitors from far and wide. The walk is about 2 miles long through farmland to Hell Brake and Oak Tree Coppice, where bluebells carpet the ground under the trees and has wonderful views across the Vale of the Red Horse from Oak Tree Coppice. Tea & homemade scones will be waiting for you when return to St Peters churchyard. It is a very enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Dogs are welcome if kept on a lead. Strong shoes or boots are essential. The walk will start from Church Lane, Whatcote (postcode CV36 5EF), and will be well signposted in the village, as will free car parking. You can begin your walk any time between 2pm and 5pm. The cost is £6.00 for adults, accompanied children free, and this includes the tea & scones! There will also be plant & produce stalls with the proceeds going to St Peters Church repairs. Contact Sue Price for more details, Telephone 01295 680007 or e-mail: susan.price@ukgateway.net
