Annual Bluebell Walk at Whatcote If you enjoy a walk through lovely countryside, the parishioners of Whatcote, near Shipston-on-Stour, are holding their Annual Bluebell Walk on Bank Holiday Monday, May 27th. Started in 1990 the walk has become an annual event enjoyed by visitors from far and wide. The walk is between 1½ and 2 miles long through farmland to Hell Brake and Oak Tree Coppice, where bluebells carpet the ground under the trees. With wonderful views across the Vale of the Red Horse from Oak Tree Coppice, and tea & homemade scones when you return to St Peter’s churchyard, it is a very enjoyable way to spend a Bank Holiday afternoon. Dogs 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! Cake & produce stalls.
