With over half the global population of bluebells flowering on UK shores and the bluebell season now in full swing, Your County has rounded up some of the best walks in East Sussex.
Arlington Bluebell Walk and Farm Trail
Based in Arlington, there are now seven different bluebell walks over three working farms.
Along the walks there are signs explaining the flora and fauna. And the Beatons Wood walk has been made suitable for wheelchair users.
There are also pens of sheep, pigs and angora goats to see. Tickets start from £2 and the walks are open from 9 April to 10 May. Visit Arlington Bluebell Walk for more details.
Sheffield Park and Garden in Uckfield
Join a guided bluebell walk on 29 April or 6 May and see carpets of bluebells in the garden and around lesser known parts of the estate.
Tickets start from £2.50 per child. Visit Sheffield Park for details.
Close to Hastings lies a deep wooded valley, full of beautiful bluebells. At the bottom of the valley runs a stream, babbling over sandstone. Expect to see Hornbeam coppice, wood anemone, primrose, bluebell, wild garlic, mosses, ferns, orchids, adder’s-tongue fern, wasp spiders, nightingale and various warblers. Visit Marline Valley for more details.
Woodpeckers, heather, rowan and bluebells can be spotted at Selwyns Wood which is one mile south of Cross-in-Hand, near Heathfield.
