Snowdrop walk at Rode Hall

by Wendy Syddall

Some weeks ago my friend and I planned a trip for today to Rode Hall to see the snowdrops. We attempted it last year but the weather was poor and we didn’t make it. So today, it was forecast to be bad again but we thought we’d chance it. It was closed yesterday but when I checked if open today I got no response.

This place is actually featured on Country Life’s top 10 places to see snowdrops and when you visit you can see why, it’s very pretty. As I’ve been before I didn’t take many pictures but sometimes I just can’t resist as I want to look at the pretty.

It’s near Congleton in Cheshire and less than an hours drive for me. It’s open til 3rd March if you are interested. The website is
