Conserving the Devonshire Avon from source to sea

‘BLUEBELL’ PICNIC

by | May 12, 2010 | Main | 0 comments

Once again our luck held and, on 12th May, 18 hardy souls were able to enjoy a sunny spell, a stroll, a sandwich and each other’s company in Stiddicombe Wood, admiring the bench the ACA purchased as a memorial to past chairman, John Crawford.   Some even brought their own seats!  

Although the timing was just about right for bluebell flowering, the ramsons (wild garlic) were more spectacular, providing a heady aroma on entering the wood from the creek end – the flowers also tasted fantastic in our sandwiches! 

Stiddicombe Wood is a much under-used jewel on the Avon Estuary Walk although it is relatively easy to reach on a well-marked trail across farmland from either Bridge End, at Aveton Gifford, or from Bantham.
