Shipley Hill - Galanthus Time
w/e 23 February 2020
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

I could have included this page in the Miscellaneous Walks section as all the images come from a longer walk in Shipley Country Park but in truth, they were all taken on a loop around Shipley Hill from Derby Lodge via Shipley Lane, the wood at the top of the hill, the site of the former Hall and the old Coach Road. The length of this route was only a little over half a mile but that was sufficient to see millions of the plant with the botanical name Galanthus or to you and me - snowdrops! So rather than go into great detail about the route, I've just captioned each image with a brief note about its location.
