This week I stayed local and went for a short walk at Fairy Glen, near Appley Bridge, Lancashire.
Fairy Glen is one of the most picturesque woodlands in the area especially at this time of the year. It is designated as a Biological heritage Site for its ancient woodland of oak, birch, ash and alder. The floor was carpeted with bluebells, wild garlic, red campion. and marsh marigold. The waters of Sprodley Brook have over time, cut down through the underlying sandstone to create the steep Fairy Glen valley, which has spectacular waterfalls and cliff faces.
My aim today was to photograph some of the wild flowers.
