THE SPECTACULAR Wootton Wawen Bluebell Walk is back this Bank Holiday weekend.

The annual event was held for the first time last year after a two year break following the death of organiser John Haimes.

For the last 25 years farmer Mr Haimes and his son had Simon raised thousands of pounds for a variety of charities by opening up Austy Woods to the public for people to enjoy the stunning sea of bluebells.

The walk did not take place between for a couple of years, but after the success of last spring’s event, the family are preparing to open up the woods again and will be raising money for The Stratford Hospital Appeal.

The bluebell walk is not guided and people can turn up anytime between 10am and 4pm and folllow a trail – roughly one and a half miles long – through the woods which offer one of the largest areas of bluebells in Warwickshire.

A hog roast and refreshments will be available throughout the day back at Yew Tree Farm Craft Centre where there is also a variety of shops and boutiques to browse around.

The bluebell walk is weather dependent but is set to take place on Sunday and Monday (May 3 and 4).

Entry is priced at £5 for adults while children and dogs on a lead go free.

Yew Tree Farm can be found just off the Stratford Road in Wootton Wawen between Henley and Stratford.
