Middleton Bluebell Woods

A bluebell wood is a forest that in spring-time has a carpet of bluebells underneath a newly forming leaf canopy. The thicker the summer canopy, the more competitive ground-cover is suppressed, encouraging a dense carpet of bluebells, whose leaves mature and die down by early summer. As such there is but a brief window of opportunity every year to see the flowers flourish...it's a great experience to see their transient beauty before they vanish in the heat of summer.
