Snowdrop walks at Walsingham Abbey and Brinton Hall

There are perfect conditions in Walsingham for snowdrops to thrive: deciduous woodland with chalky, alkaline, humus-rich soil with good drainage, but which never dries out in summer.

The open tree canopy lets through plenty of light in late winter and early spring.

Carpets of snowdrops mingled with aconites have naturalised throughout 18 acres of woodland, and along the banks of the River Stiffkey which runs through the Abbey Grounds.
