The Sussex Cancer Fund is delighted to be hosting the Arlington Bluebell Walk at Bates Green Farm on Thursday 4th May. We will be your hosts as you enjoy everything that Bates Green Farm has to offer with the Arlington Bluebell Walk.
About Arlington Bluebell Walk
Every spring, Beatons Wood, our ancient oakwood, appears as:
1. A fresh green carpet of emerging bluebell leaves
2. A white display of wood anemones
3. A unique view of green, white and blue as the English bluebells emerge
4. Followed by the many vistas of blue when the bluebells are fully out
5. The wood darkens as the leaves on the trees unfurl and bluebells fade leaving calm and tranquility
The timing of this sequence is dictated by the soil temperature.
