A Walk in Blake's Wood.
Walk taken on Tuesday, 21st April and updated on Tuesday, 28th April 2020.
Those who live in Danbury and Little Baddow can, at this time of the year, walk to Blake's Wood, Riffams Lane in Little Baddow to enjoy the Bluebells.
It should be pointed out that there are only a few seats so a Shooting Stick is something to be considered as well as a walking stick or German style walking sticks because many of the paths are covered in tree roots.
After the lovely 12mm (1/2") or so of rain on Tuesday, 28th April 2020 all of the paths in Blakes Wood may be slippery - please take care. The rain will, however fill out the bluebells more.

The Bluebells on one side of Blake's Wood follow the old Green Lane.

Another view of a carpet of Bluebells which were very good this year.
A close up view - they are taller this year but still have a few weeks to go to maximum fullness.
Another view - they can be seen in the distance.
Both sides of the path.
While walking under the trees, stop a while and look up.
It the Ash comes out before the Oak - we will have a Soak,
If the Oak comes out before the Ash - we will have a Splash.
This indicates Essex is in for another dry Summer!
