So where can we find these wildflowers in Frodsham? Well, Castle Park is a good place to start. Near to the play area is a relatively wild area, chock full of lesser celandine, bluebells and wild garlic. Opposite-leaved golden saxifrage appears near the stream. These wildflowers provide a lovely contrast to the cultivated blooms elsewhere in the park.
For a walk where you’re unlikely to see anyone else, try Marl Pit. This deep, tree-lined depression has an impressive display of bluebells; a delight to see. Red campion appears, here, too.
Snidley Moor has its own marked bluebell walk! Here, as the name suggests, the path wanders through carpets of these cerulean blooms, beneath the oak and birch tree canopy above. Other places to see some bluebells include Manley Road and Wheeldon Copses.
Of course, the crowning glory for Frodsham’s wildflowers is Hob Hey Wood. All of the flowers mentioned above thrive here; there are tens of thousands of bluebells and great rafts of wild garlic giving a delight to the senses for a spring walk. Other flowers grown here, too numerous to mention here.
