Snowdrops at Lytham Hall – in Lancashire, England

I recently attended an event at Lytham Hall in Lancashire and enjoyed walking through the wooded grounds to admire the gorgeous snowdrops there. One of the pleasures of springtime in England are the seasonal spring flowers that mark the change from winter into spring and the first of these are the snowdrops.

These miniature white bells are temperamental creatures and love their woodland habitat – they won’t grow just anywhere for anyone, and they are most easily established in your garden if you plant them ‘in the green’ with the moist earth still around the roots. Lytham Hall was built for the Clifton family in the 1760s and the main house contains some fine portraits and interiors, although it’s only open to the public on certain Sundays and holidays throughout the year or to groups by prior arrangement.

The grounds of Lytham Hall are also open to the public on certain days and there are a number of events including guided walks around the grounds, so do check the website for details if you’re visiting the area.

If you’d like to visit the pleasant coastal town of Lytham, the place I’ve heard recommended as the place to stay, although I’ve not been there myself is The Rooms Boutique B & B.

    Oh too funny, Heather. When I read the title I thought it said snowflakes. Then I read the beginning of your article and realized you were talking about spring flowers, but when I got to the photo the flowers looks just like snow blanketing the ground. Pretty!

    Lytham Hall is beautiful at this time of year, so it’s great to read about your visit there, however it is currently facing a funding crisis and there is a campaign to raise money for it.

    funding crisis i went to salmsbury hall they sell antiques and use the money to keep the building up to date suggestion carboot sales. In the cafe part that courtyard is lovely it would make a lovely 15th century pub or even have a flower show like southport or plant more trees and flowers make a lovely garden for people to see.

    @ Hotel @alison Yes I gather there’s financial problems – hope it manages to keep things going

    I drove past Lytham Hall quite recently and I’m sure the fund raising sign was still outside. It’s a huge shame because I remember going to Lytham Hall for open days many years ago
