Wild Garlic, Bluebells and a Priory

Bolton Abbey

Spent a beautiful day in Wharfedale at Bolton Abbey, with its ruined 12th Century Augustinian priory and its functioning Anglican church. It is a glorious spot with the river running down through the valley.

The woods were full of bluebells and wild garlic – very late, presumably because of the cold spring – and the scent of the gentle garlic pervaded most of our walk.
