Spring is in the air, aconites and snowdrops are bursting from the sodden ground, a refreshing breeze blows from the River Trent, and all is hustle and bustle in the cake-making kitchens of Knaith and Knaith Park. Hurry up they say, it’s not too long before we welcome the hundreds of visitors who will wander along the yellows and nodding whites, who will take their dogs (on leads please) and walk alongside the mighty River Trent to the Gate Burton Chateau which sits on a high knoll like a doll’s house.
Visitors will breathe in the air and gaze at the peaceful setting of St Mary’s Church, discover some of its curious past, and then toast their toes in front of a roaring log fire in Knaith Hall to sample delicious homemade cakes.
Do join organisers to welcome spring on the Snowdrop Walk at Knaith Hall on Sunday 18th February from 11.00am to 3.00pm. Entrance is £2.50 in aid of St. Mary’s Church Knaith. Knaith Hall is on the A156 Lincoln/Gainsborough Road — three miles south of Gainsborough.
