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. “Hurry up”, they say. Soon they will welcome many visitors who will wander along to gaze at the cheery yellow aconites and the elegant carpets of snowdrops; who will bring 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.
The Snowdrop Walk takes place at Knaith Hall, Knaith, Gainsborough on Sunday 16th February. Visitors will breathe in the air and enjoy the peace 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 home-made cakes.
Do join them to Welcome Spring on the Snowdrop Walk 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.
