Nostalgia: ‘A place of great importance’

Snakes Head Fritillary

Country Diary: Fast-declining species found at Raincliffe

The highlight of recent hectic days simply had to be a treasure discovered by Martin Bishop, in Raincliffe Woods. His superb photographs revealed the dainty Snake’s Head Fritillary (Fritillaria meleagris) with nodding, bell-shaped flowers of dull purple chequered with darker patches. A second variety was all white, named Alba or Aphrodite. This short perennial is inconspicuous when not in bloom, as its leaves are grass-like. Flowering during April and May they’re unmistakeable.

Peasholm Park, Scarborough.

Walks: Peasholm Park and the Willow Pattern story

Whether you’re a resident of Scarborough, or a visitor on holiday here, I’m sure Peasholm Park will rank as one of your finest attractions. You may have seen it many times, but with a circular walk detailing features en route, this makes it more interesting.
