Bank Hall Snowdrops

Tuesday 22nd February

Bank Hall

Liverpool Rd


PR26 9AT

Bank Hall gardens comprise 18 acres; specimen trees in the grounds include a yew thought to be the oldest in Lancashire. The Bank Hall Action Group has tended the grounds since its formation in 1995, and intends to restore architectural features such as low garden walls, statues, a conservatory and greenhouses. After a visit from the Snowdrop Society in 2007 Bank Hall is now well-known and the many varieties are much admired during February. Bring along your spotter’s guide!
Specimen trees have been identified and named, and new ones planted for the future; the removal, storage and cataloguing of artefacts continues, along with research; events continue to augment the funds which allow more projects. Some of these are 

The Tower Appeal                                          The Million Pennies Appeal

A Moment in Time Appeal                             The Potting Shed Project

Our guide will be Lionel Taylor, archivist and secretary of the Friends of Bank Hall.
There is no tea room, so please bring your own drink if you need one.
The address is Liverpool Road Leyland PR26 9AT

 Meeting time 10.30am.

 Afterwards we shall go to Rufford Old Hall for lunch; the hall, gardens and café are open from 11 am to 4 pm. You will need a National Trust membership card to gain free parking. L37 1LJ. Booking form available here
