The flowering success of Hodsock Priory
An English country house in Nottinghamshire, just a mile south of Blyth, lies Hodsock Priory. Despite its name, it has never been a priory; the site has, however, been occupied since at least the Bronze Age and is now a popular wedding venue complete with Tudor gatehouse and acres of gardens. Its grounds are famous for their snowdrops fields in February and bluebells in May.
