Warley Place is now a nature reserve run by The Essex Wildlife Trust. It was formerly the home of Miss Ellen Willmott who died in 1934. She was a keen horticulturist. The grounds are an example of what happens when a garden is neglected and nature takes over. Decades of the multiplication of the daffodill bulbs. (The trust is now in the process of managing the woodland areas.)
Although our walk takes us through the woods and fields and conservatory ruins with many interesting things, it is the daffodills that we are feasting on today.
