Spring has sprung at a Suffolk Tudor manor house.

Fields of snowdrops have greated visitors at Kentwell Hall, in Long Melford near Sudbury.

Every spring, the estate's gardens and back wood are carpeted with snowdrops and little pockets of aconites.

'Snowdrops Days' at the hall started last weekend, with visitors treated to the blooming flowers in the February sunshine.

East Anglian Daily Times:

The event is the traditional curtain raiser at the manor house and runs throughout the half term and then every weekend until Sunday, March 5.

The attention then turns to the hall’s lambing weekends.

A spokesman for Kentwell Hall said: “It was wonderful to welcome visitors once again to Kentwell Hall ahead of a busy programme of events this year. 

“Spring is a lovely time to visit with carpets of snowdrops and little pockets of bright yellow aconites still showing. There is a contrast between a mix of colour with the yews and conifers and the winter starkness shown by the shapes of the bare trees. 

“For our younger visitors, there’s also the Tudor Rose courtyard maze and a varied storybook trail.”
