WALK NOTES

Hopton Hall

On a sunny Saturday morning Gill and Nicola joined me to visit the Snowdrops at Hopton Hall. The Hall is situated in the lovely hamlet of Hopton which is a few miles north of Ashbourne near Carsington Reservoir. There is a woodland walk around the grounds of Hopton Hall which includes visits to the various gardens and lake. As well as Snowdrops there were also lots of Aconites to view too. Refreshments were served in the Hall and plants were sold in the entrance to the Hall. Hopton Hall can trace its roots back to being a 12th century manor House when it boasted an estate of 3,700 acres some of which now stands under the Carsington Reservoir.
