We were recently invited to one of Richard Jarmy Photography’s bluebell pop-up photoshoots. I had heard of the bluebell walk at Fairhaven and I know a few people who’ve been to Blickling to see them but it’s never really occurred to me to take the Mini Mumblers to see any bluebells. Richard’s shoots are in woods in Costessey (details below) and after a short walk into the centre of the woods, we were in the middle of a semi-clearing in amongst loads of the beautiful flowers. I had never even heard of these woods, let alone heard they were a good place to go and see bluebells!
I’ve listed the information below of all the places I’ve found on the internet from various sources, including the EDP and Norwich Mumbler Chat group. Let me know if you find somewhere not on the list and we’ll add it on for next year!
Bacton Wood — Not far from North Walsham on the Happisburgh Road.
And some of my own snaps from the location of Richard’s shoot… East Hills Wood, Longwater Lane, Costessey, NR5 0TH There is a small car park with entrance opposite the Pymm & Co. Walk down the path and take the left hand fork, the bluebells are just a few minutes walk away and the path is mostly buggy friendly (if a little muddy at the moment).
Full disclosure: The bluebell photoshoot was a freebie for Norwich Mumbler but I wasn’t asked to put together a post about bluebells or even asked to post any of the photos. I’ve worked with Richard a few times now and only work with people I trust and businesses that have a similar ethos to Mumbler. With Richard it’s always a great experience and I would highly recommend using him as a photographer. If you’re interested in booking a slot at his last bluebell pop-up photoshoot, here’s the LINK.
