North Cliffe Wood Nature Reserve is managed by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust and is well worth a visit at any time of year, but especially so in late April/early May when there are carpets of bluebells throughout the woods

There are a few roadside parking spaces along Sand Lane by the two entrances to the wood and we parked in one of these and followed the track along the western edge of the wood. Within a couple of minutes we were greeted by the wonderful sight – and scent – of countless bluebells

We walked around the perimeter of the wood, as well as a small area of heathland where grass snakes may regularly be seen basking, though we didn’t see any today

We then re-entered the wood, following a path around the edge until we arrived back at the start
