Blackberry picking in Welwyn Hatfield
6th October 2016
... Comments

It’s blackberry season and this year there seems to be a bumper crop.  Blackberry picking outside in the autumn sunshine is a lovely way to while away a couple of hours and a great way to entertain the kids (it’s no. 21 on the National Trust’s list of 50 things to do before you are 11 ¾!)  And then you get to eat the fruits of your labour!

So we asked locals residents for their favourite places to pick blackberries – and this is what they said (please let us know any more and we will add them to the list):

Lane next to the golf range at Gosling Sports Park

Lane near Crooked Chimney pub, Marford Road

Ayot Greenway and footpaths off it

King George V playing field

Between Dalewood and Moneyhole

Commons Nature Reserve

Hatfield Forest

Lanes near Tewin

Lemsford end of Valley Road

Field between Sheepcote and Archers Ride

End of lane near Mill Green Golf Club

Happy picking!
