Nunney and Mells in east Mendip are fabulous spots for snowdrops. So I guessed the churches nearby should, hopefully, be just as good. First I headed to Whatley. I often cycle passed the church using the little cut through to avoid the small loop around following the main road. Sadly no snowdrops there. Then I was rewarded by a great display at the tiny village of Chanty.
As you can see from the distortion in the picture above it was a difficult church to photograph. Just too close. I headed off in the direction of Dead Woman’s Bottom (mainly because of its interesting name) but also hoping for a view back to wards the church. In the end I found the best view from was the back garden of the house neighbouring the church – of course after asking the owner if it was ok and trying to help fix their drain pipe which had come away from the wall.
Around the back of the church is a lovely display of snowdrops.
The winter sun was low but in the perfect spot to bring the flowers to life.
I snitched together a picture of Whatley church, sadly virtually no snowdrops.
