Theale

The small Somerset village of Theale sits between Wells and Wedmore.  I’m not sure how to pronounce its name – I would like to go with ‘The ale’, but I assume thats unlikely.

The church is not the best looking in the area but it does put on a fabulous display of primroses each spring.

The church has great views over Panborough Moor towards the slopes of the Mendip Hills.

But it’s the primroses that draw me back each year.

    I have never known such a good year for primroses in Somerset, masses in the hedgerows and Wookey churchyard too. I am intending to do some plant recording in unmown churchyards. Theale looks promising.

      I missed those in Wookey churchyard, but Theale does do a fabulous display. I did not get out as much this spring as I hoped. It seems that working from home does not equate to shorter hours!
