A review of the bluebell season – with specific attention to protecting the flowers from being trampled – took place at a meeting of the Wanstead Park Liaison Group last month.

“Given the large visitor numbers this year and the impossibility of policing the area, the consensus was that the informal barriers had worked well. However, licenced bushcraft activities in the wigwam area had led to some local trampling, so that may be moved elsewhere in future years,” said a spokesperson.
