Unfortunately for public safety reasons, there will be no access to Knott Wood to see the bluebells this year.

This is the official statement that we have received from the landowner, the Lawes Agricultural Estate :

"LAT (Lawes Agricultural Trust) is in active discussions with the town council regarding access generally around Rothamsted Estate. We are constantly making improvements to enhance the publics safe use on a private working estate. This requires some private areas being closed at times while work is undertaken.

Currently Knott Wood is one of these closed areas – and will remain so for this bluebell season. The natural flora in the wood needs some time to rejuvenate and tree surveys need to be done to mitigate public risk in this area. We anticipate having a new permissive path open next season making it safe and accessible.

While we understand the enjoyment of seeing the bluebells we thank you for your respect in this and encourage you to visit the other well known bluebell woods in the area."
