We shall be visiting two separate locations in Fermanagh, starting at Castle Caldwell Woods outside Belleek, and then moving on to Florencecourt House and Gardens, not too far from Belcoo.
The arrangement is that members will meet initially at the large Topaz service station on the A46 just on the outskirts of Belleek at 12 noon, and members can car-share from there to Castle Caldwell Forest (where there should be great opportunity to photograph the bluebells).
For any members who will be travelling direct to Florencecourt House, the plan is to arrive there at 3:00pm. If you drive in through the main gate (or even walk in through it) there is a charge of £6 per adult. However, if you drive past the main gate (on your right) there is another locked gate about 40 meters or so further on, also on the right.There is a stile beside this locked gate that you can climb over and walk up to the house for free. The walk takes about 5 to 10 minutes and leads through the woods where there are a lot of photo opportunities.
