Inspired by the beautiful snowdrops that carpet the woodland floor around Babworth Church each spring, we’re encouraging the Pilgrim Roots community to share pictures of snowdrops from wherever they are. Curated in this snowdrop gallery are pictures taken at Babworth itself, and in gardens and neighbourhoods where people have been taking their daily exercise.
The Snowdrop Gallery
Brought to you online for 2021!
A popular snowdrop festival usually takes place each year at All Saints' Church, Babworth.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, we are hosting snowdrop pictures here where they can be enjoyed from the safety of your own home.
Scroll through the images and enjoy.
Although the ‘mayflower’ is the blossom most associated with the pilgrim story, we think snowdrops are a great symbol the Pilgrim Roots region. They are a sign of hope in the coming season, like the hope for a better life that the Separatists carried with them to Holland and then America. Plus, hundreds of snowdrops appear each year around the Church where Clyfton preached and the story all began. We hope getting out and about to take your own photos, or admiring those others have taken, will help promote wellbeing in this very strange year.
If you are inspired to share pictures of signs of spring from where you are, please send them to us @PilgrimRoots on twitter & Facebook, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why not craft your own snowdrops during the half term? Below is a simple craft video.
