Farndale Daffodil Walk
Lenten lilies is the name that people of Yorkshire used to call the Farndale Daffodil Walk. In fact, you will be taken away by the thousands of flowers that cover the wooden benches that sit across the river. In order to get there, you will need to walk for only three-and-a-half miles long from Low Mill to Church Houses and back. However, make sure that you visit this place between mid-March and mid-April because at that time, the daffodils will be out, and try to avoid weekends because it can get very busy.
