The area around Matlock has rich and varied flora. Join this group if you would like to discover more about our local wild flowers.

You will be welcome at our monthly walks and don’t need to be an expert in finding and identifying wildflowers as members share their knowledge and expertise and learn together along the way.

The group meets on the third Thursday of each month from March to October, 9:30 to 11:30am, for a short walk in the Derbyshire countryside.

The walks are typically no more than 1.5 miles on smooth trails or good paths with no stiles and usually not steep - we will warn you in advance if there are any steep sections.

The groups' coordinators are Judith Holt, who can be contacted by email by clicking on her name, Irene Hayward - telephone 01629 57918 and Karen Hale - telephone 01629 259763.
