A nature group has set out paths to protect native bluebells.

Bluebells at Wanstead Park usually peak in late April and Wanstead's Wren Group have cleared paths to stop them getting trampled.

Paths have been tidied and log edgings created in the last few weeks in Chalet Wood, which displays thousands of one of Britain’s most characteristic flowers.

So glad they have done this. Only morons would trample on and ruin such beatiful plants; maybe they'll realise not to this year.

This is good, but the only problem is, even though people will stick to the paths, some dog walkers still let their dogs run loose all over the bluebell areas of the woods, trampling the flowers anyway. A message needs to be conveyed about keeping dogs on the lead here.

Tiny Tim use to Tip Toe thought the tulips so this was all that was needed but of course the are bluebells so extra care is needed and I agree with the comment about dogs in these woods off leads, should not be permitted.
