For many people, nature is a place of solace and filled with a lifetime of memories. As this year has been one of uncertainty, the team at Southwell Minster decided to reflect on how important nature is to us. This initiative is part of the ‘Leaves of Southwell’ project, part-funded by the National Heritage Lottery Fund, to celebrate and reflect on the natural world. Below, Joyce shares her favourite memories of spending time in nature – and we would love to hear about your memories of time spent in the countryside or in parks, gardens and allotments.
