Barcroft Hall, South Petherton.

I recently received the email copied below which gives up to date information about the Field of Dreams. I am hoping to visit soon after the opening date of 30th June.
This is a very big experiment in creating a wild flower meadow out of derelict farm land and produced a wonderful display last summer. I took this photo last summer:

As usual more information is on their web . Click here:

Or copy this web address:

Brian and Denise have worked hard to create the meadows , orchards and gardens and support local charities and I hope eventually to persuade them to support Somerset Wildlife Trust not just because of their Field of Dreams but because of the work done throughout their estate.

The conservation techniques employed here are somewhat different to the usual approach of the Wildlife Trust  but I feel its a good idea to visit to get your own view of their efforts across the whole of their estate.

Hi Everyone

It seems like summer is here at last!

I thought I would write and let you know that the Field of Dreams 2012, despite the difficult spring weather is flourishing and  and we hope to see the first blooms within weeks, ready for the gates to open on Saturday June 30th. 2012.

This year there are over 60 different wildflower species planted and an even larger area for you to enjoy!

So if you are thinking of visiting us please register as soon as you know your plans.

For those who are wanting to come to the wonderful ‘Opera through the Flowers’ on July 7th. then I would strongly advise you to book as early as possible as it is proving very popular indeed and there is a limited number of tickets available. It’s an evening designed for everyone to enjoy!

You can book by telephoning 01444 443000 or on line

All other details about this year’s Field of Dreams, accommodation, places to eat and directions are to found by visiting

Thanks so much for your support, all for charity!

With best wishes
