All Saints’ Parish Church in Babworth provided the ideal setting for nature to put on a magnificent display of snowdrops this week.

Around 600 people visited the church on Saturday February 13 and Sunday February 14 to walk the snowdrop trail and enjoy the homemade refreshments on sale in the church.

The guests were also treated to a wide range of paintings by Bassetlaw artist, Gerry Fruin.

Known as “the church in the woodland”, , All Saints’ is best known for its role in the separatist movement of the 17th century.

Gerry Fruin and Bassetlaw Christian Heritage will be returning to All Saints’ Babworth between May 28 and 30 2015 as part of the churches commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the death of Richard Clyfton, a central character in the separist movement.
