Conker hunting at Lilford Park
September and October is also conker season. The grounds of Lilford Park are speculated to be full of them in the autumn months thanks to its horse chestnut trees, so grab a basket and get ready for a game of good old-fashioned conkers. Did you ever play conkers as a child? Have your children ever played? If not, now is the time to learn and teach your children, and pass the time together with this tradition.
