Fritillary Sunday

Fritillary Sunday is an annual event in Ducklington near Witney and is a fund raising day for the church when the 10 acre meadow near St Bartholemew's Church that grows the Snakeshead Fritillary is open.

The 2015 event took place on Sunday 19th April.

Snake's HEad Fritillary



St Bartholemew's Church, DucklingtonThe Church in Ducklington refers to the importance of the fritillary in carvings, a stained glass window and embroidery on the altar cloth and kneelers.

The Snake's Head Fritillary has been adopted as the emblem for Oxfordshire. Oxfordshire is one of the only places where the Fritillary can be seen in abundance and thrives in damp pastures like the field near Ducklington Church, and Magdalen Meadow and Iffley Meadow in Oxford.

This event is organised by Ducklington Church and raises funds for the church.
