Wild Lupins growing at Terwick Church Field

Wild Lupins at Terwick Church Field

There’s an amazing sight beside the A272 near Rogate in West Sussex.

A rainbow field of lupins, growing wild in a meadow beside St Peter’s 12th Century Church at Terwick, West Sussex. The field has been managed by the National Trust since it was left to them in 1939 by a lady called Jane Patterson-Lodge (a Titanic survivor), in memory of her late husband Thomas Patterson-Lodge. She gave it to the Trust on the condition that it would continue to be a Lupin field.

No doubt Mrs Patterson-Lodge is looking down on this riot of colour with a big smile – it’s great!
