Best source of bilberries/winberries is by Peel Tower, on Holcombe Hill, just near Bury - amazingly good harvests every year, as long as you get there before everyone else!
Oh yes the wonderfull blaeberry as we call them over here in N.I. In fact in the Mourne mountains you can find Blaeberry mounatin/hill. Great fun picking and eating on a days walk.
We don't seem to get them round here and I love em. :(
Plenty of 'em out on Dartmoor! - add them to your bannock - Yum! :D
mmm bilberrys and custard...
next time you are in snowdonia in august there is a carpet of them at about 500m plus....
they are lovely boil em in water for a minute to kill anythin on them....
Our season down here in God's little acre has well and truely been and gone...and to be honest there's not much of them about :(
