Aaw - he must have taken great pride in his work.
So many paths yet to walk, so little time left

Another day , another bench .



I like to read memorials too but
Warning - never visit Sidmouth. There must be upwards of fifty memorial benches on the SWCP up the hill leading westwards.
and as for the Donkey Sanctuary nearby ..........

At times I use a well placed bench and of course especially if it is time to eat and drink . I do have mixed feelings about how many seem to be appearing all over the Countryside though .


I read quite a while back about how a guy dislikes cairns because he thinks they spoil the natural state of things in desolate places .Yet I quite like cairns , especially on hills and suchlike . I always bag them before moving on .  O0

Did your curiosity take you down to find out why?

I know the area and the road leads to a river that is too deep for most vehicles but it does appear that tractors and extra large vehicles use it occasionally as far as I can see .The first time I came across it was many years ago , when walking with a friend and the route we planned was to go across the ford presuming there would be a foot bridge...we had to change our planned route .. ::)

Here is the river crossing .

Took a swift walk near home , down to a place called Hopwood and along the Worcestershire canal . This is one of my favourite views at the moment .Looks desolate and spooky to me .

Live too far away myself, you're lucky to live so close.

I have lived here since 1985 and it is only in the last 2 years I have taken to walking on the fells. Prior to that I was either playing golf or cycling.
For anyone interested picture was taken with a Panasonic TZ80 (about 200) with it set for "Distinct Scenery" and copied straight from the camera with no adjustments.
