An amble in Austy wood
« on: 17:34:36, 15/05/20 »




I walked or rather ambled 4 mile in search of bluebells but it was too late in the year as I half expected.

Still there were some lovely views and the bird song seemed louder than usual.??

It was a late decision to go, but I am so glad I did....it is all good therapy isn`t it...  O0

Thanks!The bluebells in our garden are only now just dying off and I thought just maybe there might be a show in the woods, but alas they are all but gone.  O0

Lovely photos - there's something a bit special about walking beside water.

Nice photos.  O0

The photos remind me of a spot in the Cotswolds. I've no idea where Austy Woods is though - except that it's apparently somewhere in the 'Rest of England'.  ;)

Austey Wood looks nice.  I too had no idea where it is until you posted the map and saw Wootan Wawan near it.  I used to drive through the village on a regular basis years ago while long distance courting from Cumbria, lovely village and countryside. O0

Memories . ? :)
There is a wonderful church in Wootton Wawen. Something like a 1000 years old..I took this photo a few years back.

Yes I can remember the church above the wide sweeping bend through the village. Even after all those years.  :)

There is a lovely general provisions shop opposite the church that still trades and was very busy today.
The sun really lights up the church on the south side, from round mid day onwards  :)

Lovely pics G&P.  I can image it's very calming and peaceful walking along the river/canal  :)

Thanks Mel it does put things into perspective.
That stretch of water is the Stratord Upon Avon canal. A lovely bridge can be crossed to go on up into Austy Wood. O0

This is a shot of the Blubells in the wood back in 2008...(I feel old sometimes when looking back through pics & realise when they were taken... ;) )
