Daily Forest Walk Picture 27.04.20

Spreading a bit of light and pleasure to those confined by the current crisis. See post 1, here, for an explanation.

This is the 24th post.

A brief one today, following our short walk.

The picture shows the partly collapsed stone wall erected in the Victorian age by the railway builders. It propped up an embankment, and the trail we now follow was once a forest road, giving access to horses and carts transporting stone and coal. Time and light use have softened the whole mood here. We use the trail as an alternative to the one atop the embankment that follows the line of the old railway tracks; it’s a quieter route, used mostly by local walkers.

No sunshine today, and we’re promised rain over the next few days, so we’ll have to watch the weather and move out when we see it’s dry.

I hope the pic brings some pleasure. Enjoy!

Keep safe and well, everyone!

It’ll help others enjoy this bit of nature if you could spread the word with the ‘share’ buttons below. Let’s all do what we can for each other during this testing time, please. Thank you.

    1. They’re worked stones, Tom: the sandstone that makes up much of the local bedrock, and is the reason there are quite a lot of quarries around here.

  1. I love the green contrasted against the trail and trees. It is a peaceful place I suspect. It reminds me of a walk I do with my son along a trail that follows a creek in a rock canyon. Lovely spot and cool during the heat of summer.- David

    1. Yes, serene. In full summer, the canopy is almost complete and provides a shaded haven from the heat. Mind you, this is England, so heat isn’t usually too much of an issue!
