    1. Thanks, Lynette. I took this one on the way back home after a longish walk. And, as it’s such a familiar sight for me, I almost didn’t record it. But comments on previous shots of such familiar places prompted me to share these, so there it is.

  2. I spent several minutes thinking/imagining why someone built a wall in the middle of the forest. A slanted wall! Either some bricks have fallen down or there is some kind of decoration built into the wall. Anyway, it is a beautiful tree-laden walkway. Thanks for posting.

    1. I can solve the mystery, Brenda. The trail runs along what used to be a railway line and lies along the contour of a fairly steep hillside. The wall, built in Victorian times, is there to prevent the upper slope sliding down onto what was the railway track. It’s very solid, and has stood for at least 160 years: those Victorian engineers knew how to build!
      The line stopped carrying passengers way back in the 1930s, and was closed in the 1960s. The Forestry Commission took over the forest and landscaped some of the old tracks to form pedestrian walkways. This one lies just a short distance from our home and is part of a frequent route into the deeper forest for us.
