So lovely is the countryside around us, that you really don't need an excuse to walk through it... but I found one! I am doing my best to lose weight and the folk of Brixton have been so kind and encouraging. Here's some photographs I took on one of my walks... I started at the stile behind Cherry Tree drive...
... turning left down the lane towards the A379...
Over the stile by the fine Cofflete path...
... and finding one of my favourite flowers.
... was this a Komodo Dragon?

In the first meadow, a tree like a skeletal hand, pointing skywards...

... and a magnificent Beech.
The vista through a gateway westwards...
... and in the second meadow, where I found some curious residents...
... and a shy youngster!
Another grand view westwards...
... before the stile on Steer Point Road.
The Broad Ooze.
Looking south eastwards above Dragberry Plantation.
A new life...
... and another curious bunch!
Along Steer Point Road and back into our village..
... up towards Stamps Hilll and before turning westwards at Woolaton Cross.
A breather and a view from the stile where I started!
These two fine photographs are by David Lowden
