Sunday Walk

Didn't get round to download the pictures from my camera until today, but here are a few pictures from the walk I went on last Sunday. I started in Lacock (yes, the home of Lacock Abbey) and made my way down to the River Avon to cross it towards Reybridge. My walk then continued along a disused canal parallel to the Avon before crossing a few fields to Nocketts Hill. From here it wasn't too far any more to Derry Hill. My map told me that I would find a pub here and I was in luck: The Lansdowne Arms was open and I was able to enjoy a Guinness in their beer garden.

Late in the afternoon I started to make my way back to Lacock. Crossing Cocklemoor Brook several times and walking through Pigsty Copse I passed Loxwell Farm. Through and past several fields I continued to Bowden Park, from where I had some very nice views towards western Wiltshire in the warm evening sun. Then it was time for the home stretch past Bewley Green and back over the Avon to Lacock.

A very nice Sunday afternoon walk, even though some of the walking was rough going with the footpaths very overgrown. My legs were itching quite a bit when I arrived back home (I was wearing shorts, not a good idea). The Lansdowne Arms seemed to be a pub worth returning to, probably after another walk in the area, may be around Bowood Park.

Update: Duncan has been out walking as well, in Franken (Frankonia?) around Bamberg/Germany. A few pictures here, here and here. Very nice and really quite similar to what I saw last weekend.
