It was indeed a wet one. It just rained and rained and rained. But Aaron and myself soldiered on. I think carrying the bench parts down to where it is sited was the hardest part. My back, legs and shoulders ache badly.
But look!! It’s all about the view. Just to sit there and look over towards Cawston Reservoir and woods.
Or the other way across arable crop fields. This is to die for. Every bench has a window and a view like this.
Looking up and down the path…
For me, this is too tight. It needs to be three meters wide at least. We will get a hedge-trimmer soon and push back the scrub. Once we get into a rhythm we will be cutting back sections and start a three-year cycle of cutting right back. This is the only way that we can have a dry path.
Next one is this Sunday down at the Draycote end. We are just walking up snipping back any bramble that is shooting across the path. Travel light with just a pair of hand snippers and walk up to Potford Dam and back.
Good, if wet, day today.
