Part two the climb home,
The second and larger of the fords isnt so deep as its the main flow of the river and empties well, clear and bright water, lots of signal crayfish in here,
I pootled over this great lift bridge, the bench is dedicated to the old canal Ranger, he has a lovely view
His view, if you carry on up this way you will eventually get to the Greywell tunnel, some info on it here
and on the reason for it being a SSSI here
A mile or so towards home and its all uphill from here
Stopped at a pillbox, brilliant field of view(once they brush is cut back obviously)
Back down to the Junction,
and across the fields,
Then back to the hill,
Maybe a little cut through?
DAMMIT! oh well up the hill we go,
The view is worth it though,(see what i ment re the water )
Maybe there is some shelter in the woods?
Or at least a trig point
But no, no shelter,
the water was streaming down the Beeches, luuuuuuurvley,
A little jaunt back towards home and a warm shower,
Hmmmmm should I take these off before going in to switch on the kettle?
Hope you enjoyed my very rainy day run, will get more pics when the sun comes out to play
