DODDINGTON TORRY HILL CIRCULAR WALK.
I was lost (again)at this point but they are oblivious and trusting
Reminds me of the Startrite advert for shoes
You've had the Ying,well this is the Yang (asbestos falvoured)
As more families married into the first family the subsequent coat of arms was added to several times.
Wall paintings in the church which escaped the attention of Oliver Cromwell,as did the electric fan
Lovely gorgeous plums
here's the elf and safety aspect of the well,which is not shown on the map
We reckon its at least 100 feet deep and lined with flints
Its like trying to mind mice at a crossroads with this lot
It was raining when we started from Doddington Church,but the rain was warm.
It soon stopped and we paused to remove our jackets in a plum orchard,which was not going to be harvested this year(not by the grower anyway)We turned towards Great Higham,although my map reading went somewhere else.We did fetch up at Bluetown crossroads as planned ,then crossed hogsaw wood to Torrey Hill park,where we stopped for refreshment on a log pile,where I went wrong again,and we emerged at Hollybushes,in mitigation it was nice parkland and gentle walking.Through Little Higham to west end and back through the Plum Orchard.When we arrived back at the car park,we had a look at the church(see pix) and then continued into Sharsted wood.
Next week Frinsted and blackberries are on the menu.10:00 @ church.
6 of us 8 miles rain/sun/wind
