Walk in Constables Country 28th October 2011

Image
We set off from Highview Grange site and drove to Dedham on the 28th October 2011 for a walk from Dedham to Flatford Mill.

We walked along crossing the bridge over the River Stour, looking down on the boat hire and watching the chub and dace swimming in the currents.



We followed the river along...................



After about 3/4 to a mile, the ground got too much for the mother-in-law, so she and Jeanette set back to the car, whilst the rest of us carried on.

We crossed the Fen Bridge but stopped to have a game of Pooh Sticks first. Then continued further along the river.








I has another look around the exhibition again, forgetting the low ceiling n the building I managed to whack my head quite hard...Ouch!!


Walk around Roydon,Essex 18th October 2011

On 18th October 2011 I set off in the car with no specific destination in mind for a walk, after driving through Epping I saw signs for Roydon. Remembering I wanted to take a look one day My dog Ben and I made our there.
Upon arriving I parked up in Roydon Marina Village and walked along the Stort Navigation.







We walked as far as we could until we came to a dead end, so we walked back to the car and I drove back into the village a little and parked up and walked back towards the River Stort Navigation.




Then we walked past St Peters Church.........


A little further along Something caught my eye...I thought is that a Turkey?? Yes it was then I noticed the sign....


We reached the Stort Navigation again....
