Yesterday was another gorgeous today, so after shopping we went for a walk to Spring Wood, which is part of an old deciduous wood, but the rest is forestry planting. The thing I notice about Google Earth, is how far the farms are way into the landscape far away from the roads, approached by tracks of half a mile or so. The other thing you notice that wandering amongst these great fir trees is the lack of bird life.
There is a dry beck that runs alongside the track, Lucy managed to get down there and scampered back and forth through the pipe that ran below the track, at this point we met two beautiful horses, one being ridden and the other exercised by a woman and she gave us a progress report on Lucy's appearances.
I see on the map that tumuli is mentioned in the part we did not go, but could not see them on Google, there seems to be an old stone road, which led up through the steep part of the wood and pointed to a farm in the distance. At the top, there was a contraption of about 12 feet in the wood, should have taken a photo, can only think it was for sitting and shooting anything that came by.
