Wool, Wiltshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Exploring the neighbourhood

So here we are in Lockdown the Second, exercise is permitted, andstaying local is encouraged. So I am exploring my neighbourhood, and enjoying the last days of Autumn.

The leaves are falling rapidly now and you can just about glimpse our house through the wood.
Still seems incredible to me that we have views like this in a massive and not very attractive large town.
just off the footpath there are pockets of trees, love the light that streams through.
Lady Lane

I have always walked up this road before, time to go down. On the right hand side was a mobile home site for the over 50s set in the grounds of an old Abbey.

To the left, the field wherein there are the roman ruins- houses at the bottom and the lane took me through this estate to a large road at the bottom which joins an even bigger road that goes all the way to Cirencester.

On my way home as the sun went down.

  1. Good photos of a lovely countryside – thank you, Cathy! Do you mind if I ask about what time of day you were walking? That last piccie looks about 5 or 6 PM over here – (1700 or 1800 your time). But I know your timings are different as you’re farther away from the equator.

  2. Lovely scenery! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  3. What lovely views indeed! We are locked down again until Dec. 14 although in the spring they kept extending it so we will see. Fortunately I got some new waterproof boots so my walking can continue even as we are having more rain. Take care

    • We are locked down till Dec2, hoefully we will be allowed to do more after that- I have a new hair appointment booked for the 9th. You take care too.

  4. Looks like you have some lovely lanes to explore, so happy to see you have these green spaces to enjoy!

  5. Beautiful photos. We are entering our summer season here and in Melbourne Victoria today it’s going to be 31 degrees !

  6. It would give me chills to walk by Roman ruins, I cannot wait to visit the UK someday and get my chills on! Thanks for taking us on your walk, very cool! 🙂

  7. I like the first photo, the autumn colours are lovely 🙂

  8. It’s amazing when you start to explore how many hidden pockets of nature you can find even in an urban area.Lovely photos

  9. Gosh, I can almost feel the chill. But also the wonderful smell of rotting leaves, fresh, damp vegetation and country air. Today in north Queensland we’ll be getting 30°C…

  10. Beautiful pictures! How nice to have such pockets of nature in the city.
