This week the Church Explorer visits St Giles Cumnor a wonderful church in a prominent position in the village. This blog is split over two weeks with part 2 showing the inside of the church
A few more photo's I too from Days lock the other day only making sure there was a good helping of sky in them
On the way there I stopped off to get a photo of this new estate which is another piece of land grabbing so the farmland up to the bypass could be used for new housing, these are the first few built, all around more are going up.
Days lock only this time taken with my R6
Looking upstream from the lock
This a closer look taken from the bottom of the bridge, this part of the clumps is Castle hill which is an old iron age fort
From the bottom of the bridge again looking towards the weir
Day's lock is at a place called Little Wittenham along the Thames near Dorchester. I went along there with my son to get some photos of the lock and other interesting places nearby.
After parking near the church you follow the path along here towards the bridge you see. There is another one after this I did not get a photo of which is the Poohsticks bridge of at least was, the arch bridge I remember has been replaced by a flat decked bridge that is able to support traffic to the Environment Agency compound there
Skipping a bit here and over the third bridge this is from the bridge looking towards Dorchester and the abbey there
This is Days lock which is to the right
The arch span I took the photos from
The weir with a lot of water flowing through it
Not something you would want to fall in
You can just see Poohsticks bridge in the distance which is not as romantic as the old wooden one. No doubt kids still play pooh stick there
This is the bridge I took the photos from earlier
Time to head back over the bridge past the Lock Keepers cottage You can see more photos around the lock on Skywatch Friday
Take Care and have a good week
Take care everyone
Monday morning it was time to get up and let the dog out. On opening the door I looked along the patio & noticed the sky, it was red
Some photos of a couple of squirrels from different pats of the country
The first ones are form Wales and a tree just over from our caravan. In the tree is a squirrel
He looks aware I'm watching him
This week the Church Explorer visits St Giles Newington. This is a church I have passed by many times and quite often stopped to see if it was open only to walk away disappointed. A few weeks ago I noticed it was open so stopped to get photos of the inside.
I showed a few random photos a couple of weeks ago, these were the skywatch photo's I was meant to show that week.
