The other day D and I went for a walk by the River Till. From where we parked the car the path ascends above the river along a tree-lined path.
The remains of an old chapel, St Mary’s Chapel are just below the path – only the outline of the chapel and a cross can be seen.
D recorded the route on his iPhone – this extract below shows the position of the chapel.
The path gradually descends to the river side.
Then we spied a heron motionless on the opposite bank.
It saw us too and flew away. Then I spotted it in the river.
Again we were seen and it flew away. I just pointed the camera and hoped to capture it flying – you can just see it over the water
and landing on the bank further upstream.
We continued our walk along the riverbank, meeting a group of cyclists struggling to ride on the stony surface (the route is Sustrans 68).
After a rest on this seat we turned round and walked back.
