Views again

Once more, some general views.  Today's walk took us round Shipley Lake, then through the wood to what is called on modern maps, Well Pond and what was part of Parkfield Farm in the 19th century.  The pond is full of Canadian Pond Weed and the surface is almost covered by Duckweed, but a family of Moorhens have made it their home.
From the pond, the vista opens out to show Shipley Hill (a little closer than it was in yesterday's picture) beyond an old Scots Pine tree.
