Welcome to my blog.
Don't expect anything too high-tech or flashy, this is simply a 'diary' to share some of my photos, thoughts and observations - with a particular bias towards the natural world and the countryside around my home.

After being 'rained-off' yesterday, we had a good walk today along the Nutbrook Trail this morning. Usually, we stick to the trail around Shipley Park, but this morning, we headed south in the direction of Kirk Hallam.
The trail is crossed by several old road bridges and in some parts, traces of the railway lines which once ran along here can still be seen in the embankments.
Near Kirk Hallam, the lake known locally as the 'Beauty Spot' offers a quite, secluded bit of water amid the bustle of roads, joggers, cyclists and a scum-bag on a (probably stolen) motorbike!
