Having said that, we were thankful for the incorrect forecast as we set out for a walk around Shipley Park.
The slight mist which still hung in the air as we walked along the Nutbrook Trail, added to the atmosphere with the sunshine filtering through the trees. Then it was on to the 'farm walk' which took us around Head House Farm and on to Slack Lane. Looking back from the farm towards the small cluster of houses known as The Brook, the mist lay in a thin, flat-topped layer across the top of the old railway bridge beneath which we had just walked.
From Slack Lane, we returned home, walking around the Wildlife Trust's farmland and getting a good view of Shipley Hill in the sunshine. Our long shadows in this picture, indicative of the very low sun now that we have reached December.
Time for home and a hot coffee I think....!
