photoblog image THE CHEW AT WOOLLARD

THE CHEW AT WOOLLARD

 

 

 

Woollard had a medieval bridge with three pointed arches and double arch-ribs. This was rebuilt following the substantial damage caused by the floods of 1968.

It is close to the route of the ancient Wansdyke, and lies on the Monarch's Way long-distance footpath.

Woollard is also a traditional surname, having relations in the farming land of Saffron Walden and Suffolk.

Woollard is a small village on the River Chew in the Chew Valley in England. It is in the District of Bath and North East Somerset and the ceremonial county of Somerset, and is 7 miles (11 km) from Bristol, 9 miles (14 km) from Bath, and 4 miles (6.4 km) from Keynsham.

The special architectural and historic interest of Woollard was recognised by its designation as a Conservation Area on 25 July 1990

It does look very attractive, especially at this time of year, Chris
Chris: Thank you Lisl, I'm sure you know this location yourself

The pop of red is the lucky nugget
Chris: Quite so Comrade, it took me a long time to paint it before I could take a satisfactory image.

The red is the eye- catchrt - a lovely autumnal day and a bench for resting!
Chris: I think I was lucky with the red, it leads the eye into the picture
beautiful light here, love the rays filtering through the leaves
Chris: Thank you kindly Ayush

A delightful scene. It;s odd how that tree has lost most of its leaves yet others still look like it's mid-summer. Oh look.. a bench....
Chris: Trees are like people, some retain their foliage much longer than do others..
What were you saying about excitement?
Chris: This Mottykins is about as exciting a thing as you will see all day today!
A nice jigsaw puzzle picture
Chris: Yes - I expect you're puzzling as to why I even bothered to post it..
I think this is the first shot of autumn that I have seen of England. Very pretty! I like that you have described a bridge that we can not see.
Chris: Yes - I was standing on the bridge

A lovely picture Chris.

Reading through the information and seeing Keynsham reminded me of Radio Luxembourg listening many years ago - one of their adverts always spelled out K E Y N S H A M
Chris: Hahaha - you are revealing your vintage Anne!
That's a blazing maple I guess in the background!
Chris: Or an acer, that sort of thing anyway
A very pretty spot Chris, in the autumn sunshine. Lovely shot
Chris: If the sun is in the right place it's the perfect time of year for these sorts of shots Janet
What a delightful scene, not a place I have heard of, although I am very familiar with the Saffron Walden mentioned in your notes, I grew up not that many miles away from there.
Chris: Thank you Brian

I am guessing the bridge has gone home for a little snooze, Chris.


Lovely chocciebox image of the Will Phillips oevre.
Chris: I should have said I was standing on the bridge to take the picture, blame it on old age and the effects of having to compete with the Phillips twiddling tornado (no relation)
The Autumn colors are captured beautifully here, Chris! Nice!!!
Chris: Thank you kindly Elizabeth
