SUMMER

 

 

 

 

Near Farrington Gurney

 

 

In the Domesday book, the village was known as Ferentone. The second part of the name is believed to come from the Gournays, its ancient possessors, including Robert de Gournay in 1225. When Sir Thomas de Gournay was implicated in the murder of Edward II at Berkeley Castle, his estates were confiscated; Farrington was later annexed to the Duchy of Cornwall.

All good, but especially the foreground!
Chris: Taken in June when everything was fresh and still growing Ray
Jolie vue bucolique.
Chris: Yes indeed Martine, out in the countryside
How very lovely!
Chris: A quiet off the road location Elizabeth
A pleasant scene. We are supposed to be taking the kids to one of these re-enactment things today.......I don't like the look of the forecast though!
Chris: Well all I can say is hereabouts the weather is at present calm but damp

I advise you to take a large scale OS map when you go for a walk... It will save you from getting lost.
Chris: Not only do I do that but I take a companion with me, one of several, who has a perfect sense of direction..
More of our beautiful countryside.
Chris: Lovely isn't it
the first thing that struck me about this place is that one square meter of this land contains probably several times the biodiversity when compared to that of a large, sprawling lawn but curated by man.
Chris: Yes indeed, thank you Ayush

Who would have thought that? So another part fo Prince Charles' empire.
Chris: A mere fragment of a corner..
So - a bit of Charles's empire?
Chris: A micro dot Tom..
This could be here, Chris. My neighbourhood even.
Just looking at this tranquil scene makes me want to put on hiking boots and walk across the fields into the far distance, Chris, but I suspect I might be accused of trespassing.
