Coronation Walk

Just before Christmas I noticed that the missing fallen lintels at my local ‘Woodhenge’ had been replaced. After seeing them my intention was to walk to them to provide a photo update.

Christmas was busy and in January lethargy set in, it was lovely and cozy at home and so easy to curl up with a book when I wasn’t taking my mum to  (suddenly more frequent) medical appointments.

Today the sun put its hat on beckoning me to go out for a walk! How could I resist…

I made the walk up as I went along so that I could end the walk by visiting Woodhenge. My walk took me through the hospital grounds to avoid the busy traffic and potential mud on the way to the Silkin Way and Apley Woods beyond. My choice turned out to be a mistake, there were more cars in the hospital than there were on the road!

The rest of my walk was uplifting apart from one tiny incident when a former colleague blanked me (not for the first time) as I smiled and said hello as we passed each other.

My arrival at the fully restored Woodhenge didn’t disappoint and I can see that in a few years’ time it will weather down to its former glory ;-)

Almost There

Quaint Legacy



PS: I need to explore the newly created Coronation Walks. Todays walk kept crisscrossing one of the routes.

    I love winter walks but have been hibernating a lot this January. I did a medication last night that detailed how important hibernation and down time is for humans. I like the Woodhenge a lot! Good luck with your 1000 miles

      I have been hibernating for at least 6 months. That is a bit too much hibernating, I need to sort myself out!

      Woodhenge is a lovely little folly/sculpture near to where I live :-)

      The local team of walkers that created the T50 trail have expanded the route to provide some more walking trails. Although all the walks are mapped out the fine detail with the history isn’t completed for all of the routes yet.

      The beauty of these is that they are all circular walks and with a bit of imaginiation you can link one or more of them together to create a longer walk.

      I am looking forward to the booklet when it is published but I intend to do some of the walks before it does.
