Some of the lovely hips, hawes, sloes, brambles and berries we saw on our walk this morning
Aren't they all such wonderful, rich and glossy colours?
We went on one of our favourite walks this morning at Consall Nature Park. We follow the white route through the woods as it climbs up and up through the trees
It was quite cool this morning but it wasn't long before the sun began to filter through the trees
My knees were beginning to protest as we climbed higher and higher to find our favourite seat
Which has the most spectacular view across the valley
After a short rest and a cup of coffee from the flask it was times to descend via the purple route down over the river and railway line to the canal.
As we walked along the canal the steam train from the Churnet Valley railway passed us by
After a further walk up a country lane we re-joined the white route and wandered past the fishing lakes
on our way back to the car.
We'd been walking for about two and half hours but it didn't seem like it; time passes quickly when you are having fun!
