I went for an adventure this afternoon in the hitherto unexplored region north west of Reading. Started in the pleasant village of Streatley and headed in the general direction of Swindon along the “ridgeway” national trail. At first it was a little dull and plodding, the only interesting site being this memorial to a solider […]

Went for a really long walk last Monday where I discovered the previously discussed tank-tractor. On the way back to Henley there was a really awesome sunset and I managed to take some nice photos with the trees silhouetted against the dramatic clouds.

The subsequent attempt to go for a wander along the beach was quickly abandoned due to rain, wind, and freezing cold. Nevermind. On the way […]
Bet it costs a fortune to heat. Pleasant woodland scene of the week; near Stonor, Oxfordshire.
