Concluding the photos from my leisurely ramble around the neighbouring village. I must admit that till I posted these photos I'd never fully appreciated the scenery just a couple of miles down the road.
The old watermill that was powered by the little River Shep
Docwra's Manor which has a fine old-fashioned garden
The Crossing House, which used to house the man
who operated the gates where the railway crosses the road,
also has a garden which is usually opened to the public.
A view along High Street
Farm buildings on approach to Manor Farm
Manx Loaghtan sheep on the nature reserve
The old farmhouse in Angle Lane.
Arriving home and turning on the radio to hear what's happening in the wider world it seems that we all need to learn how to get along with our neighbours and appreciate them more. Lets hear from Nina Simone...
Thank you, Dr Simone.
