|Sunny with a heavy frost
|Recently a local footpath had been redirected so I decided to explore its route today. Instead of having to walk across private land following a permitted footpath, the route now skirts around the property. The newly installed kissing gate and metal gate are now used instead of having to navigate a steep ladder stile and a dilapidated step stile. Further along the route another kissing gate has replaced a very tricky step stile and further gates have been replaced by new ones.
The new gate leads into a reasonably dry field . . .
where it looks like the heavy frost is causing a rising mist on the reservoirs . . .
and another new gate provides access to the path across to . . .
the caravan park . . .
which is much easier than the previous one
The path through the woodland leads to . . .
more new gates . . .
which can be admired from the nearby seat . . .
good to see a wooden gate . . .
though the other two are metal!
A last view of the reservoirs . . .
before heading into the park and yet another view of Parlick Pike across frost covered fields
