The so-called ‘vintage sale’ proved to be a load of tat but the building was great. White-washed walls juxtaposed with hanging fabrics and trailing wires while leftover paraphernalia provided props for hanging clothes.
For a change, we crossed the bridge and trod the path on the other side. Now the reflections in the water became framed by structural plants reaching optimistically sky-ward
We were forced to turn left near the canal overflow, where the rippling water cascaded down into the river.
Further up, we examined old ruined buildings and an old tree-lined road.
We perused the renovated exterior and the backyard, now converted into ‘luxury holiday cottages’.
We continued on the road. Reaching the train station, we crossed back over the river.
I spotted a heron on the weir – my efforts to capture it on camera were dire. At Mayroyd we bypassed the canal up to Station Road. I saw a huge squirrel dashing down a tree but it was too fast to photograph.
A day for bad wildlife photography obviously!
