Farlington Marshes

A few weeks ago we had a late burst of summer heat (rather the opposite of the chilly frost bitten mornings of this past week) and Sunday Pirate, Disastrophe and I  went for a wonder around Farlington Marshes. The views are great and it was handy having Mark around to fill us in on some of the local history (some of the mini lakes were formed by bombs); he makes an awesome guide. 

A walk around the main section doesn't take long and is easily accessible. As the area attracts lots of rare birds dogs aren't allowed off the lead but we did bump into a stray horse that must have escaped from a near by field!

Now Autumn is here in full I'm looking forward to lots of crisp country walks wrapped up in hats and scarfs :)
