Newbold Comyn



Newbold Comyn is our preferred area for our walks at the moment. A few yards on this road,




and it's straight into this path.

Newbold Comyn is a nature reserve of over 100 acres of plantation, woodland, grassland, ponds, marsh and wetland, including 3 km of river.




The path leads to this meadow




which is surrounded by trees




and which leads to the river.







The path by the river is not very long,







and at times we have to abandon it due to fallen trees or pockets of deep mud




but, no worries, this second meadow compensates



back on the river path and we come across this interesting construction




looking closer. This intrigues us. It's at the back of the allotments and we wonder what it is.




BlackTeaOneSugar.co.uk says the sign. I googled it when we got home and it's a company specialising in bespoke furniture, joinery and outdoor spaces. Who would have known?





It's a beautiful part of the river






Another detour and we reach yet another meadow




this one, full of buttercups




at the end of which, is a path that leads to




the woods.




It's wonderful here




a lot of work is being carried out to keep the woods in a good condition













It's very quiet, except for birdsong




wildflowers on the edge of the path


















We come to the end of the woods wich lead to Hay Meadow. This however, will have to wait for another time, another walk. We retrace our steps through the woods




but rather than following the river we take another route








Campion Hills in the distance




over this little bridge




it's glorious









and head back home.
