We got a bit wet - and not because of my usual paddling in the Windfall Stream.
It poured with rain.
The Windfall is several little streams at the moment - and a raging torrent in places. Our one waterfall is now at least four!
We recently hired a professional woodsman to come and clear all the brambles and dead wood and to make the whole area generally 'walk-able'.... thank you Chris!
So here's the result - enjoy the virtual walk!
(some of the photos are a bit murky - that's because of the rain!)

|and the violets|
|Bottom Field Boundary|
|looking over our boundary - note the nice natural log seat|
|a bit of a muddy tributary!|
|through the woods - |
notice the new easy access through the bank
|Baz has found something interesting|
|Mum's Bridge |
(or the Bridge That Mum Built!)
|The Windfall - note the now cleared bank.|
|The waterfall in full spate|

|Upper reaches of the Windfall|
|loads of primroses are sprouting up now the bramble is cleared|
|looking back down through op Wood|
|and at Walk's End .... the rain stops!|
|note the wet knees!|
