Thoresby

#1

we had a walk around the Thoresby estate this morning, at the Perlthorpe village side,
an area we have not been to before, and a lovely area it is too, very picturesque :)

we saw some of that Mistletoe in the tree tops

with lots of lambs in the fields, many sets of twins among them too,

but my favourite part was this long avenue of what i now know are Wellingtonia trees, very tall and straight, with a thick, soft corky feeling bark,
it was a bit murky and misty this morning, the photo does not do them justice i feel, so i think they would have looked better in this afternoons sunshine :roll: but still a lovely sight :)

and this primula type of flower, which I first thought might be something interesting, until I realised it was recently planted, probably as some sort of memorial, going on the placement of those two stones close to it. and not a wild flower at all :oops:

this is the Church at Perlthorpe, taken from various points on our walk this morning,
the view of which kept changing with the rolling nature of the fields, giving different glimpses of it over the fields,

I must admit that I've never seen that avenue of wellingtonias, despite having visited Thoresby on numerous occasions,
it looks worth a vist in the future i think :D

I don't think that I have seen those wellingtonias either :oops: and I've been to Thoresby many times too,
must have a wander around the Perlthorpe end next time I go,

the walk starts at the side of the village hall, marked by a signpost which says "woodland walk 1.5 miles"
crosses the field (full of sheep ) across a track and comes out near the church again in an almost circular route,
so its pretty easy to find :)
