Whether by choice or chance you’re here.  Welcome ! Thank you for visiting this site.

I hope I can persuade you to look around for a while. If you’re a regular visitor, welcome back. You’ll notice I’ve made a few changes for this summer season.

About me                                                                                                                                                     As you will soon see I’m a lover of nature in the English countryside, the four seasons, plants and gardens, birds, poetry, classical music and above all my Christian faith. I’m married to Wendy and we are now retired and live in this village in West Sussex. We have four grandchildren.

Where is this blog going?                                                                                                                   Now summer has come it’s time to get out-and-about in the lovely English countryside. Join me as my blog follows quiet country lanes, well trodden paths across the fields, through villages, into the woods, and over the hills.  On the journey we will also visit several places of historic interest.

I would value not just your company but also your comments as we walk together.

Are your walking shoes ready? Then lets get going.
