Beyond The Lowe
Date 4/9/2013  
Staring Point White Coppice Nursery (SD617191)    
Distance 3 miles    


As seems to be the case this summer, it was a nice sunny evening as we set off from the Nursery School to No 6 Lodge. This walk is along lesser trodden paths around Coppice. Crossing the embankment, we turned left at its end before doglegging back across a footpath over The Lowe. Going over another stile a concreted track is reached. At what is marked on the map as Tootal's Farm we turned left and followed a path to another dwelling. Here again we turned left and followed a path which led us back to the concreted track. We followed this all the way down to the ford at White Coppice

Just after passing Tootal's this peacock was on the path. Luckily the dogs were on their leads




There was a superb sunset tonight

These two youngsters were not for budging!
