Dunkerton – 21.8.16

August 21, 2016 at 2:31 pm

An approximately 5 mile walk starting and ending near Odd Down Park-and-Ride.  This walk started from Odd Down Football Club on a chilly August morning. After a short walk along Combe Hay Lane the tarmac was left behind for fields, woodland and brook side paths down to Dunkerton and back through Combe Hay. Although it was August there was still a surprising variety of wild flowers and the blackberries and sloes were ripening well. A varied walk which at times gave stunning views followed by tree lined paths in total shade.
(the walk does start and end at the same place – the football club carpark – I just forgot to set the tracker going straight away!)

What a difference a morning makes – this was the sky at the beginning of the walk ….


… and this was at the end 🙂


A field of shiny black cows (sorry about the one in the middle – no manners!)


Signs of autumn abundance are becoming abundant


Golden barley (wheat/corn?)


a spooky little tunnel (torches advised)


The walk starts nicely downhill for quite a way – you pay for it near the end with this climb back up.
