Monkton Farleigh – 12.11.17

Monkton Farleigh – a repeat of the 2016 Spring Walk here It’s interesting to note that the pub mentioned in the previous post has changed – read all about it here

This walk, starting from Monkton Farleigh, was a repeat of that done on 20 March 2016 so much of the detail remains the same. It was however good to see the autumn scenery rather than the spring version. Many of the trees still had their autumn leaves but those which didn’t revealed their structure against the clear blue sky. One bit of excitement was entering a field of cows and calves and then realising the bull was close to the path. Fortunately he seemed more interested in chewing the cud than attacking an innocent group of walkers.

Even the mud looks pretty at this time of year

Much of this walk is on the Palladian Way

This big black bull was standing right next to our path, his ladies and babies behind him. He didn’t move at all apart from his eyes making sure we all behaved ourselves as we crossed his field!
