Happy New Year from Bath Ramblings

This walk starts and ends at Bathford Church
Walking up the hill towards Browne’s Folly
Sunshine breaking through over the hills
A new and exciting feature of this walk is the lovely friendly goats
A very handsome pheasant
A flock of unusual black horned sheep
Don’t take our word for it but apparently this fungus makes a lovely soup
the lightning struck tree has deteriorated since we saw it in 2018 – compare here

Browne’s Folly Revisited – 7.1.18

A cold but very sunny morning made the ideal conditions for this walk. Starting from Bathford, a steep climb led through woods to Browne’s Folly before descending through the reserve and heading back to Bathford. A slight variation in the route from the previous walk here avoided the very muddy bridleway and was a pleasant, shorter path. The clear skies gave excellent views.

The map below shows today’s route in blue including the shortcut – the extra red bit is the part of the original route that can be circumvented if the path is particularly muddy.  You can see details of the last time we did this walk here.
