Anyone who has visited me in Dorchester, is likely to be familiar with this walk. It’s one that we take regularly owing to the proximity to our house. Only a little way down the hill lies the River Frome, the starting point for a circular walk.
Further along we come to the Blue Bridge, a landmark that can be seen from our bedroom window, and suitably assigned a plaque. Over on the river bank, children fish for tiddlers.
Walking through the fields we meet the animals: cows taking to the shade and sheep freshly sheared.
Where the path turns we head back towards the town and make a little detour.
We browse the old and the refurbished. We’re not quite sure what to make of this chair. I think it might be a rocket to reach outer space but in disguise.
Then there’s a strange looking duck swimming back towards our house. (At least this one has not found a home in our pond).
We walk by the allotments and admire the produce.
Only a little way further and we’re back at home.
Anyone fancy a walk through the fields?
