This walk: 2012-8-15. Bellever Forest, picnic.
There were no photos taken on the actual walk today, because the rain was so heavy at the start that the camera was returned to the car, along with the GPS unit that got soaked, before we set off; although it did stop raining before the end of the walk. However, here are a few memories of the day .....
Under the gazebo, there she be ......
"She was a vixen when she went to school and though she be but little, she is fierce." - said by Helena about Hermia, in A Midsummer Night's Dream, William Shakespeare, Act 3, Scene 2.
5th Anniversary Cake, bearing the now-obligatory embarrassing photograph!
A certain guide in a Stan Laurel pose under a helpful sign post!
Trying to collapse a gazebo for we shorter people .....
..... who were then clearly expected at the Plume of Feathers pub afterwards.
Is that really two red telephone boxes - perhaps for very local calls?!

This walk was reached by taking the road south from Postbridge, to Bellever, turning left and then right into the forest to the P symbol on the map (parking fee: £2 for over two hours, although be warned, the machine does not always work, sometimes it will swallow a £1 coin and then reject all others, issuing no ticket - this happened to two of us today).
Distance - 3.73 km / 2.32 miles
