Monday 09 January 2017, 10 am. With Maureen. Grey, drizzly - what a contrast to last Thursday!
An unpromising look to the weather, with drizzle and showers forecast, followed by heavier rain.
Warm though, and not a lot of wind.
|The pub and church clearly have a close relationship in Old.|
This rural/agricultural area gets very muddy after a spell of wet weather, and the main downside was mud. Yes, we've tackled worse, but when combined with grey skies and drizzle blurred views, it's not a lot of fun. When the rain showed no sign of stopping, we cut the walk short, and turned left along Mill Road, which took us back to Old.
The church porch offered a space for us to have a hot drink and a scone, and a couple with the keys showed us the interior - including the kneelers embroidered as a millennium project, most of which include a letter hidden inside, telling the story of why each person chose their particular design, often in memory of a family member or friend.
