Cycling round Rutland Water

Wednesday 27 February 2019.
A fifteen mile trip with Harry,  around the outer edge of the reservoir, with a bit of road cycling at the end. 
Wonderful views of the lake, swans and ducks in evidence and plenty of sheep, including some black Hebridean ones. 

We paused to look inside the little church at Egleton, where the snowdrops are almost over, being replaced by daffodils. Cyclamen inside caught the light streaming through the coloured glass windows.

A royal coat of arms - possibly of George III

One of the old pew ends saved when the pews were renewed.
I took the road back from Manton, while Harry took the longer lakeside route.

There's always plenty to see around Rutland Water. I quite like the photo of me, too!
