The spring was definitely looking wintery. The solid wall of green, formed by the huge horse chestnuts edging the banks of the spring, had gone. Their leaves were dropped, leaving the trees looking stark and bare.
Down in the bottom of the spring, the massive trees looked amazing. Hanging onto the edge of the bank, they loom over you, seeming so much taller than when they're in leaf. They make it feel so atmospheric and such a special place.
The spring was dry, although the dog could be relied on to find the only muddy puddle in the place!
I explored the base of the spring and found a few treasures hiding away ...
|There were a few slugs out and about|
|Some of the patterns in the bark were really beautiful|
|Culverton, with Bledlow Ridge (and Yoesden Bank) in the distance, on one side|
|Oakley Hill to the other side|
