Trees in the mist

Beech woodland in West Sussex

Sussex Beeches Last week I took an early morning ride along The South Downs Way and then to the oil fields in Singleton forest. If you didn't know where to look you'd never know that this area is one of the UK's leading onshore oil wells. Mind you, there's not a lot to see! On… Continue reading Trees in the mist

And the other eerie thing is the silence. Even the birds fall… Continue reading Frensham Little Pond

Big grey field

Grey field on The South Downs

Huge fields were ploughed out of the chalky ground for cereal production; wheat and barley for food and animal feed, home grown rather than having to rely on imports from abroad. It's the end of April and at this… Continue reading Big grey field
