The red lights were still lit for the rivers Soar and Trent.
Our walk took us through some open countryside.
At one point I slipped off a little bridge and got both feet soaking wet. It didn’t help with the fact that it was very cold and windy. The wind had freshky felled a tree across a stile.
We walked along the river Derwent for a while and that was flowing strongly as well.
Buddy walks across any sort of bridge now – quite the opposite to how he was when we first got him.
The sheep on one farm we walked across seemed particularly woolly.
There are some lovely old barns around Shardlow but we have no idea what the scalloped shaped wall thing is on the left. Do you know?
The other thing about Shardlow is the number of buildings with semicircular windows. We have asked around but no one seems to know their purpose. Do you have any ideas?
