Here are some pictures from my day:


The start of the log pile.


Our boat across the field with its own wind turbine.


Me chasing something down the first green lane of our afternoon walk.


Neil being intrepid.


No access to old pit head.


Karen being intrepid.


Sign prepared by local primary school about the abandoned railway line.  The Paddy line used to take coal from the pits to the canal wharf in Atherstone.  The coal was then unloaded into the canal freight boats.


Me looking for squirrels on the route of the old Paddy line.


Neil got excited as he found two green lanes, an abandoned railway line and then three sleepers!  Here is one of the sleepers.


Neil also got excited about this abandoned childrens' playground.  He posted the picture on the Abandoned Uncovered Facebook group and received dozens of comments.



And finally, the ornate footbridge with nowhere to put your feet.
