Walking in January

I have started and ended January with the same walk. My New Year's Day walk with one group of friends can be seen here. It was an ideal walk for the time of year being mainly on dry paths. Yesterday at nearly the end of the month I repeated the walk with my walk and talk group.
The day was dry and not as windy as forecasted. 
Part of the walk is around Cheddar (also known as Axbridge) reservoir. When you start to walk around the reservoir it seems a long way. There was a lot of debate as to how far it is. 

 It was much quieter this time with no boats and few walkers. 

The ducks and waterfowl had the water to themselves.

On our return we stopped in Axbridge for a bite to eat. This lovely town was an ideal place to stop. The Lamb Inn which is a Butcombe Ale Inn was welcoming and served a tasty lunch before we walked the last stretch along the Strawberry line back to the cars.

I was ready for a quiet evening when I got home having had an early start at 6am that morning to help unload our new batch of 16 thousand hens before starting out for my walk!


  1. What a wonderful way to start and end the month! 16,000 hens---really beyond my comprehension. My grandfather raised chickens--not even in the hundreds I would guess.

  2. Looks a great walk and weather looks better than I had thought
