Kington sunshine walks

January 2022

A rather dull 2 January

  The starting point, the back of the house and garden.

This is the first of my monthly sunshine walk posts and I am afraid that it is going to repeat some of the pics you have already seen but will include lots of new ones. The pics were all taken over several days in January and one might wonder where the sun has gone in some of them.

01570.JPG
  Looking back. I wonder why this is called Bradnor View.

  This brings us out at the other end of the square we saw earlier.

It was a bit brighter later in the month AND I cleaned the camera lens
This time we started with a diversion up Husseys Lane off Church Street just before we reach The Square

A few days later and the plan is to finish off the tramway along the Back Brook. This bit of the route is far too gloomy on a dull day
