Rain rain, Here to Stay…..

Having had only half an inch of rain between mid February and the end of April, the weather seems to have turned rather more inclement and prone to precipitation !

May is usually our most stable month of the year and this year the stability appears to be around RAIN!

Still…..we needed the water badly for crops and gardens.

Mostly around the Slad Valley and Stroud in the Cotswolds

Beautiful vistas around the Slad Valley and Stroud.

Poem “April Rise” by local poet and historian, Laurie Lee, whose poetry was inspired by the spectacular Cotswold valley that he lived in.

I love the paths lined with bluebells and the yellow fields of rape seed.

May Day + 1 – new vistas from my Cotswold walk and a trip to Bath for a covid shot…..

Monday, 3rd May 2021

Today, Sunday 2nd May I had a shorter walk than normal as I had an appointment with a needle at Bath Racecourse for my second covid jab.

The yellow flower is Oil Seed Rape or Canola…..it looks beautiful – block yellow in our May-time fields.

The trip to Bath ended up as a disappointment.

Roman remains in Easton Grey and on The Fosse Way then to Foxley Church in Wiltshire on the Edge of The Cotswolds

Originally I intended this to be a short video about the hamlet of Easton Grey but knowing that once I start on these video I just can’t stop it went on to The Fosse Way, Foxley Church and Malmesbury following The River Avon.

Wiltshire on the Edge of The Cotswolds but is not a Cotswold County. Nevertheless, Malmesbury is as perfect an example of a Cotswold town that I know of…..even though it is not strictly in “The Cotswolds”.

Easton Grey and the stretch of Fosse Way that I walked in this video are just 5 miles from my home likewise as is Foxley and Malmesbury.

Easton Grey was an important crossing point of the upper reaches of the Sherston River Avon stretching back to Roman times and probably before so this area is very historic.
