We marked the passing of the years this week and, by way of forgetting, we drove out to Nuffield Place, just outside Nettleden. National Trust card in hand, I confidently parked up, knowing that, once again, I’d saved some money…but not much and certainly not enough!
In spite of the dull weather, today’s walk was enjoyable. Quiet lanes, views over the Thames Valley and South Oxfordshire and a descent from the Ridgeway along Grim’s Ditch. If I’m feeling old this particular earthworking is over 2400 years old.
It’s about time we had some good weather at the weekend! For the last few weeks grey and overcast has been the order of the day. In a few weeks these woods will be full of bluebells and that should brighten things up. We make a mental note to make sure we’re back for the display.
