The Last One
After a failed attempt the previous week due to a flat battery on my camera I set out for Buscot again only this time with a full battery and a back up camera checked before the journey. I was impressed by the village the previous week so took a few photos before setting off on my trek Photo Photo. It was then off towards the lock for some photos of the weir pool Photo before heading off to the Church of St Johnís which was along a rather overgrown footpath...

St George's Church Kelmscott
Kelmscott is a place I had seen on the map and heard about from a friend and also in the middle of a walk I needed to do to log the remaining pillboxes along the Thames so after finally working out how to visit them I set out. The plan was to do my last section in two halves due to not having a partner to help out in the logistics (ie car both ends), it turned out to be the right way. The first part was to walk towards Radcot, then in a couple of weeks go towards Lechlade. Kelmscott is a...

First of the narrowboats
My travels of late have not been up to much and an update from Newbury parkway Photo Photo along with a short trip along the Upton cutting Photo Photo and some local photos Photo Photo Photo near me only meant that I should get out again. Sunday proved nice and sunny if with a hint of cold in the air. Time for another quick walk along the river Kennet. My next walk would take from Woolhampton for a couple of miles to Migeham Lock and...

Lock number 94
I think it is time I wrote another Blog being as I have not written anything since June. Mind you things have not been easy as we have been getting some building work done round the house so my little trips have been curtailed to a certain extent. That is not to say I have stopped contributing just not quite so many. Up to when the work started I had 500+ in backlog to work with now Iím down to going out on a weekend to get a couple of hundred. A lot of the photos I have taken are from round...

Duck at  the lockgates
Iím well overdue for another blog but other things and Bank holidays have taken over and my backlog of photos just got bigger. I decided to go back to the river Kennet and find a few more pillboxes before the spring growth finally put pay to my treks to look for them. On the last walk Iíd got as far as Towney Bridge but had checked out the next area I wanted to visit which was Aldermaston Wharf Photo. I thought I had found a good place to park but found the place packed so went to...

A Walk along the Kennet

Tree in front
Time I think for another blog entry and as usual a few weeks after I did the walk. My quest to find more pillboxes to go in my log took me back to the River Kennet which is more of a canal that river. So far I had managed to collect photos and or visit pillboxes from Burghfield Mill down to Sulhamsted lock. This time I started from Tyle Mill as there was a carpark nearby but I was rather shocked to find it was quite full at the time of morning I arrived though I did manage to squeeze in...
