Sheep by the frozen Mole, Norbury Park
Sheep by the frozen Mole, Norbury Park
I saw very few sheep around Norbury Park on this bitterly cold day. These two trotted off as I approached, and huddled in the shelter of a thicket. This loop of old river-bed was once the course of the River Mole - the frozen body of water is an abandoned meander, a feature not as often seen on Geograph as might be expected. 'Abandoned' isn't quite the right word - left alone, I don't think the river would have left its old bed; most likely it was evicted by men with shovels, at some time in the last two hundred years.

The present course of the River Mole lies behind the camera, and the water was flowing fairly fast, following recent snow.
