The gloom starts to lift, Sowe Valley footpath, Walsgrave, east Coventry
Hoar frost whitens the tall vegetation of the floodmeadow. The chosen route of the path appears to have required the blackthorn thickets along the riverbank (out of view, right) to be cut back. Blackthorn doesn't seem particularly fussy about where it grows but here, as at Willenhall downstream, the thickets flourish along the river: SP3677 : Blackthorn and hawthorn by the River Sowe south of the Alan Higgs Centre, Coventry and SP3576 : Downstream on the River Sowe past Willenhall, southeast Coventry.
Sowe Valley, Coventry
The River Sowe rises in Bedworth, flowing south towards Coventry; it winds through the city's eastern suburbs before joining the Warwickshire Avon near Stoneleigh. The Sowe Valley Footpath follows the river for over eight miles, mostly through naturalistic green spaces. LinkExternal link
