Pick of the Peak
Pick of the Peak
This takes me back to my Gloucestershire years and what I enjoyed so much working with the Cotswolds Voluntary Wardens. The tasks were varied farm open days, public guided walks, work parties, meetings and socials and including, as in this case, the occasional litter sweep. There was and is really no need for dumping rubbish in the countryside on these events sometimes some remarkable things were found. This was taken to the south of the Coaley Peak picnic site, at the junction of the B4066 Dursley Stroud Road where it meets the minor road passing the south-western edge of Nympsfield SO 8000 once Nymphsfield which goes on to join the B4058 Nailsworth Wotton under Edge road. Even after 14 years away from Gloucestershire the memories and thoughts of how life might have turned out are still very sharp and clear. Time taken not available.
