Day 8 – 30 Days Wild

A Tale of Discovery

#30DaysWild

Yesterday was a very long day…  The Beach Clean only lasted two minutes, but there was the early start, the traveling and finding somewhere with WiFi (the connection was awfully slow) not far from the beach – so I could finish yesterday’s blog and do a blog for that day – to share what I had done before the journey back home.  Getting to grips with my friend Gary’s video editing software and waiting for the video to upload to YouTube was very time consuming.  We both got home very late!

More positively; this morning I caught up on Countryfile!  Which funnily enough was in Somerset for yesterday’s episode!  I decided in the afternoon I would venture a little into the South Birmingham/North Worcestershire countryside (which I grew up next door to) 🙂  I came across three discoveries, one more exciting than the other!

1. An old brick bridge that is part of a Public Footpath – which leads from suburban greenspace into the countryside – has been cleared underneath, revealing it fully and making it a lot more accessible to walk under.  The tree lined path that leads away below the bridge had been tidied as well!

2. Two flights of steps have been created/installed!  On either side of Princess Diana Way – a short walk down from the bridge.  You walk up into a meadow (unfortunately not pictured below) with the Farmer’s field going round it.

I followed the steps leading up the other side, to pass over the old bridge and come back on myself – to follow another Public Footpath which leads you deaper into the countryside, through an underpass to the other side of the M5 Motorway.  I took a few snaps before that.

3. I’m a fair distance away from the bridge now on the other side of the M5, I’ve just had a brief explore of Doctor’s Coppice and have come back into the meadow I’ve just walked across.  The pictures and captions below will end the tale 😉
