You might remember these images from the ramblechat but I include them here as a fixed document of a most-excellent afternoon out walking with pal Gerv.

We two met at Gerv's childhood home - now inherited - and traipsed through the fields at the end of the road and down to the old trackbed of the Wye Valley railway line. Just a couple of 100 yards from where'd I'd explored the previously-closed tunnel years passed, it's all opened up and re-surfaced and available for exploring!

The pitch was melting on the piles of discarded sleeper and track, great door-stops of iron tempted free retrieval and - after four hours - we were back up-and-away from the line and staring over the River Severn in a late afternoon haze: only a 10 mile round trip but, taken at a sedate and genial pace, it provided an utterly splendid four hours of restorative, physical and mental therapy!
