Sunday Picture Post: Weavers Way and the Mills

Second stage of walk on 26th August 2022.

Emerging from Damgate Carr the sun seems shocking and all seems open. The path here is lined with hemlock. Do not touch. Poisonous. It grow to 8ft.

Hemlock: 26th Aug 2022 

We pass Old Mother Willow…

Where we disturb two deer…. I swing round, camera raised, point, click, no time to focus. I’m surprised I got this

The next few 500 yards or so is between reeds. Love reeds this time of year. They display so many colours

And it’s out into the pastures., and back to the water..

Our pasture is shared…

And over a stile and onto a track. By now that shade is most welcome…

This is arable land with fields that roll gently up and away from us

We leave Weavers Way to  go instead to Tunstall Mills. Until these mills were built (early C19th) all these grazing marshes were water-logged swamps for half the year.  Now electric pumps keep them dry, channeling the water into drains

And here is the first mill, barely visible. I visited here in 2017. For  info on the mills and clearer photos, see HERE

This is the Black Mill, the older of the two. They grow good ivy around here!

26th Aug 2022 

This second mill was built early C20th. This is as close as I could get…an overgrowth of nettles deterred me!

And so to return to Acle to catch a bus home

Hope you enjoyed. We certainly did. Photos of details on Tuesday. See you then.

    Such a lovely walk! It’s amazing how ivy can completely take over a building like that. I absolutely love reeds at this time of year. When I worked at a golf club, the drive in was all along a “wall” of them, so many colours and impossible to photograph because you cannot stop on that highway…
