Sunday Picture Post: Burlingham Woods

31st October dawned misty but with a promise of sun. So, early bus out to Acle, and from Acle via tight lanes and farm-tracks to Burlingham. These photos are from the first part of the walk. Enjoy

The lane leads us between ploughed and sown fields

The lane widens as it becomes a farm-track

A small plantation of mostly native fruit trees has been planted over recent years…and a seat added for the walker’s enjoyment (but perhaps not today!)

At the open centre of the plantation knapweed and teasel vie for the sun’s attention. Guess the teasel wins!

The plantation is screened by birch…

And here we must skirt a field

And another farm-track

Love how the sun defines those lines…

Finally, our shoes muddy, we arrive at the woods

The painted posts are what remains of a pre-Covid project by the local schools and various youth groups to make the “Burlingham Henge”! They ring around that mighty oak. A shame the sun isn’t reaching here.

And here we leave the walk. To be continued next week. Hope you enjoyed.
