Kinver Edge

Eleven miles south west of Dudley in the West Midlands is the pretty village of Kinver. Kinver Edge is a National Trust property that lies just outside the village. The property consists of extensive parkland and woods, and includes an iron age hill fort and the Rock Houses.

Fortified, we went to explore the woods.

Some of the paths are very steep but the woods are well worth a walk. It was early October and the trees were just beginning to change colour. There were still some wild flowers to see.

One of the features of Kinver Edge is “Nanny’s Cave” reputed to have once been the home of a hermit.

It’s a bit of a climb to get into but is full of interesting shapes.

St. Audries Bay

Just three miles west of Watchet in Somerset, is St. Audries Bay waterfall.

The waterfall flows from a cliff of Triassic Mudstone and the beach consists of curved and shelving Mudstone steps.

It’s a beautiful area and well worth exploring.

Gloucestershire Weekend

I recently spent a weekend near Harescombe in Gloucestershire.

Harescombe has an architecturally quirky village church which…

We also walked down to the River Severn at Arlingham.
