  1. Thanks for sharing, Lynette. This track runs along a narrow dell with the brook flowing way down the slope. It’s not a well-used trail, and one of our favourites. It eventually leads to a wider track that is known locally as the Dark Lane, which used to serve a coal mine last century. You’d never know now, though; no cart or truck could negotiate along the space with so many trees growing. And it’s always so peaceful.

    1. I am always amazed at how quickly nature can reclaim its space if given half a chance. Gives me hope that we haven’t totally messed everything up, but maybe I’m just trying to convince myself …

      1. Much of the valley in which we live, Lynette, was industialised for a couple of centuries, with coal mines, quarries, iron mines and iron works. Our local historical society allowed me to use some of the pictures they have when I set up a website for a local charity I act as a trusteee for. And out own home is built on what was once a pile of mininng and quarry waste.
        You’d never know any of this by just walking in the area, though. Nature has completely reclaimed the land, made it her own, and beautified man’s careless abuse with her own life and variety.

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
