The sun slanting through the trees on the Downton Estate
Frosty underfoot as we headed away from the Teme
A herd of deer seemingly unconcerned by our presence
A mistletoe smothered tree at Snead Vallets Farm
Upper Pool near Decoy Cottage
A pheasant quite unbothered by us at Stubbs Coppice
We made a gentle descent and entered the wilderness at Fiddler's Elbow - having no idea where the path was we followed the clearest and least overgrown path which took us generally in the right direction, emerging onto the A4113 and then throught a hedge where we headed downhill to Gravel Farm.
