A Morning Stroll at Shatterford

Missy the Swamp Monster

Shatterford Bog

A little Moo

Ponies grazing at Shatterford.

This morning started off sunny and we set off for a walk at Shatterford. We were the only car in the car park The dogs loved playing in the big puddles and the swamp. At one stage o our walk we heard an enormous crash, and then we heard the chainsaws.....they were working in the Inclosure. We weren't going that way so it didn't bother us. By the little bridges, which were in a bad state of disrepair we met some moo cows., and a bit further on we came across a very yappy Jack Russell. The next bridge had been repaired and the workmens truck had really churned the path up! As we entered the woods we came across a lovely group of Fallow bucks.
By the time we got back to the car the skies were dark grey and the rain began on the journey home! But who cares? we had a good walk!
