A quick fire post that is a diversion from what I should be doing.
The village of Ashford in the Water, Derbyshire; chocolate box pretty and at 5:40 on a Monday afternoon much quieter than you’d find it at weekends and bank holidays, when if would have a fair few more tourists milling around.
I wondered if the lone swan had a mate (they pair for life) maybe its mate was sat on a clutch of eggs, it seemed to have a bit of a problem with one of its leg, or perhaps swans always paddle with one leg. Either way it was a very serene sight cruising the river Wye in the late afternoon sun
The houses are built from the local limestone.
No village scene would be complete without a parish church
Is that the time I must be going.
