Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Who Walked Here?



An ancient mossy lane, where many feet have passed.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. A nice picture – that also make my fantasy wander back to the past.
    The first photo in your previous post of the fence is great with the fading background!

  2. Looks like a green lane, or ancient path that led along the boundary between two properties. I remember reading about green lanes in The Making of the English Landscape, by W G Hoskins (I think). A classic book, have you read it?

  3. Very inviting but how far does it go? These days such paths often end suddenly where new field boundaries, fences or walls have been built across them.

    They are intriguing, though, and make us wonder what their destinations were and whether these still exist. A clue might be found in old maps.

  4. Very nicely lit, Mrs. Uhhd. I cannot imagine passing such a lane without walking down it.

  5. What a gorgeous tree!! Love the soft colors here!!!

  6. hi mrs uhdd – lovely foto – and lovely tree too. sara 🙂

  7. Its a lovely picture, makes me want to run down it and see whats beyond the curve.

  8. Lovely is right. I do so like stone walls and moss, so the combination is great.
