Favourite walk up Staple Hill

On Sunday, being a reasonably pleasant day we took ourselves up to Staple Hill for our favourite walk.  The trees always provide a great subject for photos.


There was one tree that had grown higher than the others and slightly to one side.


We could also see all the new growth on the pine trees; the ends all being lighter in colour than the previous growth.


On one side of the loop walk you get fabulous views right over to Wales.  The land is managed by Neroche and here is a sign they put up acclaiming the woods are for everyone.


As we rounded the corner we saw some people had built a structure like a dome shelter out of saplings.


Inside were some mysterious hangings, one like a butterfly and one like a dreamcatcher.


We wondered who had built it and why but there was no sign and no one to ask.  I rather liked the fact that someone had been creative in the woods.
