The straight lane and Kenley

Most of our minor roads are narrow and twisty, but there are one or two, below the Wenlock Edge, that have some dead-straight stretches. We’re using one of these to make a circular walk, to include a farm track taking us up to Kenley. Towards the top, there’s a solitary sunflower lying beside the track – however did it get there? More mysteries to follow – small heaps of potatoes, carrots, sugar beet, maize cobs and bean pods beside the road. Why?

Harnage Grange and Kenley

We’re walking along very quiet roads (one car per mile?) in the country below the Wenlock Edge. The ground is drying, but there’s been some heavy rain overnight, and the fields look very soggy in places. The afternoon is gradually improving – by the end, the sun is picking out details here and there in the landscape. Walking along Kenley ridge would be a scenic highlight, if we could see through the hedges (the camera can do it – poked through a gap…). An enjoyable little outing!
