This morning we took the opportunity to get out in the sunshine. The lanes are now clear, although the snow hasn't melted where it has drifted, particularly against stone walls.
Agden Reservoir. It was completed in 1869 and holds 560 million gallons of water. The word 'agden' means 'valley of the oak trees'.
We went up to High Bradfield as I wanted to take some photos from St. Nicholas' churchyard and higher up the hill behind the church.
View from a window of The Old Horns Inn. It was built on the site of an older inn in 1830 and was previously used as a farm.
The hill in the distance to the right is the site of what was an old encampment, probably Saxon.
The church was closed although sometimes there's an opportunity to visit outside service times.
This photo was taken last year at this time of the year when the daffodils were out. This building next to the church is a Watch House, built in 1832 to allow a guard to watch over the graveyard for possible body snatchers.
I was pleased to see the Lesser Celandine as it really speaks to me of Springtime.
