Setting off from the wizard

On a nice sunny morning, on 8th June 2015, we headed off from the layby just past The Wizard, on the way to Alderley Edge.

We sauntered through the woods to meet with others in the National Trust car park. From there we crossed the road and set off down the lane.

Looking out to the west we got a good view of Jodrell Bank, across the potato field, which looked as though they will do well this year.

The rain we have had has made everything look so green this year.

We took our break in the sleepy church yard, where time had little meaning.

We headed off passing horses in the field whose frames betrayed their recent labours…

…as they guarded their newly born foals.

The warmth of the day caused the sheep to take shelter in the shade. They roused from their lazy recline as I got close to take a photo.

We returned via shady lanes…

…occasionally passing open fields which were graced with wild flowers.
