West Stow Lake....

With many thanks to Mr Khan of Ely Mobile Solutions my camera is now repaired, and therefore a little spin out to West Stow Lake was called for, with newly repaired camera in hand.....

"Despite its natural appearance, the lake is actually a former gravel pit which was allowed to flood once the minerals had been extracted in the late 1970's.  The 12 acre lake has since matured and now supports a wide range of wildlife. It forms part of the West Stow Heath."  Source, information board on site.

A lovely stay in Compton Bishop, in beautiful Somerset

The second day of our trip my camera gave up the ghost as the on/off switch decided it had worked too hard over the years, so my photos are thin on the ground this trip (and some would say "thank goodness for small mercies!").....

The cottage we stayed in, called 'Crooks', (Dad would have said "That's appropriate!"), is at the foot of Crook's Peak, the highest peak in the Mendips....






The view from the back door .....


The road to Crook Peak ... Brent Knoll in the distance...





When I can download the rest of the photos from my SD card, there will be a few more for me to put on here, but these following photos are from a borrowed camera ....

Looking to Crook Peak.....
