A canal trail leaflet for a walk around the Queens Head area, 3.4 miles it said, nice easy walking it seemed so fully booted and spurred we set off, looking forward to seeing swathes of primroses brightening the countryside. Being a belt and braces man I also took along an Ordnance Survey map so there was no chance of getting lost. Up the towpath and there were the two geese getting ready for another attack, but in Jill they had met their nemesis, they took one look at her brandishing her Nordic Walking Poles and deciding that discretion is the better part of valour they took to the water and made off in high dudgeon.
Back at the aforementioned cottage we took the correct track and after passing Wooton Castle, I know it
Nearly back at Queens Head and, poking through the soil we found the first butterbur flowers of the year.
Arriving back we were pleased to see
Incidentally those were the only primroses we saw, a case for the Trade Descriptions Act?
