Stoggles in the Stream

Just downstream of Keepers Cottage there is a line of three old coppiced Tree stumps, known locally at Stoggles, that are now in the middle of the Stream

It seems unlikely these grew in the stream, hence perhaps the course of the stream has changed over the years, widened, and worn away round the back of the Stoggles

Taken with 1/10 sec shutter speed to blur the water.  Handheld  :-)

The upstream Stoggle forms an arch, and is thought locally to have perhaps been an old bridge foundation?

Snowdrops by Stone Bridge

The Snowdrops on the bank opposite the Stone Bridge are in full flower this week.  Nice sheets of them, not quite fully open flowers yet, perhaps this weekend
