Early Morning Mist in The Chew Valley

Tucked away in the shadow of the Mendip Hills, the Chew Valley and its lakes are a haven of tranquillity between the bustling cities of Bath and Bristol.The Chew Valley has a history that dates back more than 10,000 years and is rich in mystery and myths. Chew Valley Lake is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by unspoilt meadows and woods.

Its surrounding reedbeds are also amongst the largest in the south-west. It is extremely important for migrating and wintering birds including wildfowl, waders, warblers and swallows. Large numbers of reed warblers breed in the reedbeds which are also a vital autumn feeding station for both them and sedge warblers prior to and during their migration.

 

The Wye Valley

The Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is an internationally important protected landscape.

It can be inspiring throughout the year, even when mists shroud the hills and the river is swollen with rain. The secret to the valley's attraction lies in the drama of its gorge and its dense woodlands. The steep hills lead up and open out to spectacular viewpoints and then down to peaceful riverside pathways

Symonds Yat Rock

From Symonds Yat Rock you can see wonderful views of the river. You may even glimpse peregrine falcons, which nest in the cliffs nearby. The many walks include a steep path down to Symonds Yat East and the river.

R WILLIAMS PARRY – ODE TO THE SUMMER

The Love Messenger -excerpt

Late last night,

with the March waves in the sea,

and the snow whitening the land,

I tarried long over the embers

of the light hearth, and after I had long been contemplating,

I suddenly dreamt

of July’s golden sun amidst

its choice flowers. The dream came like magic.

Translation from the Welsh by Gwynn ap Gwilym ©

Glastonbury Tor is a teardrop-shaped hill at Glastonbury, Somerset England, with its only standing architectural feature the roofless St Michael’s Tower of the former church. Tor is a local word of Celtic origin meaning 'conical hill'. The Tor has a striking location in the middle of a plain called the Summerland Meadows. The spot seems to have been called Ynys yr Afalon by the Britons, and it is widely believed to be the Avalan of Arthurian legend.

The slopes of the Tor appear to be quite regularly terraced. Some believe that this formation is the remains of an ancient, perhaps Neolithic, sacred labyrinth. Others attribute the terraces to natural ruts formed everywhere on grassy slopes by generations of grazing animals, which are slow to disappear if the grass cover is left undisturbed. The generally accepted explanation is terracing for farming, possibly by medieval monks.
