Moribund Spider & an Ambitious Mole
Last week I went on a circular walk, from Barnsley to Ampney Crucis ; following a walk written by Christopher Knowles. He was obviously in a good mood , leaving the reader with two memorable images.
The first one concerned the above picture of a barn , which he described as " swaying like a moribund spider" and later in his directions he says " continue forward with a hedge on the right , whilst a strange burrow on the left cuts into the field for a short distance , as if made by a mole with ambition ."
I really enjoyed this and it greatly added to the value of the walk.
