Hawkbatch, a fallen tree and muddy pigs…

We live on the edge of the beautiful Wyre Forest and this week we walked around Hawkbatch, a trail we havent been around for a number of years.

It has spectacular views over the Severn Valley, the River and heritage railway, as well as Trimpley Reservoir which has a pipline to the Elan Valley in Wales.

Two things that were memorable en route were firstly this tree that had upturned as a result of the waterlogged ground

And these pigs! They are being used to clear areas of shrubland and brambles to make way for small oak trees to grow in their place.
