This weeks walk took us to The Wishing Woods. We set off from the carpark of The Horse & Jockey pub near Curdridge into the woods. Following alongside the estuary the paths were all muddy as expected after the long and wet winter. The blue bells were just beginning to flower along with celandines and daffodils too.
We found there are some unusual features along this walk:
There is also a magic fairy tree - which has been here a great many years.
You can write a letter to the fairies and put it into the letterbox. The fairies will write you a reply which you must collect!
I have been told that over the years the fairies hand writing has always remained the same...
Further on along the walk there is a field in which you can picnic or play - and the Estury with swans and other wildlife to watch. It's a very tranquil place.
You can see here some older trees have fallen but the woods are still beautiful and it's a lovely walk.
