Seend, near Melksham, Wiltshire

Heron, SeendWe're only a couple of miles from the Kennet and Avon canal - and for each of the last three evenings, in this Indian Summer, I've taken a stroll down there. Trying out my new camera in the half light, I'm going to show you some picture - this one of a heron is mediocre, I know, but some of the others are more impressive ...


Swing Bridge on canal

Swan and boat on Canal


Although the scene looks tranquil, that wasn't always the case here about - indeed Seend Iron works must once have been a hive of activity! [See also Seend]

The Barge, SeendAnd at the end of the walk, what better that to sit outside at "The Barge" ... if not to drink too many pints of Wadworth 6X, then to take in the setting sun over the canal!

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
