I'm fortunate to live in walking distance of some gently undulating Essex countryside; these photos were all taken around Warley. The first 2 are of the West Meadow at Warley Place ("Miss Willmott's") - in spring (with daffodils) and autumn (with cattle). Photo 3 captures the familiar yellow-out of oilseed rape in flower, in this case looking east towards Little Warley. The mossy woodland "eye" pattern is at Warley Gap.
North Kent is among my favourite destinations for a day out walking, especially as much of it is accessible with a London travelcard or pass. First up is the River Darent at Darenth; next, an idyllic farm scene near Horton Kirby (I think!). The haymaking is at Luddesdown, while the dappled lane, and bovine "Reception Committee" are near Timberden Bottom.
I've included a couple of photos under the heading "Middlesex", mainly to annoy those who think the county no longer exists. Like much of Essex, it's a victim of the ever-sprawling "Greater London", but still retains some lovely countryside. The lake is at Harefield Place, "Shadows & Reflections" in Dollis Brook.
