Stockhill Woods in the Snow
Day two of the this weeks winter adventure up in the Mendip Hills of Somerset. Today we did not just have snow but also thick fog.
I parked in the excellent car park at Stockhill Wood. First I headed across Priddy Mineries and the open access land on the edge of North Hill.
On North Hill overlooking the large Wadegrave Pond is a line of large beech trees.
I loved the smooth lumps of snow covering the ground in the fields.
Only a few yards away under the trees there was a constant drip drip drip of water. At times I thought it was raining. But it doesn’t just rain under trees.
Finally, I returned to the woods.
The golden beech leaves looked cool in the snow and fog.
