On the 27th I explored a couple of woodlands in the Hanningfield area which I have been looking at lately.
The first was Hawkswood Wood, at least that is what I have called it, just past Hanningfield Reservoir at the dam end. I have added my walk through this lovely overgrown woodland on my KOMOOT hiking app so click HERE if you would like to see the exact route I took. I have also written about it in more detail elsewhere on my blog so click HERE if you would like to see more of my little exploration there.
The second woodland I visited was CROWSHEATH WOOD NATURE RESERVE, run by the ESSEX WILDLIFE TRUST, which is only a few hundred yards up the road from Hanningfield Reservoirs Wildlife Trust site. This beautiful woodland is only small but is definitely worth a visit and is apparently a great are to see Springtime wild flowers. I have included the walk through this woodland on my KOMOOT app so click HERE if you would like to follow the same route I took. I have written more about it elsewhere in my blog so click HERE if you want to read more and see lots more pictures of my little stroll.
On the 28th I took a little walk around another local wood that is pretty local to me. This was a lovely walk on a hot afternoon as the shade of the trees dropped the temperature in the woods considerably. I have added this little woodland walk to my KOMOOT app so if you click HERE you will be able to see the route I took. I have also written more about this woodland in my blog so click HERE to read more and see lots more pictures.
On the 29th I took the boys for their usual walk around a local country park. Nothing interesting to report other than the boys enjoyed themselves and I had my mornings coffee sitting in the sun.
