The Road Goes Ever On

Decided to add a new category to the old blog, The Road Goes Ever On. Got a bit of a thing of old tracks, paths, roads and ancient rights of way. When ever I’m out blundering about and I see one I can’t help meself, I have to go and investigate and fall over somewhere along it

Through the reedbeds
In to the mist at Parham
Summer Farm track
Through the Hay
Sandlings track

  1. Yes, tracks are like something out of a fairy tale aren’t they? You absolutely must follow it to see what is around the hidden bend (Cherokees galloping by), or at the end of the track. Probably nothing usually, but still, the anticipation is there and that is half the enjoyment.

  2. Reblogged this on Elemental Magic and commented:
    The beauty of taking White and Black shots…..
    somehow you can feel the density of the clouds more…
    you can touch every single branch…
    you can feel the coolness of the shadows πŸ˜€
    Beautifully Taken SHOTS πŸ˜€

      1. Hehe πŸ˜€ your welcome…
        I deserved to be honest πŸ˜€
        I loved the pictures
        looking forward to reblogging more πŸ˜‰

  3. Love them… every one of them. I’m glad I’m not the only one with a thing for old roads or paths. I love going out on the prairies and finding little paths through the golden grasses. I always wonder when I look at photos like this… “where does this path lead?” Stunning photos once again. Good work.

    1. Cheers! Thank you very much. Yes I see an interesting track winding through the woods and I’m gone. It’ll get me in to grief one day I’m sure πŸ™‚

  4. I know the attraction to the old roads and paths and i like the way there are interpreted. This will be a very interesting series. Noteworthy.

  5. Nice project there Lee.
    Can I expect a book of every single right of way, down your way, so to speak.
    I am currently working on gatelodges in my local park, there are 30 or 33 in total, I like a bit of a challenge. I have a very shiny [and red] head / neck from a full day out in some truly unseasonal sunshine. Six done, only……….a lot to go.

    1. Ha! I think I’d need another lifetime or three for that as there are so many of them.

      Its amazing how old some of those tracks are. The last image is not to far from the Sutton Hoo Burial site, the alleged burial of Readwald king of the Wuffingas and Anglia. So I would imagine people may have used it for millenia.
