|The tiny church at Haugh|
This tiny, attractive church is greenstone and chalk, it dates from Tudor times. Within the church are much earlier arches dating from 11th and 12th centuries. To the lower right hand side of the church you can see a blocked doorway which also dates to 12th century.
When the weather is better I'll take a walk along this track because hidden down here is a small wood of oak trees, where a very talented man constructs wattle and daub buildings in his workshop (the wood); he also lectures on traditional construction techniques, in several universities.
When we last saw him he was constructing a building which was going to be dismantled and then shipped to London, to be re-built as an exhibition centre. I would love to get some photographs of his work.
We paid a visit to Arnold - he was in a very playful mood. Nibbling the fringe to my scarf and trying to rifle through my pockets as well as very gently pulling at George's spectacles. His sheep friends were tucked away down the field, they had found a cosy spot and were not leaving it. He was looking really well and was obviously happy, despite the snow and the cold!
Snow has been falling again for the last three hours. Road conditions tomorrow should be interesting!
