The picture below shows a view of the Old Woodyard last May.
The buildings on the right have now been taken down and the rubbish cleared up leaving the building on the left in splendid isolation apart from the small wooden office behind. Here it is on a frosty morning.
The old Southern Water notices have gone too.
How well I remember when visiting these woods meant keeping to the public footpaths or trespassing in places where you were unwelcome. And how it has been totally transformed now that all the woods are open to everyone.
