Well it’s week 39 and that means we are 3 quarters the way through the challenge and 3 quarters through the year and now definitely Autumn and what could be more appropriate than Horse Chestnut Conkers. It was quite a surprise to me that in Wrentham there should be so many laying on the ground as in my youth they would have been gathered up by the village children.
These sheep were grazing and laying down in a field along Mill Lane in Wrentham.
Wood Farm Barn, Benacre
A beautiful barn at the back of the Benacre Estate near Wrentham, Suffolk. The barn was built in 1840 when it was an agricultural building but it underwent refurbishment in 2002 and is now used for weddings and corporate events.
European Horse Chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) or as we knew it from our childhood ‘conker tree’. Yet more signs of Autumn with conkers on the ground, these ones in Wrentham.
Wrentham village pound which was used in the 18th and 19th century to keep stray animals that were found in the parish.
