down by the river

Today the lad and I went for a walk down by the river, well I say river it’s called Bottesford beck. I wanted to check out what early spring edibles could be found and the lad wanted an excuse to get dirty so off we went.

From the council estate where I live it’s about a fifteen minute walk, to the beck and when you are there you feel as if you are in the middle nowhere.

This is a mobile phone mast disguised as a tree? I still can’t figure out if it works or not?

Crab apples left over from last year, but a little close to dog walking routes for me.

These are or will be hops in the summer. I wanted to take some of these dried stalks as they look great but I’ll need a lift.

A few haw berries left that the birds must have missed.

In Scunthorpe the view of the steel works is never far away.

    It’s Bottesford Beck. If you walk down Messingham rd towards Messingham you will see a gate on the left, before the road starts to rise back up the hill. You could also get to it from Bottesford lane.

    Thats fine I still find places all the time. If you walk up to the fake tree and carry on you get to the farm shop although it’s very muddy this time of year.
