As we walked through Dryham we saw that the road ahead was flooded. As we got closer we could hear the gushing of water. If you did not know any better you would think that a pipe had burst. Instead a waterfall that ran from some ones back garden, spilled out on to the road. We had to time our crossing well as we would be targets for a dam good soaking should any knob head decide to drive through at speed.
From Dyrham we headed back along Doynton Lane, passing the entrance to Monochs way that we had ventured down an hour or two before. This lead us back into Doynton where we headed out along Bury Lane towards London Road. We walked past the back (or front) of the quarry. Mark told us how different it looked when he worked there and which rows of houses were not there previously, and the main site entrance. It was evident that the quarry is receding and winding down its operations. The pub finally come into view, we got to the car and changed our footwear. It was nice to sit down and take that first sip. It has to be said once we get settled we don't want to move, we could sit in there all afternoon. Another walk in the bag time to plan the next.
