After sunset I set off back & am ashamed to say that I became disoriented and lost. This way & that I scrabbled through shrubbery, hedges and a bog. At one point I had to cross a stream or ditch and dunked a leg calf-deep in mud.
By then darkness was fast approaching, I had no idea which way to head and was feeling exhausted, but rather than give up and find a cranny to spend the night in, I pressed on.
Eventually I stumbled across a track that looked like farm machinery had recently used so I followed it with no idea where it led. On & on it went for what seemed like a couple of miles. Darkness was now complete, there were no lights in the distance or any other sign of civilisation & I had a hell of a thirst.
This was all I could see:
At long last the track led me to a road, about 2 miles from home & a mile further than from where I'd started. By the time I got back to the car I was thoroughly buggered.
I got a couple of half decent photos out of it though.
Here's a few shots of fireworks to be going on with:
