Into The Woods
Happy Autumn everyone! This image was taken on the edges of Horsell Common, in the woodland next to the wheelchair accessible pathway. How I wish more of the countryside had better access and provision for wheelchair users and those with restricted mobility! The access that has been put in around several areas of the Common shows that it is possible to do, without having any negative impacts on the landscape, wildlife or natural feel of the environment. Our beautiful countryside really should be open and available to all! I would have loved to go traipsing off through the burnished bracken into the birches with the ghostly trunks and golden canopy but I am a realist! Some things cannot be made possible, but I thank The Horsell Common Preservation Society and Woking Borough for enabling me to access this scene, allowing my mind to wander where my legs no longer can.
