Those who have visited before will know that we spend a lot of time at Severn Valley Country Park……. It is actually the site of a very old coal mine that has gradually drifted back to a natural environment, Just a few miles from our front door in fact 10 minutes drive at most, many Saturdays or Sundays (assuming I wasn’t working) we’d take the drive and spend hours just snapping away at all sorts of wildlife and landscapes……….
Last year they (the council) decided to charge for parking, not really a big deal, one pound for the day or ten pounds for an annual ticket……… we bought the annual because there was rarely a weekend we didn’t visit, last week they decided that they’d send us a demand for this years parking…. twenty pounds this year?….. what planet are they on then 100% increase? anyone would think they were the Greek government!…..:(
Needless to say we’ll be spending less time there this year, but I remind myself that Severn Valley Country Park litters my hard drive anyway and I will continue to share these images!……:)
