Six Day Walk (3):
Clough Fold

This is the third post of some photographs of a walk I took some weeks ago. I'm sharing this walk with you over six days.

We started by walking down steps to Church Brow and took the path by Gower Bank which leads to the junction of Clough Fold Road and Fawley Avenue.

The footpath continues across what was once the boundary between Fawley Farm and Clough Fold Farm. Neither farm exists any longer and the land has been used for modern housing. As a result the footpath is a narrow way between suburban fences.

That really is narrow. Seems safe enough in the daytime, but it would be a little worrisome at night. Or maybe that's just from a personal point of view. :)

An impressive reflection upon modern life as a whole. Please have a nice Friday.

It's cool walking with you by these different places.I like a lot this passage,maybe it was a little bit cold weather that day, and that fence is huge!

They have done similar "urban" expansion here.
