Pleasant walks with camera and three dogs

Autumn in Rivington

In spite of the frequent rainy days at this time of year, and some days it has been torrential, Rivington still wears its autumnal coat. So on the all too rare dry days I’ve taken my camera out with me when we’ve had our daily stroll around the paths and woodlands of Rivington. Here are some of the pictures I’ve taken this past month to give you a flavour of how colourful it can look.

As you walk the path from Rivington High School to Rivington Hall you will go past this magnificent tree, possibly the oldest one in Rivington.

    What a beautiful place to take the fur children for a run! 🙂

    My three certainly enjoy themselves. It was a wet day today, but they enjoyed charging about in the wet leaves (and a fair amount of mud and water). 😉
