Lonesome...

A solitary tree sitting on the side of the ancient Offa's Dyke.

Offa was King of Mercia from 757 to 796 AD. Offa’s Dyke is a linear earthwork which roughly follows the Welsh/English boundary. It consisted of a ditch and rampart constructed with the ditch on the Welsh-facing side, and appears to have been carefully aligned to present an open view into Wales from along its length... he wanted to be able to see the buggers coming!

This landscape is stunning beautiful! Sad that this is the last of the Ents!

You can't really tell from this picture but the meandering River Teme in the valley bottom has completely dried out... the recent rain definitely needed
