Still in Kingsclere here's a view of the village green. The road in the foreground used to be the busy A339 between Newbury and Basingstoke, now there is a bypass around the village which has turned the village centre into a peaceful place.

Old plough by the side of the road in Hook.

Tuesday, 19 August 2008


This was a pile of logs awaiting collection beside the road in Lasham. The timber is not of the best quality so I guess it will be used for fencing. I loved the honey colour of freshly sawn timber which was just a bit damp after all the rain we've had.
