Not a picture of the waterfront, about halfway down the half of the High Street on the left hand side as you are walking towards the waterfront is St Mary’s church this is where the Magnolia tree is growing. A Magnolia in mono seems just about right.
Without driving anywhere, there are only a couple of walks that I can reasonably do that end up somewhere interesting. Obviously, the one I do is the most obvious with what realistic the most interesting visiting point; the waterfront.
Then I could do down to the “Iron Bridge”. Down the footpath that used to be the railway track to Stokes Bay. Getting to the Iron Bridge offers a couple of photographic opportunities, but not very interesting from a shipping point of view, well non-existent really. Still, if the sun is right, pictures can really be quite nice.
Another route would be go to Weevil Lane. The first few hundred yards have only St Georges Barracks which in their own way quite photogenic, and you end up on the bridge at Forton Creek. Its’ a bridge can be raised to allow small boats through – I’ve never seen the bridge in its raised state. I’d quite like to see that.
There are a few routes that don’t go anywhere near water, I could explore some of those from a historic point of view. There’s quite a lot of history just on the Waterfront. I’m not sure I’ve finished exploring that yet.
