The Best Fun!
A great tree for climbing if you're a young lad with supple limbs. Prior to meeting this youngster and his mum I met the trio in the extra photos.
They were carrying very large gardening bags which were full to bursting. They emptied the contents into a huge metal container .... my curiosity got the better of me and I just had to ask what they were doing .... a wonderful job of clearing Himalayan Balsam and other invasive plants that were just taking over. An on going project that will probably never come to an end but every little helps to clear the river bank.
