In my River series I'm back to my most local river today. This is the River Marden only a short distance from my cottage, and less than a mile from the town centre but already the landscape has changed dramatically. At the top of the picture on the left you can see the houses on Curzon Park. It was here in Wansdyke Drive that Tori Amos filmed her video for the song Raspberry Swirl, because of its resemble to an American suburb.
The line of trees below the houses show where the Calne branch of the Wilts and Berks Canal used to be, running parallel to the Marden out of Calne, and in the foreground on the river is the weir at Keevels.
The light was already failing when I took this walk and in only three weeks time British Summer Time will come to an end, the clocks will go back an hour, and the early evening will be plunged into darkness. I'm rather dreading this as it will throw any semblance of a routine or habituation out of the window as far as taking blips go. It will be my first Blip winter.
