Cafe in the Park
This is opposite the cafe and was just as empty. Not even any water in it. I think it will be full of leaves soon the way the weather is going.
Leaving the park, you can walk/ride down this avenue of trees. Each one has been planted in memory of a fallen soldier from one of the two world wars. There is a small plinth at the bottom of each tree with the details of the deceased hero. This might be another location to try the four seasons approach, although these beech tree leaves should get a little more colourful as autumn progresses.
A reasonable 15 miler today, in the rain, and yes, the waterproof clothes worked a treat. Proof that there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.
