Walk in the woods...




Out on foot and a stroll through the woods at the three bridges at Garvald village,
Jake dog enjoying a splash in the stream...


Stoneypath Tower...


Bacj through the woods...



Beach tree-often referred at `The Queen of the Forest`...


Lovely small glen...


Jake was happy he had found a good stick to carry!...



Lovely old road, full of history when you think of all the folk who have used it...



Then a stroll up another old road,  up over `Sled Hill`...


Hairpin bend that probably led to this road being discontinued fron being included as a through road as only room for one vehicle...



lovely old stone work in the walls...


In the distance is Bangley Hill and NB Law, forming a triangle for the bases during the Cold War...


Garvald ROC Monitoring Post...


If your new to the blog and don`t know what this is and their purpose during the Cold war,  watch this YouTube film i made here 10 years ago and some history of The Royal Observer Corps...
Class ideal song for the film!-`Only The Dead Deams of the Cold War Kid` by Hawkwind...

Down the hatch...



Chemical loo!


The room is trashed now by Neds...


I have visited over 40 ROC Posts now, loads more of these to visit and explore...



And superb food back at Tyninghame Cafe to round off a nice afternoon out...

More soon...
