Symonds Yat

Out for a drive on a dull day and ended up at Symonds Yat in Gloucestershire, England.

Now it has been some years since visiting here and I seem to remember it was more uneven back then. Today there are smooth paths to take you to a small ‘refreshment hut’ just down from the major viewpoint.

An elevated wooden bridge across the road leads to the main viewing area. There are some uneven surfaces off the path and on the lower viewpoint. These are quite slippery when wet and despite being careful I had a near miss resulting in a nice woman getting ready to catch me (thank you). I recovered my balance on my own fortunately, but it is nice to know help was there if needed. Perhaps I’m showing my age more than I thought 🙂

Lydney Docks

Whilst out for a drive I passed an unassuming little sign for – Lydney Docks – at, unsurprisingly, Lydney in Gloucestershire.

Now I have passed this sign I don’t know how many times, but this time it was different. This time I was going to explore. I had a camera with me as always. The bag, hat and whip were sadly at home. (Indiana Jones reference for those that didn’t get it) :)

Anyhooww…. The road to the harbour ends in a smallish free parking area.
