After stopping at a rather lovely ford on Sporhams Lane near Butts Green, we decided to find another, which brought us to Ulting as I know this road sometimes gets flooded. Alas, it wasn’t today. But, it was nice to get out and spend a few moments at Hoe Mill Lock on the Blackwater and Chelmer Navigation. It’s a calm and peaceful spot, with some house boats moored up along the way and few cars crossing the bridge. There was however a man on a ride on lawnmower helping to make the place look lovely.
I also recorded water leaking through the closed gates, which were damp enough to sport a fair selection of flora.
