Wet walk from Lightwater to Deepcut brightened seeing invasive scrub cut back

It’s both healthy exercise and generally fun for me to walk from Lightwater to the RLC Museum at Deepcut*. Not quite so much fun today though, as it started off dry and then began to rain.

Did this time wear a waterproof jacket, a couple of weeks ago a put on a quilted jacket that said it was guaranteed waterproof. Turned out disappointingly not to be so. The heavy rain I walked through soaked the jacket and its quilting, so when I took it off it was almost as heavy as a sack of potatoes. I don’t know, does waterproofing disappear in time.

Pleasingly I spotted a tractor doing an excellent thorough job of mowing the invasive scrub and grasses alongside the track along Chobham Ridges on the Maultway. This will result in a blooming of wild flowers. Here a few of photos of the work.

*  Dear wife volunteers in the Museum, so can walk there, and then get a lift back home.
