The B311 Red Road, between Heatherside in Camberley and West End that passes by Lightwater, is a busy and important road.
I’m sure I don’t really need to tell you that, also ny road works, accidents, broken down cars cause huge delays, especially during rush hours.
So, when there’s a notice appearing on the road indicating some upcoming road works, vehicles slow down to attempt to read the sign. The signs aren’t large, and the text is small, therefore reading from a moving vehicle is mostly unsuccessful. Here’s a photo of the sign. I’m try and find out more. Click on image to enlarge.
UPDATED: See below photo.
I knew there’d be someone who knows more about this than I do, and of course it’s knowledgeable Speedicus. His comment deserves wider prominence,
The detention pond in Lightwater, alongside Red Road, to hold water during periods of heavy rain remains partially full, which is an indication of the volume of rain we’ve recently experienced.
I photograhed a full detention pond on October 7th this month – see HERE. I disturbed a Grey Heron when taking my photo. Lo and behold, when I took a photo a couple of days ago I disturbed a Grey Heron agin, you might be able to see it on the grass when you expand the photo.
I’m confident there are no fish in the pond, maybe there’s a worm or too. So, I think the Heron would be advised to choose a pond with fish.
On my most recent heathland walk, where I even ventured down into Folly Bog, I saw many mushrooms. Today I’m on another heatland walk, and am hoping to see many more varieties of mushrooms.
Here are the photos of the mushrooms on my most recent walk. Do I know what they are, no I don’t, and we’ve numerous books on mushrooms at home. Closer study is needed to identify them, which is my next challenge.
Walking home yesterday fom a walk over our local heathland I noticed that the detention pond in Lightwater, near the junction of Lightwater Road and Red Road, was full.
The detention pond fills when the road drainage systems are overloaded in very heavy rain. It must therefore have poured down on Saurday evening. Here’s the evidence.
UPDATE: Checking back the previous time I noticed the was pond filled was in 2007.
