Stoke Albany

Sunday 25th November 2018

There was some atmospheric mist sitting in the valleys as we drove over to Stoke Albany. The day was rather grey in the morning but it did brighten up in the afternoon and the sun came out at times.

The main topic of conversation between Alan and Neville was the almighty mess the Brexit negotiations seem to be in. This topic will no doubt run and run.

The main point of interest on the walk was the enormous footbridge over the main line railway. Apart from a stepped access, the bridge had a 3 metre wide ramp suitable for wheel–chairs. There was not a 3 metre wide gate in the field boundary either side, so the purpose of this ramp remained a mystery

The White Swan in Stoke Albany provided a suitable watering hole upon completion of the walk.

Report – Alan

We were intrigued by the scale and complexity of this bridge over the railway which would not only accommodate pedestrians but also a herd of disabled buffalos.
