For our first countryside tromp of the year we chose a short 4 mile circular walk around Theale. Because of yesterday's burglary, I was forced to rely on my iPhone camera and I have to say, I don't think it let me down. I did miss having a zoom function though!
The walk mostly took us through the Englefield Estate.
|There were a bunch of old agricultural machines and carriages|
just sitting in a barn in the middle of the village
|I spotted this wonderful garden entrance behind the garden centre|
|St Mark's Church, which dates back to 1190. It wasn't open,|
so we couldn't go in and have a look inside.
|The main house, as seen from the churchyard. The gardens|
weren't open so I couldn't get a closer look.
|The main gate at the entrance. The driveway was very long indeed!|
This dates back to the 1860s.
|Holy Trinity church in Theale. I had no idea this was there!|
|It wasn't open either. I would love to see inside.|
|The bell tower is even taller than the main church.|
|I got lucky with the blue skies and sunshine for these shots.|
