A walk close to home this week taking in Saltford, Keynsham with surrounding Vales and the River Avon ,then ending along Bristol to Bath Cycle Path.
The first Picture is taken from the Wellsway looking towards Keynsham , not much to photograph before this point.
Next down to the River Chew and Chewton Place.
Chewton Place The 3-star Hotel ,mmmm not sure it still is 3 star but was a conference center and wedding location, maybe soon ?
Looking now to the Wellsway and Keynsham again.
Spring time Lambs i suppose it is March, these looks as though they are a few weeks if not months old.
Keynsham Rugby ground and St Johns the Baptist Church .
Our path follows along side and below the A4 Bypass, not that inspiring!
St. Johns again and Keynsham High Street.
