Rons Rambles. Dorset, England.

Up a bit late this mornin` by my standards, anyway, glad to say that icy wind has dropped at last, and whilst not exactly warm, there is an improvement, noticed some frenzied activity amongst the birds this morning, mostly pigeons, and just the one pair of doves, pleased to see these , they are now ...

The White Horse, I have been saving this one, continue up the fields, and here it is, a figure carved into the chalk escarpment, and representing a horse and rider, said to represent King George 111 , and about 200 years old, of course when you are used to seeing it almost every day it becomes commo...

Weird Patterns of wetness on the road, like it had rained in one area, then dry for a good few yards, then wet again, odd to say the least, do not dwell on this too long, I feel a slight improvement in the temperature, not quite freezin` now, good. Earlier today, and just one other on foot, exchange...

My Eyes Watered up, the moment I stepped out of my door, as I reached my gate tears were rolling down my cheeks, no worry I`m not a star crossed lover, just caught in a keening east wind , dry and cold, exactly what the weatherman promised last night. He also mentioned snow, no sign of that yet! Of ...

The start of the waning Moon, very chilly indeed, strode out in a healthy brisk style. Right on the corner, of the valley Rd and Mission Hall Lane, I froze, not with the cold. Right there just about 10 feet away was a small deer, it clocked me and moved off without real haste into the shrubs at the ...

Walked out in dry weather, came back in constant drizzle, the river level is down and that is good news, but for how long? Love that massive Duck, still bright and twinkle , twinkle, not a single soul around this early morn. Back to my past present and perhaps future, coming from a sporting family, ...

The pleasant Hoof. Out and away, under a sky full of stars, and mild dry walking conditions, soon into my stride, The Jordan was back in it's banks, but the sandbags must stay awhile yet, more rain anticipated, fingers crossed for the riverside homes and families. A few souls out early this morning,...

Had to fit in some more Hoofs today. being Christmas and all, I combined them with other duties, Took a fast hoof, down to the river on a hunch, and found myself breaking into an involuntary run , good grief my body was taking over and giving itself a workout, and it was fluid and easy, so that will...

The wet Hoof (part two) down in Dismal Dorset, up and out, into the great squelch (I don`t mind I nice squelch!) so wet, rain is heavy and constant. Togged up proper this dark morn, got my fishing attire on, from head to foot. I don`t have anything to report that I haven't told you about before, so ...

Pouring down with rain, but I don't care! Off out at the usual time, just decided to keep to the better lit areas, might as well get used to it, the weather forecast ahead is for much the same, flooding is predicted. But hey this is Dorset! People were everywhere, walking to work, getting the hounds...

The Upwey Hoof, took a Hoof to Upwey Station Yesterday, this is the nearest rail link to the village, and goes through some interesting countryside, The Mighty Chalbury Hillfort, for one, the first of the Bronze age Hillforts to be built in Dorzett. The Ramparts are fairly slight now, but the strong...

The Up The Works Hoof!! I was right up the works early this mornin` and I loved it! The Waterworks that is! There is a fine cluster of Victorian buildings, just where the village gives way to the fields that lead to the back edge, this is the water works, run by Wessex Water, which takes water from ...

As a reformed boozer, I still find old defunct pubs interesting, for all sorts of reasons, their position in the community for one, the little clues, which give away the past, like a hatch door at ground level to give the draymen access to the cellar. In the village I have identified three such buil...
