The Mayfield monthly footpath walk took us  through the grounds of Mayfield school where we saw this fantastic display of flags beside the pond.  The walk took us on the old railway line, including the part licensed by Mayfield Parish Council from ESCC, which we would like to ensure is preserved for future use.

11 April: bluebells are looking wonderful but are predicted to be at their best for a short period between 13 and 15 April.

With leaves starting to grow fast, some of the further views from ridges will soon be blocked by the greenery.  But the view below from Lake Street should only become more colourful

March 2014

The end of March is seeing some flowers in a very advanced state. It was really surprising to see a dandelion already in seed. Also it is interesting to see the coppicing being carried out in Hawksden Park Wood, a traditional skill still being practised. Two photos below show the coppicing and a view of Hawksden Park Wood from the other side of the valley where the coppiced area is a visible scar in the wood.

By mid-March the sun and wind had dried up the ground so that it was becoming hard to remember the sodden, muddy state of roads, paths and fields only a month previously.

January 2014
Sussex, Wealden, Mayfield, Court Meadow, football pitch, under water
We are lucky not to be suffering floods such as they are experiencing in Wales and the South West but it still feels as though we are having much more than our fair share of rain.  I have never seen so much water lying on the field at the side of the football pitch.  The ground is so sodden that the water cannot drain through it

At least all the rain makes the waterfall by the side of footpath 90a more impressive than usual
