Hello :) and welcome to kristieinbc glad to see you x
Today's hearty story is a little closer to home. In the neighbouring valley to our village is the hamlet of Wycoller, which on a summer's bank holiday is absolutely heaving with visitors but on a late spring morning last year, we found ourselves the only presence.
Wycoller has a lovely mix of ancient and modern woodland, medieval farming relics, wuzzing holes and vaccaries, literary connections and archaic bridges. The exclusion of cars except for the locals adds to the gentle world-forgotten tranquility.
Along the stream, through the village, are woven willow tunnels, domes and animals. In the large dome is a beautifully carved seat - looking a little like a huge upturned molar - with 'World peace❤ starts in our own hearts'.
Thanks to Eldest for this photo - my boys are brilliant at finding heart shaped things for me :)
