AGM walk Ferry Meadows

As we left Wisbech the sky was dark and rain looked threatening but on arrival at The Country Park, although waterproofs  had been donned by the group, it stayed fine and the sun shone. A new member (Anne) joined us today.

The walk was around Ferry Meadows and into Alwaton where a sign at the old school informed us that Henry Royce had been born in the village.

The winds of the previous week had brought down lots of the leaves but some colours can be seen in the pictures.  We stopped at Alwalton weir for a drinks stop and watched a narrow boat moving from the lower level of the river to the upper level. As we left a group of about 8 boats were moving up river in a queue after the firework display the evening before.

As we approached the bridge, almost at journey’s end, the sky had darkened and rain was threatening but we made it back ready for the group’s Annual General Meeting.

After the AGM, as we left the park, I took a photo of the carved tree at the enterance. Does it compare with the one seen on the walk of a few weeks ago at North Pickerham?
