Plessey Woods was our May walk venue a veritable huge wooded area open to the public. Led by Pat & Fred we set off from the visitor centre skirting around the top of the woods admiring the wonderful display of wild garlic with some bluebells adding patches of colour. Descending down the hillside we came to the River Blyth its water a little murky (private fishing) but minnows etc. Can be caught from the wooden platform where we took a breather.

Further on we came to a possible Fairy Glen with small doors fitted to the trees, no Fairies to be seen but we did see the giant’s hand creeping round the edge of his door no dawdling here.

As we turned for home knots on the trees had been outlined as eyes probably to keep a watch out for vandals, next some upright half telegraph poles artistically painted as rolls of carpet or canvas (remember what that was) onwards and we passed the wooden drum set  then continuing the last few hundred yards to arrive back at the visitor centre our stop for a packed lunch.

Sun and shelter from the wind made this a most enjoyable walk in a well preserved and litter free area.Many thanks to Pat & Fred who introduced us to this wooded area.
