Wild Walks

Photographs l have taken capturing moments and beautiful scenery alike around the medieval town of Sandwich and surrounding areas in Kent and added to nature and inspiration quotes and accompanied with music.

Sandwich, Kent
I live in the beautiful and historic town of Sandwich in Kent in the southeast of England. The River Stour lies on the edge of the town. Originally, Sandwich was one of the Cinque Ports, and we have many medieval buildings here from the original construction time. Sandwich is two miles from the coast, and although once it was a major port in its own right, this is no longer the case due to the silting up of the River Stour.

Gazen Salts Nature Reserve
The woodlands are home to many species of flora also such as primroses, celandine, dog rose, oak, ash, wild cherry, elm, field maple, wild privet, marsh marigold, marshmallow, meadowsweet, black bush, yellow iris and many other exciting plants of interest.

The lake and the waterways in the Reserve are sustained by a sluice gate connected to the River Stour. The waters further feed and play host to a diverse range of wildlife, including species such as sticklebacks, pond skaters, diving beetles, frogs and toads, newts, kingfishers, moorhens, bats, rats, shrews, weasels, stoats, foxes, hedgehogs, moles, water voles, grass snakes, mallard, tufted, pochard and shoveler ducks, warblers, woodpeckers, blackcaps, sparrowhawks, grey squirrels, parakeets and others including many butterfly species too.

“To waste, to destroy our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.”

  1. The town you live in is charming. It reminds me of some of the quaint mountain towns I have visited. I love the inclusion of quotes and how you have structured them with the photos! Awesome!

    1. I thought you might appreciate them Eugenia. A few weeks ago l complimented you on a poem that you wrote and asked if l could use it, it was for the fourth gallery when that comes around called ‘Reader’s Gallery’.

      This will showcase and highlight reader’s poetry, content posts and so on as these too will further compliment the blog’s content environment.

      I wanted this blog yes sure to be a business blog, but a blog with a twist.

      Sandwich is a lovely town. I am yet to visit the States to sample the tastes of American history.

      I very specifically wanted to have this blog aimed at both internal WordPress readers as well as external readers on the Internet.
