Picture behind the story #20 A walk in a Medieval Park


Fungus hunting in Stanton Park, WiltshireA personal PhotoChallenge matching a story to a photo every day for 30 days with short tales of travel, mountaineering, Nepal, art, and a few personal ones too!

Stanton Fitzwarren is a small village in Wiltshire, close to our home, with a history that can be traced back to Roman times with the site of a second century AD Roman villa, through Saxon times with the foundations of St Leonard’s Church, and through Norman and Medieval times with a Manor House and planted woodland.

I will write more about the church and a “different” Robin Hood once I get access to the church interior (locked due to previous vandalism), but this post is about a walk through the woods and the emerging, at last, of some Autumn fungus. I hope you like the photos?
