Pictures from Riccal Dale in May 2020: After a limited travel freedom from Covid-19 lockdown - one can now travel to do a walk! - such a blessing with endless bad/good? news on coronavirus! Rotting wood, great swathes of wonderful bluebells and amazing avenues of wild garlic - a great antidote to us partially 'lockdowned' over 70s !!! (four new photographs from our good friend Jean Eadington)
