However, my purpose was to walk the brand new Blue Trail.
This new trail doesn't officially open until next Wednesday, I gather, though visitors are being treated to a preview.
The trail passes a field of barley and a derelict cottage with a rusty corugated iron roof.
I searched for the ruins of an ancient church in a field close to the Glen, though all I could find were several large stones.
The trail meanders through lovely woodland till it joins the Red Trail at a junction which leads to The Folly, where I lunched this afternoon.
I sat on a wooden chair in the folly, had a beaker of tea, and ate my fresh fruit.
Thence I walked along the track, past a wild-flower meadow with cornflowers, past the old piggery, and back to my car.
