Visiting Northern England: The Seven Bridges

One Of The Seven Bridges

I loved this walk through part of Deer Park near Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden. Many of the giant, wide old trees are gnarled, twisted and so full of character I wanted to hug them! The walk was enchanting and mysterious as we strolled along and eventually crossed over seven handmade bridges. With the air being still the only sounds we heard (besides our footsteps) were of birds calling out to each other and the stream as it flowed over the stones. (I think the pheasant were having a convention there. The bushes and tall grasses were full of them.)
