Trip to the Valley of the Giants

It was a long trip back down to the forests today, but it was worth it. We visited the "Valley of the Giants" and the Ancient Forest.
Massive old trees and a fairly scarey tree top walk, or in the case of Terry, push in his wheel chair.

This Red Tingle tree is said to be over 300 years old.

The Ancient Forest area has limited access to wheelchairs which meant that Terry occassionaly had to get out whist I lifted it up and down the steps, but it was worth the effort.

A pleasant late lunch was had in another lovely old tea rooms, with a cottage garden.

Some great photos Stephen. I Particularly liked the one of your friend in the wheelchair negotiating the canopy path. Now that's an odd situation!
