Quiz Photos No.11

     Just a row of trees, but what an extraordinary shape - where are these?                            ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        This is an easy one, that is, if you've been there!                                                                               ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________                                                                               This last one isn't a mystery, just a beautiful reminder that the bluebells are very plentiful at the moment and if you can get to a bluebell wood safely, are well worth a look.                                 ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________                                                                                                                                                                                                              QUIZ ANSWERS   The gate is on the Midhurst Rother footpath, Woolbeding Estate just after leaving the A272   and that lovely church is St Hubert's Chapel in Idsworth. It was once the centre of a Saxon settlement but the repeated visits of the plague decimated the population and there is no longer any trace of the old village. Wall paintings inside pre-date the plague by only 18 years, having been painted in 1330.

Quiz Photos No. 10

                         A lovely country scene - should be easy to identify where this is if you live in Midhurst.               ____________________________________________________________________________________________                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              This is really too easy and isn't even a photo, but what a nice painting of this wonderful old church. Where is it?                              _______________________________________________________________________________________________________       The Owl in the  photo from last time is in the garden of a house in Cooks Lane, Walderton. It can be seen on the route up towards West Marden.   The tree is in Cowdray Park, between Benbow Ponds and the golf course. This photo also appeared in the Midhurst & Petworth Observer at the time.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               If you have any photos that you think may be of interest, please send them in as supplies are running low!!
