A cycle ride starting in Moor Road, left, at Fox house, took me over to Boxted via Hundred Lane, centre and now getting dry. the gardens on Carter's hill, Boxted, right, are always worth a shot!

A series of potholes developed along Dedham Road , just past the turning for the church. I drove into the deepest of these when the road was completely flooded on Christmas Day. Two new front tyres and the tracking later ....

The junction of Old Mill Road with Dedham Road was frozen and bleak in a pretty way.

Dressed up warm against the wind and cold, these horses usually forsake the shelter of their stables for the open field. Right, mucking out with a view over the Dedham Vale on a crisp morning!

The melting of the snow gave a chance to see what the footpaths were like, but I sensibly stuck to those that did not go over ploughed fields! FP33 from Park Lane to the community field.

Plenty going on in Chapel Road, with the builder's lorry at Ferryer's Wake and the sewerage lining in full swing near the old Chapel ... traffic had to weave in and out.

Drama in Moor Road, as the water main gives way outside 'The Granary'. The response was pretty quick and all concerned were affable and courteous. The hole was cut, the pipe repaired ... and the hole was left over the weekend for another team in fill-in and close up!
