Over the hills ....

Life has been uniformly grim of late due to a family bereavement - recent news and comment from the Church of England didn't exactly lift the gloom.
On Tuesday the dog and I went for a long and not uneventful walk over the hills not that far from here in the north of the county.
These are some views of the ruins of Llanthony Priory and the more recent remains of Father Ignatius' monastery at Capel-y-ffin. 

Perspective, hope but not false optimism ....

'.... but the steep and rugged pathway may we tread rejoicingly....'

Llanthony again - this time from far above, towards the end of the circular walk

The hero of the hour, who guided me safely down after my boots broke!
