Church Brow Gardens


When I posted a photograph of this valley through which flows the Gower Hey Brook in January 2014 the bottom was flooded to quite a height.

When I walked by a couple of weeks ago the brook was barely a trickle.

Many years ago the bank below St George's Church was lined with allotments and gardens. Now only one allotment remains. Due to a combination of storms, vandalism and some neglect everything is gradually slipping down the valley side.

A contribution to Our World Tuesday and Rubbish Tuesday.

  6. Time does take a toll on most everything. However, neglect plays a big part as well.

  10. It still appears like such a place of peace, even with the litter, but something worthy and welcoming calls.
