This scene was on the Bridgewater Taunton Canal close to Maunsel Lock. Is is stunningly attractive and can be cycled (or walked of course) all the way between the two towns. An unusual sight on the canal are the WW2 pillboxes that forded part of a defensive holding line in case of invasion – quite an incongruous sight. The land is rich in wild flowers and especially just now sea lavender and teems with birds and wildlife. One aspect of the wildlife we encountered was a pair of mink. Most unexpected and one was quite aggressive and bold and I only avoided an attack on my ankles by an interception from a braver soul than me. After that it was tranquil. A very beautiful place.
