Not sure there’s much new to be said really; we knew things were getting worse and now it’s more about quite how much worse and quite how long for. At least today is the Winter solstice so we’ve got some longer days to look forward to.
In the meantime, some images from yesterday’s sunny lunchtime walk around the Wall Hall estate in nearby Aldenham. At the start of the 20th Century the estate was leased by JP Morgan (yes, that one) and after his death it was used for the residence of the USA ambassador (Joseph Kennedy). Subsequently used as a teacher training college it has now, inevitably, been redeveloped into very expensive apartments – offers in excess of £3.5m for a 3 bedroom one currently on the market. Thankfully, the estate has been preserved for anyone to walk through, without charge.
The light yesterday was lovely too – really nice warm tones and a combination of blue skies and dark clouds which lifted nice but unremarkable scenery into something quite dramatic.
