Beatrice potters off To Dunstable Downs

As the long awaited sunshine broke through i decide it was about time i did some pottering about. i decided to go to Dunstable Downs which is in Bedfordshire. It is part of the Chilterns and has some beautiful views and woodland areas.

As you can see the view are lovely and the strange metal object is actually an  environmentally friendly ventilation system for the visitor centre.

Off into the woods, i do feel a bit like little red Riding Hood, but i don’t think there are any wolves in here.

After the long winter the vegetation is starting to spring up.

looks like the woodworms have been busy.

In the woods there are lots of things for children to play on , which have been made out of fallen trees.

  1. Thank you for taking me on this wonderful walk through the Dunstable Downs. Little Beatrice is such a charmer and so perfectly attired!

  2. Thanks for this lovely trip in the countryside. I found that stand of large, old trees, with no underbrush, very interesting. Most woods I see are more densely grown and paths have to be manually cut to allow walking. I love Beatrice’s outfit; where did those overalls come from? Thanks again for ALL your wonderful posts!

  3. A wonderful post Theresa. Your girl looks fantastic with her bobbed cut and her sweater with overalls plus great wellies. The Dunstable Downs looks like a lovely place to visit and nice to see as things are hopefully returning to life. The trees are inspiring! Spring is the air! 😊 xxx

    1. Really enjoyed the trip to The Dunstable Downs and loved your doll’s wellies. If you ever come across any more and post them for sale, I’d love a pair. Thanks for taking me along on your day trip.

  4. Looks like Beatrice enjoyed her walk on the sunny Dunstable Downs, I’m glad to see she was well prepared for any muddy puddles along the way with her wellies and dungarees.
