I set out to visit the house in the middle of this picture so that we could make some arrangements for the baptism of their youngest child. Unfortunately I have only been there before by horse, riding along the ridge from another farm; and I didn't realise how deeply rutted was the track that I chose to take me up the hill. The car grounded half way up and I had to walk the rest of the way, luckily remembering to take the baptism papers with me. After our chat, I got the farmer to drive down in a larger vehicle and tow me free so that I could reverse the rest of the way back to the road.
The rest of the day was spent in the rectory preparing for Sunday services.
