A walk in the snow

A rare burst of snow in London was a good excuse to walk along familiar paths to see unfamiliar views. This is one of the "Ham Avenues" that flow around Ham House. This path leads from Ham House to Ham Common and has the rather majestic name of Grand South Avenue.

Normally I find these paths too wide too flat too clean and too straight and I prefer to head off piste into the narrow, hilly, muddy, bendy paths that wriggle aimlessly through Ham Lands. But the snow hides the urbanity and returns the paths to nature making them a pleasure to walk along again.
