Weekend .

What a few busy days I have had and just did not get time to post yesterday, So decided I would post today, Its funny how life catches up on you and really would like the new month to be the start of a better time for me but just have to wait and see, 

Went to a lovely spot with friends on Thursday its a place called  Coaley Peak,  This is a picture I took there it has a lovely view and we sat and have a lovely salad meal that we brought with us, 

This Is about Coaley peak and I have to say well worth a visit, 

Coaley Peak Picnic Site is about four miles south west of Stroud on the B4066 to Uley. The site is twelve acres of open grassland with wild flowers and wonderful panoramic views over the Severn Vale towards the Forest of Dean, the Malvern Hills and the distant Welsh Hills. 

It is an excellent spot to have a picnic with plenty of tables with benches and seats, a suberb place to fly a kite or model aeroplane, or take a leisurely stroll through the adjacent Woodland Trust beech wood or the Cotswold Way National Trail. At the centre of the site is the Nympsfield long barrow, an "opened" example of a neolithic "Cotswold-Severn" chambered tomb of which nearly one hundred are known in the Cotswold region. 

Owned by Gloucestershire County Council for "the use and enjoyment by the public", Coaley Peak is edged on the south side by the Frocester Hill National Trust nature reserve where a topograph point out the distant landscape features and Stanley Woods owned by the Woodland Trust on the eastern side'

There is a designated parking spaces for people with disabilities and the picnic tables include one suitable for wheelchair users, interpretation boards and ice-cream seller at busy times.
