Walks with my dog (10)

17th July 2019

Today’s walk was just one grid square from home. There are two public footpaths indicated on the map. I know the one leading east is now in a new housing estate. I decided to investigate the one between the two ‘x’s on the map.

We walked to the west end of the path through rows of standard ex-MoD housing, but the path itself proved to be quite pleasant for an urban footpath.

We we walked the length of the path between back gardens, but heavily shrubbed, then returned home, diverting via the green area labeled “Heath End” on the map., so that Sparky could play ball for a while.

Leaving this area we had to walk along a road with a narrow footpath each side. With Sparky walking to heel beside me on a short lead, I was close to the road. A car approached from ahead on the clear road, so close to the kerb that the wing mirror clipped my elbow in passing. Luckily no damage was suffered, but it was a shock.

  1. Did the car stop after it hit you? Hopefully was a slow speed impact. Otherwise sounds like a nice walk.
