This view struck me as one to try. I spotted some contractors in the oilseed crop, no doubt trying to re-establish the bypass markers which are now difficult to see as the crops have grown. The imminent works spurred me on to try and capture the view of the Minster before it is hidden by the bypass embankment. The hawthorn bushes are covered in blossom, a little late this year, and sit below the Minster, a may blossom skirt. Cow parsley and buttercups fringe the lane, busy farm vehicles pass hurriedly with smiling drivers and three horse riders walk past, a delightful spot.
