Chilfrome and Frampton, Dorset; Floods, The River Frome, Snowdrops and a Sacred Tree

From two Dorset walks, yesterday and today:

"The Frome, wi' ever-water'd brink,
Do run where shelvèn hills do zink..."

William Barnes

Chilfrome, Holy Trinity Church:

Thanks to Bill, for leading the walk on Thursday, and to fellow-walker
 Sheila, for recommending the snowdrops at Chilfrome!
