Photograph of the Week

Photographed by Rex Needle
Autumn arrives in Bourne Wood

PHOTOGRAPHED ON WEDNESDAY 15th OCTOBER 2008

The days shorten and Bourne Wood is redolent of the dank smell of autumn as the leaves begin to fall and the bracken turns its seasonal shade of golden brown to remind us that another year will soon be closing. The sound of birdsong is now a rarity and apart from an odd squirrel scurrying to and fro collecting acorns to stock its larder for the coming winter, few animals are about because this is a time of preparation for hard times to come. But walkers still frequent the woodland ways for their love of the forest is undiminished by the damp and early darkness of the advancing winter and will still be seen striding out even on the coldest days to come.

Readers are asked to submit their own pictures to be considered for our
Photograph of the Week feature. Read more.

PEEPS INTO THE PAST

The railway was once an important link with Bourne and the station was situated at the Red Hall that has survived the vibrations from steam locomotives and rolling stock which ran past the building for almost 100 years.

Photographed in 1920
