A green thought in a green shade

28 May

As I’m sitting here it’s been raining more or less continuously for a day with another day’s worth waiting to come in off the North Sea. Still if it didn’t rain ever this place would soon disappear. The land around Driffield is pretty leaky with lots of springs where the rain that’s percolated through the chalky Yorkshire Wolds spurts out. The Keld (from the Scandinavian/Viking for spring) is one such water hole that used to be part of a water powered mill. The whole area is now protected as part of the Millennium Greens project and is well worth searching out (it’s not well sign posted).
