Sunday morning I went Nordic walking from outside the Bell Inn in Odell, through river meadows beside the river Ouse, the Harrold Country Park and finally climbing the hill to have a wonderful view of the village and valley below and then into Great Odell Wood. Odell church has links to the USA as a previous rector, Peter Baulkley, fell out with Archbishop Laud in 1635 and took some of his flock off to New England where he founded Concord.

So each chair was painted a different colour, except the armchairs, which were both painted terracotta because I had plenty of this colour. I really have to give them all a second coat but I have run out of energy, so this will be done at a later date If there is any paint leftover I shall do my shed door!!
