The Old Ford in Late Spring

May 27, 2021

For me, the most magical place at Oldford Farm is the old Roman ford. It doesn't just change with the seasons - or even daily - it changes by the hour when the light changes, the volume of water in the river goes up or down, or the wind changes direction. It's like a magical grotto down there and I often hit the mute button on my phone and go there just to listen to the water and think. I think about the 2,000 years of history and of the people that have crossed there, and I think of what life was like for them. It's a marvellously calming antidote for the pressures of the modern world, and I heartily recommend it to our guests.
