Bunty goes to Highley

Woops you can't see the river, it's behind me.

Woops you can't see the river, it's behind me.

I have had a very exciting weekend, on Sunday I went to Highley to hop the Highley trail. The trail starts at the visitors centre and I had to hop down a gravely path to the river which is called the River Severn, then along to Stanley where I should have hopped up some steps and over the railway line, but these steps had a sign on that said CLOSED so I had to hop down the river a little bit more and then up a big hill to Highley Station, where I saw Thomas, but he had lost his face!
hello, Thomas?

hello, Thomas?

I then hopped on to the Mining Wheel sculpture which is dedicated to all the local miners. I think that miners must be very brave people, they go down big holes to dig out coal and it’s all dark and dirty. I would be very scared, and I think all the miners should get free carrots.

I hopped on through cuttings and sandstone houses into Highley where there should have been a gate to go through, but it was locked so I squeezed through the bars. Then I had a hop around Highley Church which is really pretty inside. After I came out of the church I hopped down to the village and had a look at the clock sculpture which was put up in 1999, it has a miner in a lift at the bottom and is very big!

Then it was a very long hop to Country Park Halt, I sat on the platform and took my hat, gloves and scarf off as it had got very hot. Then I heard a very loud toot toot it mad me jump and I did wonder if it was something I had done, then round the corner came a big steam train. It was very exciting, I want to have a ride on one now.

I want a go
