Lavenham and backroads to Semer

Dead tree in pond near Semer Gate Farm, 4 years later
I decided to record a short trip, following back roads, between the pretty Suffolk village of Lavenham and the site of the first pic I uploaded to geograph of a dead tree in a pond near Semer.

Nature Trail Map
I had visited the Danbury Ridge Nature Reserves on a few occasions, and attempted to follow the Nature Trail. I quite enjoyed loosing the trail and getting lost, but thought it might be an interesting project to try and complete the trail in sequence and record it in geographs so that anyone visiting for the first time could find their way round. Getting to the start It might be helpful to print out a map of the walkPhoto. The entrance is off Runsell Lane, Danbury, just opposite...
