|Description ||Beautifully restored windmill at Aythorpe Roding|
We haven't received any landscape photographs for ages - hence this offering.
We may not have any megalithic tombs, stone circles or standing stones in Essex, but we do have assorted barrows, eleven henges and half a dozen cursus. We also have one of the oldest wooden carvings of a man - the Dagenham Idol. The earliest of all Britons made flint tools at Clacton more than 3-200,000 years ago and also left us the only surviving wooden artifact from the British Lower Palaeolithic - a yew spear point.
We may have a giant, obscene airport, too many roads, factories, housing estates and people, but we do have some wonderful old buildings in a beautiful, but horribly threatened landscape.
|Outstanding picture Thorngrim, what an incredible contrast between the sky and the windmill.|
|Thanks, Nicola. The combination of low sunshine on a light coloured building or stone set against dark clouds is something I can never resist|
