First Visit to Derrycarne Woods, 2012

Arriving. This is a vast woodland down a country lane just north of Dromod village, Co. Leitrim. So here is the sign, but we are driving deep into the wood from here ...


In the centre, a set of signs informing what is here and what was here ...


Including a picture of the house once here ... 


This is all that remains of the structure ... 


and closer up, really this is the rear courtyard.


Now some pics of the beautiful main walking path here ... 














Now a car park, this was where the main front lawn once was ...


Some intriguing tree shapes here


This is actually in a fairy ring. Can you see the gap of the henge left of the tree?


A beautiful shoreline here, so lets share some pics here ...


The beach, a great picnic area here with picnic tables scattered around too.


Dogs love it here, of course.








Steps to a viewing area folly. I do not think it is built on an ancient mound?





Plenty of fungi visible this time of year ...





Some identification signs are not easy to read, Guelder Rose, in a pretty pic scene ...


Various jetties here in various conditions ... 





Its October, so sun is setting earlier, so we stay on until it does ...





I think I will put this one into a book I am writing :-)
