Spring is sprung on the Bradford Road at Rudloe on 22nd April 2018

It's just a month since we were in the depths of winter (see Biddestone - Mar 2018) but here we are with spring springing after a warm spell and the hottest April day (29 degrees) for almost seventy years (1949 - I remember it well). Evidence of this springing spring is shown in the following photos taken in Bradford Road, Leafy Lane and at the brow of Box Hill on 22nd April 2018.

Treetops in Bradford Road - thanks to speculative, greenfield development, the trees at right will be gone later this year
