Stroll/roll: my partner strolls, I roll, on my mobility scooter
The lovely summer weather, combined with a little bit of energy, led to us deciding to take a fairly local stroll/roll today. We ventured over to Lightwood, which is about a mile, as the crow flies, from our place.
It’s wonderful to feel that even a couple of miles from the centre of Sheffield, you are totally in the countryside.
I enjoyed checking out some of the wildflowers and came across the following…
I didn’t actually ID the tree. I was more enamored of the shapes and colour.
I also made friends with a cow.
And another cow. Who suddenly decided to come closer! I carefully backed my scooter away…
Lightwood is just off the Southern ring-road (near Norton Lees) and it’s a quiet-ish dead end tarmac road, so good for using a mobility scooter/wheelchair upon. There are plenty of safe and non-intrusive spaces you can park a car along the lane and to unload/reload your mobility device. The few cars that came along were polite about going past (i.e. they slowed down and actually took care). And a shout out to the Moss Valley Meats driver who patiently waited for me to get up to a bit of off road space instead of forcing me into the nettles and wild carrot (ouch!) where the road was too thin to really allow passing. Cheers mate.
It was great to spend a little time in the countryside without having to drive very far. Definitely worth a return stroll/roll.
