Last morning in Wells. A walk over Shapwick Heath to see more ducks and a perfectly camouflaged reed bunting. Also an old peat-cutter’s hut.
Then a look at the site of the almost 6,000-year-old wooden trackway (the Sweet trail, named after the peat-cutter who discovered it) for prehistoric humans to cross the marshes. It was made by driving wooden poles in a V shape into the peat and laying wooden planks at the intersections. Nowadays it’s just a pleasant woodland path and – to quote Kipling – “you would never know”.
