Having had my pacemaker fitted on 28th October and struggled with a bad back since, I was suffering from cabin fever, so persuaded the very patient Mrs Pickwell to drive me to Nettleton Wood to catch the last of the autumn colour. The less said about the back pain during our walk the better. The woods were looking stunning, although the avenue of beeches along the drive to the scout camp were past their best. There were still a few fungi but the fly agarics and amethyst deceivers appeared to have finished.
