Cherry Green


Turning off the old Roman road of Back Lane just before it peters out at its eastern end, there’s a track up through the green of Cherry Green, the hamlet lying beyond this house. The green was uncut hayfield.

At the top of the track, a disused gatepost is adorned with an antique, roughly made horse shoe, an ancient symbol of luck as long as it a displayed this way up so the luck doesn’t drop out.
