It is both, it is Old Down (not Odd Down) sports club and is about 20 miles NW of Bath. I'll give you the point as I said you were literally only one letter out and didn't need to specify where it was near as it is in Old Down near Tockington. You'll have to let us know how you worked it out now as that was a pretty impressive shot.

On local duties now we can't travel, this is the private staff path to Brent Cross station.

Um ... I don't know how I worked it out. I may have seen pictures of Odd Down at some time in my life or have been there. I was in England when I was young. Odd Down is a semi-memorable name so it probably stuck somewhere in the dark, cobwebby reaches of my brain. "Old Down" sounds like it is from a Stephen Foster song, which wouldn't fit for a picture of someplace in England.

Nice one, cool looking bird.

I've had a downy woodpecker at my feeder everyday for weeks now.

All the wallflowers in my mum's garden. Actually I should ask her to post the one of the back as it was her idea.

Very nice. I'm back to the local places now I haven't been to much for a while. The brook in Finchley.

And more paths, the one that runs along it for miles, sometimes using a bit of road before returning off road. It is generally for cycles to share and I must have walked most of it during my life along the rivers from Barnet back here.

Nice old church that nobody uses anymore. There are quite a few in town like that now.

The reservoir and park almost opposite me. My father used to take me there as a baby.

A friendly swan on the reservoir. Despite signs everywhere people insist on coming with large bags of food and feeding all the birds on it every day.

I made a lovely online video the other side of the park but the program went down. I didn't take photos as the video was on but could have made stills. You can't win them all so here is the first side.
