From Tepee to Tree House

It's been a long while since we've walked at The Thames Chase Forest Centre, this morning we were up early and went off with Betsy to meet Becky and James for a walk. The morning was bright sunny a lovely and warm, with not a cloud in the sky, although there were a few cars in the car park we saw a couple of dog walkers and a jogger. Betsy had fun running about,  James and Becky explored the children's play areas that have been constructed since our last visit (just as well there were so few people about).

James climbed up inside the tree house and took some photo's of the traffic on the M25, this lovely open space is very close to that busy motorway so if you are ever driving along the M25 heading for the Dartford crossing have a look for the tree house it can be seen from the road, especially if your stuck in a traffic jam approaching the QEII bridge!

There were lots of these on the bushes we couldn't decide if they were sloes, anyone know? We finished our walk with a coffee, sitting in the sun and chatting.  A nice way to start the weekend.........


  1. What fun! If the bushes had large thorns on then yes they are sloes, if not then they're probably wild damsons (hard to see if there are thorns on your photo).

  2. You really need to take Becky and James to Jimmy's Farm. They'll love building the tree houses there and then when you've all had enough you can stop by his shop and take some very good sausages home for tea!

    1. Jacqueline, James would think he was in heaven, acting like a six year old and sausages for tea!
