I’ve just been installed as the vicar of the Polden Wheel in Somerset, which is a recently-formed group of six churches (comprising Ashcott, Burtle, Catcott, Chilton Polden, Edington and Shapwick).
This blog has evolved a bit since it started, with most of the posts being about either faith (as a follower of Jesus) or nature (as a birdwatcher and photographer). It’s not a diary – much of my work is not bloggable, either because it is mundane or inappropriate for a blog, so what I write about tends to emphasise spare time activities like holiday trips and birdwatching.
I started the blog in 2009 when I went up to vicar factory in Durham, as a way to keep in contact with friends, so the name came because I was then living almost on the banks of the River Wear. Here in the Somerset Levels, much of the land is re-claimed marsh; the nearest river is probably South Drain, which is not the most romantically named stretch of water in the area…
