Ansty Photos & Events 2021
1 Newly restored in 2020, Frogpond was last mapped in the 1800s but has now been restored to its former glory. 2 A rabbit in one of the many Coombe Closes on a warm July morning. 3 Footpath from 12 Acre Copse to Ansty Coombe Lane – one of several in this vicinity. 4 The common Meadow Brown butterfly – one of hundreds on a wildflower meadow above Ansty Coombe. 5. Most of the Coombe Closes are being restored to hay meadows with wild flowers and appropriate grazing. 6. Looking across the old medieval Gasson meadows towards Kings Lane. 7 A heavy shower was soon followed by bright sunshine early one morning, at the beginning of July.
This waxing gibbous phase shows the moon is well on the way to being a full moon. Photographed by Alan Hardwick, click on the image to see how he almost made a lunar landing from Ansty!
