169936Photo #169936Rea Valley Route at Cannon Hill Park - Cycling past the Fairground

Location: Cannon Hill Park, Selly Park (England, UK)

A Sunday morning walk around Cannon Hill Park.

Forecast was rain, it later started to lightly rain, before it got heavier. As usual beginning and ending at the car park near Holders Lane.


Cycling past the Fairground. Plus runners and dog walkers. Path ahead was behind resurfaced.

The Rea Valley Route.

The later rain didn't stop people doing their normal activities.
