I posted on the blog today about getting out into the countryside and my recent stay near Saffron Walden. Since getting home I've been inspired to explore beyond the town centre and today's run took me out into the Oxfordshire countryside with these beautiful views all around. What the photo doesn't convey particularly well is the hills though - I wondered why I was feeling so tired until I looked around!! . . . . . #countryside #fields #farmland #oxfordshire #oxon #lovetheoutdoors…

Saffron Walden - In the medieval period the primary trade was in wool and a guild hall was built by the wool-staplers in the marketplace. It was demolished in 1847 and replaced by a corn exchange. In the 16th and 17th centuries the saffron crocus (Crocus sativus) was widely grown, thanks to the town's favourable soil and climate. The flower was precious, as the extract from the stigmas was used in medicines, as a condiment, in perfume, as an aphrodisiac, and as an expensive yellow dye.
