About this deal

There are steep winding steps with no handrails to the top of the chalk face and the chalk grassland can be slippy when wet. I find the wild cherry, with bright berries and smooth leaves right by the path, but the others remain mysteries. In this instalment more than any of the previous encounters I felt Griffiths really did tap into the unspoken feelings and private longing of both Nelson and Ruth. In this book Kate’s imaginary play as Lucy to Flint’s Aslan made me chuckle as well as the fact that Ruth tells Flint what time she will be home - and yes I unashamedly do this too! In the peaceful village of Littlebury Green, just 3 miles to the west of Saffron Walden sits this former Chalk Pit set in idyllic surroundings measuring 1.

It is the above-ground, ostensibly human world, and yet it is, in a different way, otherworldly, as abrupt and open and formless as the woodland is layered and dark. Following the path is a lesson in green—the bright jewel green of maple hanging over the path, the high narrow leaves of ash, the grass underfoot, the morning glory and ivy weaving heartily through and over it all—and, this first time, an indulgence of my obsession with the delicious unknown. What have they to do with an Underground Project a megalomaniac architect wants to realize under the medieval town of Norwich? Rounding the corner of the entrance to this much larger pit is like reaching into Mary Poppins’ handbag and discovering the footprint of a medieval castle inside.Over a relatively short 3 year period there appears to be substantial improvements in numbers including our scarcer species.

Quarried from the 1800s until 1902 the site was used to supply chalk during the building of the embankment of the Beverley to Market Weighton railway line, which opened in 1865.There is a variety of habitats as plants colonise the bare chalk and different wildlife communities occur as succession takes places over time. More than any other, this is the crime fiction series that puts a spring in my step with its mixture of crime and comforting gentle humour against a backdrop of archaeological insights and a frequently fascinating police procedural element all driven by a cast who feel like old friends.

Other birds which have been seen include little owl, green woodpecker, chiffchaff and blackcap; goldcrest and long-tailed tit feed here during the winter.

I see a perfect arch of ivy inviting to a side spur—a young tree, snapped but held together by the ropes of ivy collectively thicker than the trunk. With the presence of soda lime indicating that the two victims had been drugged prior to being murdered, someone is clearly intent on keeping a far darker secret hidden.It was then heated in kilns with coal to create quicklime, The quicklime was then hydrated by adding water in a lively chemical reaction, and this made the final product, hydrated lime, which could be bagged and transported. But if my memory's just quite right - there may be much more surprises in the future awaiting Ruth and Kate, Nelson and his daughters - and especially poor Michelle. As a single mother to six-year-old Kate with married (to someone else) no-nonsense northerner DCI Harry Nelson and her isolated cottage on the breathtaking Saltmarsh Ruth is busy juggling working life with motherhood. Nature has reclaimed the site and woodland has developed; large ash trees now tower over field maples below.
