That looks like a grand time!

I especially like the rock wall. Do you know more of the story? Was it only a retaining wall against the hillside for the road? Or was something else there once?

I guess I'm lucky to live here :P

The tale goes that he would block the forest road with fallen trees and snatch up unwary travelers as they clambered over his obstacles. His tactic was so successful that travelers eventually avoided the woods altogether and he resorted to preying on the local villages.

That I didn't know, I'll have to go more careful next time :lol:

your guess is correct, it's a retaining wall against the bank, the road that once passed through it has almost completely been claimed by the trees - I guess people must have stopped using it because of the troll I've now learnt of :mrgreen: , now that part of the woods is a long way from the nearest track and I often wonder how many people even know of the old roads existence, I once searched a map from 60 years ago out of curiosity and it wasn't marked
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
