Didcot stone snakes

I’m a little behind the times with this post. Over lockdown stone snakes appeared on Ladygrove, Great Western Park and Cockcroft Road. I’ve finally got around to visiting them and thought I’d share some of the stones that have caught my eye.

I probably should have visited earlier as some designs have faded in the recent rain but there’s still plenty to see. Except for the stones that are hiding.

If you’d like to visit the stone snakes you’ll find them around Boundary Park on GWP and beside the mound on Ladygrove.
