Dig out your wellington boots and enjoy the fresh air of the Herefordshire countryside at the National Trust Brockhampton Estate this weekend.

There are six walking routes on the estate suitable for all ages and abilities and during the winter months when the trees are bare, wildlife is more visible than at any other time of the year.
There will also be a Welly-Wanging competition.

Welly Wanging is a British folk sport requiring competitors to throw their Wellington boots as far as possible and is now a world-wide competitive phenomenon with a set of regulated rules from the World Welly Wanging Association.

You can also pick up a free copy of the '50 things to do before you are 11 ¾' booklet and see what adventures can be had at Brockhampton Estate.

Drivers have been photographed parked on double yellow lines outside of a fire station in Leominster in Herefordshire.

The team at the station posted this tweet earlier this afternoon, to make motorists aware that anyone blocking the road can make it hard for their engines to manoeuvre, especially if they have to leave in an emergency.

Fire crews hope other drivers will be more considerate. Credit: HWFire Leominster
