I travelled to the first bus stop in Langold and walked along a path that goes next to an industrial state until I reached the edge of Dyscarr Wood. I then continued across the fields and down the lane to Firbeck.
The disused phonebox is now a seed bank; I saw several boxes on the floor.
At least two other black cats live at this house in the village.
I continued over to Stone and Roche Abbey.
I always enjoy the approach to the abbey from the east along the small pretty valley.
I took a slightly different route at the other side of the valley to get to Maltby Church and then walked up to the main road to catch a bus home. There are three an hour to Doncaster.
