New Bras in Horringer!

In bra, Horringer, Horringer Farm, Ickworth Park, Stephen King on January 8, 2006 at 7:24 pm

Week to Date mileage 38

Month to date mileage 44

Average Monthly rate 166

Weather: Cold damp and grey



I was feeling a little tired as I set out for this run up to Ickworth Park via Horringer. I have had a good week as far as the mileage goes and including today’s run 38 miles represents my best total since September 2005.

I didn’t really expect to see anymore bras in the trees at Horringer. My last run this way on the 26th December saw an additional few plus a chair in the trees. Today the folks of Horringer if it is them didn’t disappoint (if it is them?) and there was a new white and red one plus half a pink one. There was also a grey sock just one no sign of the other.

It does remind me a bit of that Stephen King book I can’t think of the title but the one where all the telegraph lines are draped in trainers. Anyway it is all good fun and I am not sure when it will end but I will continue to report it as I see it as vital bra news from Horringer.

My run actually went very well and I felt very comfortable. I ran past Ickworth House down to the lake and then continued on the path past what I think are the White Houses. It certainly is a lovely thatched house and I had to take a picture.

Weather: cool but not cold slight drizzle a little fog.

For Boxing day I thought I would do a long run and try a regular course, which anyone who views this blog, will know from previous entries that strange things can happen in the village of Horringer.

I wasn’t to be disappointed sure enough there was a further bra in a tree this time a bright blue one. The bright purple flowery one was still there but no sign of the red one which has either been taken down or blown away? Curious, perhaps it is the time of year or may be some kind of fertility ritual performed in the village of Horringer and only there? Unless of course anyone else has seen this elsewhere. Maybe there is a network around the country or all over the world of bra tree hangers.

Seeing a bra in a tree in Horringer doesn’t surprise me anymore, I have come to expect it. Imagine my surprise though when I spotted a new addition a folding chair in a tree! Totally broken of course and very high up this tree . Well that’s different! I wonder if it is the same people who are responsible? Is there a connection between the broken folding chair and the 3 different bras? What kind of message are they trying to send out? To be honest this spot is fairly isolated and only frequented in the main by farmers and dog walkers.

Oh well, I will continue to look at for further developments on things in trees in Horringer next year.

I continued on in to Ickworth Park , past the house , gardens and lake. Near the lake there seems to be several paths that I am not familiar with but will explore next year. I chose a path running slightly uphill over a cattle grid which took me through Downters Wood and on to Chevington Field Plantation. There were a handful of houses here in the middle of the wood and virtually no sound it was so quiet. I wasn’t so sure if I was on private land so I returned home by the same course for a good 12 miles.

Horringer & The Abbey Gardens

Weather: Dry weak sunshine.

I decided to run out to Ickworth Park but changed my mind as the section I have to run on road beyond Horringer Farm was too busy with cars.

Instead I double backed on myself and got another surprise. Another bra has appeared in the trees at Horringer Farm this time a bright red one. There was no sign of the previous one which I photographed on Sunday. Very curious obviously bras grow on trees!

I ran up to Hardwick Heath and then down to Bury Rugby Club at the Haberden. Went along by the River Lark and into the Abbey Gardens. If you visit Bury St Edmunds you can walk among the ruins of a once great Benedictine Abbey. One of my photos shows the ruins and beyond St Edmundsbury Cathedral. Bury’s cathedral was originally the parish church of St James. Building works were completed this year on the tower. The cathedral dates from 1503 so it has only taken 502 years to complete.

The Abbey Gate with the portcullis dates from the middle of the 14th century. The original gate was destroyed by poor Bury folks in 1327 on an attack on the rich inhabitants of the abbey which resulted in the Abbot being kidnapped.

Bra in a tree

In bra on December 5, 2005 at 6:17 pm


Every picture tells a story. Well what is the story behind this one?

Whilst out for my run yesterday I spotted this in a tree. I just had to stop and take a picture as it is not every day you see a bra in a tree.

I looked around but the owner was no one where to be spotted unfortunately.

Why would anyone deposit their bra in a tree?

Have you spotted anything unusual when you have been on a run?

Lets have your best suggestions as to the possible story of the bra in a tree!
