Two colour varieties of comfrey appear in the lanes around Steyning. These are rather late examples this year.

The white variety seems more common than the purple variety around Steyning.

Poultices of the leaves are supposed to promote healing of cuts and even broken bones.

These pictures were taken in Kings Barns Lane near Foxhall Farm.

I could not resist taking a picture of the very late flowering bramble nearby.

Where do I Walk?

Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
