Inspired by a walk along on the banks of the Arle, one the famous chalk streams of Hampshire, England and close to the ancient town of Arlesford. It's crystal clear waters are temptingly thick with fat trout but forbidden to those without an equally fat wallet. As as we reach the Junction with the River Itchen a large pool forms, overhung by trees and silent except for the soft sounds of waterfowl ...thus the title 'Tranquil Waters.' One can truly then understand William Blake's description of England as "This green and pleasant land"
