    farther on ...

    Hi

    A woman was going back home through the fields. She took a detour through the fields.

    Towards the end of her detour she passed quite close to the edge of the wood
    where Puddler Pond lay, and farther on she was near
    enough to have seen, had it been daylight, the back of her
    own house.

    It doesn't say that she passed the edge of the wood where the Pond was but that she walked/passed close to it?

    Also: Does it say that she went further and from there, if it was daylight, she could her own home?

    Re: farther on ...

    She walked close to the edge of the wood but not into it, and carried on. As it was dark, she couldn't see the back of her own house, but she was near it as she would have been able to see it in the light.
