Treasure Chest Thursday: Postcard Book Page 13 Can you solve the riddle?

Here is the latest page in the postcards series and we're up to page 13.

The top postcard was sent in 1907 to Nurse Hogg and is from Sister R - possibly someone she worked with? It depicts the Longstone Rocks, Mottistone on the Isle of Wight which is now owned by the National Trust.

The next postcard shows a picture of Tintern Abbey in Wales taken from Chapel Hill. Interestingly the postmark on the back of the card shows that it was actually posted in Clacton-on-Sea.

The final card shows Swiss Cottage, Cassiobury Park, Watford.

On the back of the card is a riddle - can you get the answer?

Up and down the road it goes or over fields instead
Nothing of its body shows it travels on it's head
What is it?
