Another year another wednesday !
This week Gloucestershire was our target with the hope of a sort of ridge walk .Starting at Wotton under edge and quickly heading up Tor hill with great views towards the Bristol Channel and beyond.
The track was very muddy a better summer or dry spring walk i think
With A Great looking mossy stonewall on left continuing along must be old Roman road toward Goose Green Communications Tower
Built in1963 taking 9 months to complete with tunnels underneath area and main dishes pointing towards GCHQ Maybe GOV. listen post ? BT Phone Masts dominate now .
A Alpaca in farm
Then down a very steep track towards Marlees Brook past horses and out on to open fields lined with forest either side .Stopped by Brook and i saw a Water Vole!
Buzzards And Raven soaring overhead here.
Then After Travelling along the worst footpath of the year !!! Woodland,muddy,45 degree angle TO LONG!
We Came to Boxwell Court Lake Nice,Although now its raining !
Its said that Walter Raleigh used to own house belonging to lake.
Then after a break here up hill towards to top of our ridge walk WINDY
