Breedon Church Linear Walk

  • Walked: 25 December 2007
  • Distance: 4m
  • Terrain: A Decent climb, some fields, some road.
  • Summary: Starting from the Severn Trent Car Park by Dimminsdale, walk along the road (uphill). Turn left at the junction and then right towards Scotland Farm. The church is in view at this point; head straight for it. The footpaths that cross the fields and the golf course are well marked with yellow wayposts.
  • Time: 2hrs hours start to finish
  • Notable views: From Breedon Hill.

Christmas day was pretty dull weatherwise, but the sun did come out in the afternoon. At least, half of the sky was bright blue and sunny, the other half was a dirty grey, as if I were right underneath a weather front.

This is the first couple of miles of my 3-viewpoints walk. With limited time, it makes a good linear walk in its own right.

It was 3pm when I decided to set off, and the sun was already very low in the sky.

The evening light was very warm in colour, turning everything orange.

These two show that mysterious weather front, which didn't move at all during my walk.

I've photographed the church lots of times before, but always from the same side. Here's a different view. It shows the power station in the background, which was the source of the large cloud noted earlier.

What a splendid way to spend Christmas, Pea!
And wow! What a brilliant new feature you've written in to your map! I tried the photo links and they work perfectly. Brilliant!
