Three Viewpoints again

  • Walked: 24 February 2008
  • Distance: 14m
  • Terrain: some inclines
  • Summary: Starting from the Severn Trent car park close to Dimminsdale, head for Breedon Church (first viewpoint). Via Melbourne through Robin Wood to Foremark Reservoir. Pause where the wicker Jack and Jill used to be and the abandoned car park at the South of Foremark Reservoir (second viewpoint). Back via Pistern Hill.
  • Time: 5.5 hours start to finish
  • Notable views: See above - plus the view back over South Derbyshire from the trig point just before Robin Wood.

I've walked this route a few times now. any route looks so different at different times of the year. Today was a bit dull and grey at times, but leaves and buds are starting to appear. I find this such an optimistic time of year.

The route and stats above were generated using Meander.

Woohoo! Cherry blossom and daffs!
The back garden here is one mass of plum and cherry blossom (actually, with the storm, most of it is on the ground pretending to be snow).
I LOVE that dramatic sky shot, Pea.
