On Thursday, 3rd March, 2016, a bright clear day afforded us lovely views from the top of Burrough Hill. As we neared the summit, very slippery conditions under foot made us be very careful. Progress was slow as we picked our way along the County Road where four wheel drive vehicles had caused huge ruts on the surface of this ancient highway. We walked through the wood on the north slopes of the hill before joining a sheep track which took us to the summit.

Our return route was via Moscow farm along narrow lanes and field roads. All returned safely to the “Royal Oak” public house for our lunch.
