Just a quick post showing some of the views from Gray Hill (Gray’s Hill according to some), which is my local hill on which I have spent innumerable days as a child and an adult. Its only 900feet at its highest point but it nestles beside Wentwood Forest and Wentwood Reservoir. Views from here on a good day are fantastic, taking in both Severn Bridges, the Severn Estuary and vast swathes of rolling hillsides and fields to the North. Its also another great little bivvy spot I have been known to frequent
I am very lucky in that this hill and the surrounding area including the reservoir and forest is but 3 miles walk from my house. Ok, so the area is not spectacular in terms of towering peaks etc but it is beautiful and even now I will go there for a short walk or even a run if I am feeling energetic. Even the kids like it.
I didnt quite fully appreciate what was on my doorstep until I moved away to Burton for 18months but now that I am back home, its like finding treasure.
