A few nice photos from a couple of walks on Coppet Hill by the river Wye and Garway Hill in South Herefordshire:

 

TJS does drama classes on Saturday mornings at Goodrich so with 2 hours to kill you can just about take in a 5 mile walk down by the river and along the fine high level ridge that is Coppet Hill. Photos from a couple of days, one on a warm hazy day and one with a glorious clear spell after a vicious shower. Previous visit can be found here

Garway Hill a fine spot for a short stroll as you can park on it’s upper slopes. This day was incredibly windy and after poor weekend of rain we stole out in a brief spell of sunshine for some fresh air. Previous walk from last year is here

  1. Love the photo of them all looking deliriously happy, sat on the bench…….

  2. The views from both walks are so expansive. I like the moody view from Coppet Hill (for some reason I always hear Peter Gabriel singing ‘Salisbury Hill’ when I think about Coppet Hill) with the showers evident in the distance. When we were talking last week about walks in Limestone country, I could see what you meant about the hills in your neck of the woods being, I can’t remember how you phrased it, but I think the gist was bleak moorland, but the views of the patchwork of fields and woods in the valleys are stunning.

    • You need some variety I think and that cracking walk we did last week reminded me of the joy if rivers, gorges, stone walled fields and wild flowers. I do love my local hills but they are a little “samey”. I need to head down to the waterfalls area which has some limestone scenery similar to the Dales
