Terrain

This is basically a ‘there and back’ walk up a surfaced lane along a ridge, terminating at the end of the surfaced section. The highest point is 37 metres above sea level. However, the views are extensive – the gradients are gradual, nowhere steep. Remaining roads are fairly quiet and road crossings straightforward.
