Evening light on the reservoirs. I set off in good time to see the sunset on top.

Stile & Sunset

Ah well. I get to the top in 20 minutes only to see distant clouds spoiling the show. The bank of cloud on the left of the photo covered the UK the following day (Weds) bringing a little rain and much greyness.

The End

I nearly always park next to the tree, but they've cut the tree down! Why?

Time taken: 1hrs 2mins over about 3 miles.

Route: Shortest route from the road, up the steps on the right and down the gentler slope on the left.
