Great Day for a walk, not raining, not hot, not cold just a bit grey. The day didn't start the greatest due to some road range, sign language and a burst of anger. So relaxing in the hills was the best antidote! Earlier in the year I did a 10 mile walk from Barton-Le-Clay round Pegsdon and back again along the Ickneild Way. Needing a few more hills, I decided to follow the same walk with but with a walk up the Pegsdon Hills and back down again. This side 'loop' had no other reason than to climb a hill, it makes no logical route sense and didn't get me any 'further' away.
The first 3 miles is along the base of the escarpment (that makes it sound higher!) following the John Bunyan Trail. It's pretty flat countryside, with the added bonus of the Hexton Tea rooms. A cross between a tea room, gift shop and bring and buy sale. As it was only 1.5 miles into the walk I couldn't really stop, plus I'm on a diet, plus it was shut!
