A couple of days off work and a chance to head out for a walk in an area that I don’t visit enough. In fact I haven’t been to Fernworthy Reservoir before. I parked a bit nearer to the Warren House pub than I planned, I meant to park by the bridge over the Walla Brook but drove right past!!. This meant a much longer walk back to the track up Merripit Hill along the roadside. Showers caught me on the top of Merripit, but still it was better than working!
