Now I know the cold weather is here again but today in south west England it was still pretty warm. Well at least I thought it was as i walked up the lane towards the turning for Brent Hill, when I reached the summit it started to hail, quite a lot as well. I guess it looks as though the weather guys and gals could be right and we are headed for another blast from Siberia. Still it is always good to be back here, I like South Brent as a village and this hill is easily accessible from the A38. Now last time I was here there were some signs up showing you where the permissive path goes and how it loops around this hill. Well now they’ve gone, probably taken down by the farmer, the path from the north is the easiest route up and a climb over the now padlocked gate gets you to the summit. You just follow the grassy path down the other side to the road to the south west of the hill, and back into South Brent. This would be a great walk for a summers evening, when it eventually comes!!!
