The final ascent to Chase End Hill was hard. GF assessed hi route-planning and realised he was luck to have one from north to south, so that the end of the walk had the lowere hills. As he gaxed up at the trig. point a few tens of feet above him he thought it was actually receding.
Crossing those last few feet felt like a huge achievement.
It was all downhill (so to speak) from her on.
Looking west from Chase End Hill, Eastnor Castle could be seen in the distance. It looked well worth a detour one day to have a look around
