Nice Forest Walk
by Aidy  2 Oct 2015
A pleasant walk along the forest track mentioned by Simon 3 with some good views. The trig was almost hidden beside the trees on a high, heathery bank alongside the track. There was a sign at the entrance to the forest track saying it was reserved for members of a shooting club but I didn't encounter anyone up there.
