Those who pay attention to these matters may have noticed that I've not contributed very much to this blog, this year. The reason for this is that I haven't been walking on the hill as often as I used to - and the reason for that is that I spent some time riding down Memory Lane on my trike (click Trixie category to the right for details).
Based on what our New England cousins are experiencing, it seems possible that the Indian summer Old England has enjoyed recently might come to an end soon; so, this morning, I spent a while strolling along some of the local lanes before the really bad weather arrives.
Interestingly, walking might be the safest means of travel around these parts because some of the potholes were quite dangerous (see below - click on photo to enlarge). Heaven knows how bad the roads will become when winter really sets in.
However bad the roads might become, it's unlikely to stop people visiting the hill. It's a popular place for walkers and - for that reason - a number of car parking areas have been established. Here's one of them......
As can be seen, there were only about half-a-dozen cars in the park at the time I took this photo (above). In other words, there's plenty of room. Unfortunately, however, it seems that occasional, mindless, mountain-bikers aren't the only inconsiderate people who visit the area. Below is another photo I took within minutes of the one shown above. The vehicle has been abandoned (I won't say parked) in a passing space directly opposite the clearly-signed car park. What an idiot!
