a quiet moment

Taking a stroll behind the barns belonging to the neighbouring farm the other evening I noticed this view of Trencrom Hill which is a perfect place to go to when seeking peace and quiet. From this view it looks to be practically in my garden, which now makes me wonder if all the large stones in my garden are actually part of the ancient iron-age hill fort or bits of the huge natural outcrops that have rolled down the hill.

not a soul in sight

(there is a public footpath along here although it is not well signed. I know that because on our deeds it originally passed through what is now our conservatory – fortunately our conveyancer noticed that and got it altered before our purchase went through)

    A perfect midsummer moment.

      Would have been nice to be up there for the sunset, except there wasn’t one. There may have been people in the morning though.

  2. Suzanne says:

    I love the UK countryside walks that zigzag over farms and public spaces.

    1. Heyjude says:

      I’m not keen on the over farms bit!

  3. pommepal says:

    The birds seem to be enjoying the view as well

    1. Heyjude says:

      Lots of corvids and seagulls at the moment.

      1. pommepal says:

        Noisy things….

        1. Heyjude says:

          They can be. Usually the seagulls stay in the towns where they are better fed 😉

  4. Phew, that was fortunate. Lucky your conveyancer did such a great job. How beautiful to look out on this view every day.

    1. Heyjude says:

      The path had been moved some years ago but the council hadn’t signed it off.

  5. Joanne Sisco says:

    It does look very close … and a lovely place for a quiet walk. How far is it actually?

    1. Heyjude says:

      5 minutes walk via the lane and stile, NOT across the field which usually has bullocks in.

      1. Joanne Sisco says:

        5 minutes does make it practically in your backyard!!

        1. Heyjude says:

          It takes a little longer to get to the top 😂

    It would have been hilarious to imagine you sitting in your conservatory as a line of keen ramblers walked through, exercising their right to use that public footpath! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Heyjude says:

      That wouldn’t be a quiet moment!

    2. Sue says:

      You do like to stir things up, Pete!!

  7. Oh I laughed at the idea of a footpath through your conservatory! You could have made a few quid and sold teas and ice creams to the ramblers. And plant cuttings!

    1. Heyjude says:

      That thought did cross our minds 😂

      1. Sue says:

        Not hard work, then! 😂

  8. Sue says:

    How fab to have that hill so near

    1. Heyjude says:

      Just a shame we can’t actually see it (or the sea) from our house.

      1. Sue says:

        Ah, OK…

  9. Lynn says:

    How lovely to have this view practically in your backyard!

  10. Amy says:

    Thank you, Jude for sharing the beautiful view from your backyard with us.
