Through the Gate

Becky (the Queen of Squares) is dipping her toes back into blogging this month and encouraging us to get outside and take a few steps each day during November to help survive those endless grey days. And to share a photo or two while we are at it. Square of course.

Although going to and from my house means using the same lane (in either direction) it is a case of deciding on which hill to negotiate on the day. Living where I do means that no matter where I go there will be some kind of incline involved, unless I stay quite close! This week we’re going on the Brunnion loop.

A different side to Trencrom Hill. It doesn’t look very high from here, but you go downhill before you reach the base. The bracken is a lovely reddish-brown now.

    Is there a stile, or can you open the gate? Love the bracken and it’s multi colours. Happy Sunday, Jude!

    1. Heyjude says:

      No stile and gate is chained. There is a public footpath close by that actually leads to behind our house, but it’s all overgrown at this end and there are usually cattle in the fields so we have never used it.

  2. I think this walk is deceptive and looks easier than it is.

    1. Heyjude says:

      No way onto the hill from this point.

  3. margaret21 says:

    That gate looks a nightmare to climb/open.

    1. Heyjude says:

      There’s no access here, you have to continue down hill to reach the tracks onto the hill.

      1. margaret21 says:

        That explains it then.

  4. It is a lovely area.

    1. Heyjude says:

      Except for farm vehicles (of which there are a lot) it is fairly peaceful.

    Great gate 🙂

    1. BeckyB says:

      bit smaller than yours!

      1. bushboy says:

        Yes a bit. If I made one gate it would be the same size. Bigger gates are harder to open and close

    2. Heyjude says:

      and great gatepost!

      1. bushboy says:

        A complimentary deal

    After living ‘on the flat’ in Norfolk for 10 years, I can well-imagine that hill feels like a considerable climb.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Heyjude says:

      It’s not too bad if you choose the right track up to the top i.e. NOT the one directly from the car park! Of course by the time you get there you are already substantially higher than sea level.

  7. BeckyB says:

    does that gate ever get opened?!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Looks like there is a metal gate behind the wooden one so I would say, with difficulty. Can’t say I have ever seen any animals in this field, but I suspect it may belong to the dairy so there might be another access point.

  8. Love the rusty colours and the tumbledown gate.
