After a couple of days visiting the rivers of the area, we thought it was about time we went up a bit higher again. Walking on the hills is something that always lifts my spirits, which have certainly got a little wet lately. So Friday, we decided to take the dogs for a walk on the Clent Hills.
The Clents are just over 13 miles north west from home. The Malverns can easily be seen from the top, and on a clear day, stunning views can be had of the Cotswolds and even as far away as the Black Mountains of Wales.
I never seem to visit the Clents as often as the other hills local to us, being on the outskirts of Birmingham and The Black Country, it’s been known to get quite crowded up there on a warm sunny day, but venturing up there on an overcast weekday, I found myself asking why I didn’t do it more often.
Yes! I really must make more effort to visit these hills.
