Get’s Goat Part Two!

Posted by on May 18, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Tweet Hi all… Further to my other post about things getting my goat, well there’s more. I ventured up onto Winter Hill, on what was a rather breezy Sunday morning, just out for a few hours to help with the lager excess from the night before. Made my way onto Belmont Road heading for Noon Hill, and the ridge path up to the “aerial farm” @ Winter Hill summit. In the distance I could see and hear some prat with his off road motorbike tearing up the hillside! Now given the signage that has appeared regarding the use of mechanically propelled vehicles, within the access...

We are free to walk and cycle and enjoy the Rivington and Winter Hill area, because the land owner allows us to, ie it’s access land.

TweetWell it’s been a while since I last posted, with work and all. Saw the weather forecast for today and thought, must get at least a quick walk in to clear the cobwebs away. So jumped in the car had a quick ride out.   It’s amazing what is 15 mins from your front door, you just need to make the effort! One disappointing aspect to my brief walk, was the amount of litter about the place, and damage to gates and the like! The area is there to be enjoyed by all, it’s a pity that a mindless few are spoiling it for everybody else, act responsibly take your litter home,...
