Common Hill

The commonest things on this hill were wind turbines. Lots of them. Thus it was an easy stroll up and down the Hagshaw Hill Wind Farm's service road from an outdoor centre near Douglas.

The trig point at which the above 'selfie' (I've been taking lessons from Gayle) was taken didn't look like the highest point, so we roamed around the summit in a squall that eased as soon as we moved on.

8 km with about 250 metres ascent took us an hour and a half. We had a flask and sandwiches. It was more refreshing than stopping at a service station on our 300 mile journey.

Nice part of the country that. Looks a bit chilly.
