Amy Walks: Misty Hike Up Bredon Hill

Following a successful morning completing the Leckhampton Loop the day before, Dave and I took Pepper for another walk. This time, up Bredon Hill, Worcestershire.

Starting at Bredon, we strided along the road up to Westmancote, slowly working our way upwards. Sunday morning was the ideal time to get out in the countryside and get some fresh air!

With some rather steep sections, this walk was quite hard-going for someone unfit *ahem* me *ahem*. But it made reaching the top even sweeter.

As the ground flattened out, we made our way over to the Bredon Hill tower. The weather was not working in our favour and the views were practically non-existent. But it looked atmospheric, which wasn’t a bad thing!

We meandered our way to the Elephant Rock. Having grown up near Little Comberton, at the foot of Bredon Hill, I spent many summer days in my childhood cycling up the hill with my brother or walking up with family. I have fond memories of spending time around the Elephant Rock and writing out our names using the loose rocks around. Because of this, it was wonderful to revisit somewhere that holds a place in my heart.

Having exhausted the top – and ourselves – we wandered back from where we came and down to the car; allowing ourselves last looks at the beautifully moody views around. It was gorgeous!

The three of us had a great time hiking up Bredon Hill and finished off the day with a drink at The Fox & Hounds Inn, then food, fire and a very sleepy evening at home.

Like with Leckhampton, my Huawei P20 Pro did a great job at capturing our walk and was a nice alternative to having to lug around my heavy DSLR. It was a good outing all round!
