Suddenly I find that I only have twenty three more days of this project to run. Something that had started out as a burden, turned into an exciting challenge and is now nearly over. I shall miss it but am already thinking about other projects for next year.
One thing I will be doing over the last three weeks is to show you a little more of the place I live and some of the places I visit, particularly the places I walk.
Today’s photo is of Kelston Tump viewed across the valley from the hill behind our house. You won’t find it on the Ordinance Survey map because there it’s called Kelston Round Hill but the locals call it the Tump, which is a local word for a prominent rounded hill. The Cotswold Way long distance walk passes in front of it and there is a permissive footpath to the top from where there are wonderful views across the Severn Estuary into Wales and up river towards Gloucester. We like to walk to the Tump because it is mostly on an old farm track that is not too muddy.
