SK5014 : Beacon Hill

near to Woodhouse Eaves, Leicestershire, Great Britain

Beacon Hill
Beacon Hill
The popular "highest hill" in Leicestershire, it is actually out topped by Bardon Hill, but the lack of quarrying and easy access makes Beacon Hill a favourite, and it is often erroneously given the title in print. The summit is a series of hornstone crags, probably the slipperiest, most easily polished stone ever climbed upon. The surrounding country park is a welcome and expanding island in the keepout sign infested Charnwood Forest.
I used to be lucky to live within running distance of here.
