Ridge facing the High Vinnalls in the kink of the ridge known as the Ludlow Anticline. Looking west, in an area recently replanted with larch.
The big hill in the distance is the central area of the Radnor Forest, keen eyes can see the Black Mixen mast from here.

Bringewood :: SO4973
An ancient hunting forest on the Ludlow Anticlyne. Traditionally an oak forest, coppiced for charcoal it is now a commercial conifer wood. It is managed, but not entirely owned by the Forestry Commission.
The charcoal used to supply the iron smelters at Bringewood Forge.
Since the late 1970s the forest has been opened up to recreational use and is now quite busy, with a dense path network.
The forest carries a large herd of fallow deer including the long haired variety supposedly unique to Haye Park.
