taken 10 years ago, near to Belvoir, Leicestershire, Great Britain

High Leys from Windsor Hill
High Leys from Windsor Hill
The Belvoir Estate has been busy planting mixed woodland and scrub on High Leys over the last few years. This view towards Old Park Wood, on the horizon, shows areas kept fairly clear between the rows of bushy planting. The high point of the land here is 145 feet above sea level. To the east it falls away to about 65 metres in the River Devon Valley, see SK8232 : Knipton Pasture, the Belvoir Estate and to the west it drops fairly quickly to about 40 metres in the Vale of Belvoir, see SK8033 : Vale of Belvoir, looking west from Belvoir Castle..
