Long Mynd in October

We’re into the darkest four months – there’s little sunshine in the deep valleys of the Long Mynd, but it’s great on the top, given a decent day – and this was a decent day. In fact it was much better than that – bright (and directional) sunshine, clear air, a cool breeze – what more could one ask? The night’s rain was rushing down the valley below the Light Spout waterfall, but the paths on top were generally good – just the odd soggy corner…

I walked to the highest point of the Long Mynd, at Pole Bank, then headed back along the ridge south of Townbrook Valley to descend on easy grassy slopes. A bank of cloud had been sitting stubbornly over the Mynd for the last half-hour or so, clearing (inevitably) as I dropped into the shade of the hills.
