We stood above everyone else in the county at about 2.45 this afternoon, when we gazed out from Abdon Burf on Brown Clee, Shropshire’s highest point (1772 feet, or 540m). It’s a good place to be on an afternoon like this – positively springlike, it would be a crime to stay indoors. It’s quiet too – despite being school half-term week, we saw just four other people while we walked. Wonderful!

J > Remember it well : that night (late 1998, I think) was spent at the youth hostel (run by the guy that had set it up before the WWII) a couple of miles to the SE : is it still in operation?
I’d guess that would be Wheathill – according to Wikipedia, it closed in 1998… Must have been some night!
