Hereford hills

We’re visiting Croft, in the north-western corner of Herefordshire, for a walk on its forested ridge, past the hill fort at Croft Ambrey and out to the furthest corner of Bircher Common. The ancient chestnuts (many of them dead or moribund) in the parkland are amazing; in the forest a number of live trees have been felled by February’s storms. The views from this moderately elevated country are tremendous – extensive to the east and wonderful to the west, where the Welsh border hills provide a most attractive skyline on this fine day.
