photoblog image Beacon Hill, Leicestershire 4/5

Beacon Hill, Leicestershire 4/5

Beacon Hill is one of the highest points in Leicestershire and is just a few miles from Loughborough. It has excellent views out to Nottingham, Derby and the Peak district Hills.  A lunchtime picnic and walk in June allowed me to take this series of images.

 

Looking East through the trees from one flank of the hill one can see for miles across the Leicestershire countryside. The buildings in the distance are the villages of Sileby and Mountsorrel and past them the hills lead away towards the Melton Mowbray area.

For me there is something familiar about this scene ;-)

You can see its relative height here, Brian. Looks to be a lovely place to linger in the shade of the trees yet gaze out across part of the Empire!
Brian Walbey: It is a very nice place Alan particularly for those of us who are retired and can go in the week when the screaming hordes are at work or school.
A beautiful vista framed nicely by the trees, great shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks George.
that looks really lovely there, well captured, what a nice photo
Brian Walbey: It is nice Derek, thanks for your comment.
Idyllic country scene, we're lucky to have places like this left to explore
Brian Walbey: It is really nice country and only a few miles from Leicester and Loughborough, we are lucky to have this place to go to.
This looks a beautiful place for a picnic, and captured so well by you. love the way the trees frame your pic.
