Beacon Hill, Leicestershire 1/10

Beacon Hill is about 5 miles from us and only a short drive away up into the hills of Charnwood Forest. The park consists of over 135 hectares (330 acres) of grassland and woodland and offers recreational walking, and some short climbs. With a maximum height of 248 metres (814 ft), it is the second highest point in Leicestershire. This view from the top is looking across North West Leicestershire towards the Derbyshire hills in the far distance.

Infinity indeed, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Looking in the opposite direction there are equally long views over Leicestershire.
Superbe paysage avec les différents tons de vert.
Brian Walbey: Difficult to believe this isn't far from three of our larger cities.
What a lovely view, Brian!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely view in all direction from up there, you will see those as this series goes on.
Things to see like this in your own backyard, Brian, tell you how "rich" you are!
Brian Walbey: We are very lucky to live close to such fine countryside.
A fine vista Brian. I have a feeling I went here with the stooges a few years back
Brian Walbey: This is where Richard took you, Chad and Chris, if you recall Chad was photographed sitting on the trig point!

A axing how far you can see into the distance Brian.
Brian Walbey: This is where you were photgraphed sitting on the trig point when Richard took you, Bill and Chris there on a flying visit quite a long time ago now.

Quite a landscape on a day meant for landscape photography. These nearby rocks shows lift in the earth crust, many ages ago.
Brian Walbey: The rocks at Beacon Hill were formed from volcanic activity around 700 million years ago and are some of the oldest found across the world. We feel lucky to live so near to some very attractive, and English style, countryside.

England's green and pleasant land. Ley's hope the developers don't have their eyes on any of this.
Brian Walbey: There is a lot of development going on round our way but hopefully it will be many years before any of the land in this picture is used. BTW when you've been to mine on the land to the left of the road between Hathern traffic lights and the moroway bridge at Shepshed they are about to start building 3,200 houses etc.!!
Your Cambrian shield is seen here. Beautiful. I watch a British real estate program and Leicestershire was the area the other day. It appealed to me very much.
Brian Walbey: I'm wondering if that was the programme that was on here last week called 'Location, Location, Location', that was in Leicestershire, not very far from us. Beverly has been watching 'Escape to the Country' a similar type of programme so it could hav been that.
This reminds me so much of the countryside they present to perspective buyers on "Escape to the Country" series, Brian. So lovely.
Brian Walbey: 'Escape to the Country' is one of two programmes of that type, Mary has watched one recently thatw as filmed in Leicestershire, not far from where we live. It is a shame we rarely ever get any programmes from Canada on our television, perhaps just a travelogue every now and then but that is about all.

This is just beautiful, Brian. What a view. I would not mind walking here.
Brian Walbey: There are miles of walking Astrid, on a nice day it is very pleasant, on a cold and wet day not quite so nice smile
some pleasing views of the countryside, Brian. and a beautiful day too.
Brian Walbey: We are pleased to have this lovely countryside just a short drive from our home.
i love the patchwork fields Brian... the near one and all the others on the horizon Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: You will see more in this series Peter as I point the camera in other directions. When we moved here in 1989 we had no idea this lovely countryside was on our doorstep, so to speak.
