Round Loaf

Artificial Mound


Visited Round Loaf for the first time since childhood last Saturday. It's very familiar shape seen from the top of Lever's gardens doesn't prepare you for it's size, it's got quite a footprint.

Starting in the morning on a good cold December day was perfect timing - easy walking on the ice and peat, entertaining too as it cracks beneath your feet.

Leaving just as the sun was high enough to begin thawing the ground, we avoided anything too boggy. This is the best time of year to visit - for ease of access, solitude, and clear skies.
