Brinklow (Artificial Mound) — Fieldnotes

The mound looks impressive from the Rugby Rd approach and can be easily seen upon a short walk up by the connecting Brinklow Rd.
The best way to get onto the mound by foot i later discovered was to use the Ell Lane path just off Broad Street.I should have read fwump bungles advice below,Doh!
Still the mound was great in Warwickshires bare flat lands and a lot higher and steeper than i thought originally and provided possibly the best view over the county in all the area.
There seemed to have been some Easter Egg rolling going on down the face also which was an encouraging Pagan throwback.
Much recommended...feel the force!

Knightlow Hill - The Wroth Stone — Fieldnotes

The A45 is truly too noisy to comfortably stay for very long and the path leading up to the monument really only accomodates single file walking and I found that the A45 drivers travel way to fast past the 40mph limit here so beware,lest you be sucked into the road!
It is a nice little monument though and stirs that sense of awe when first spotted from afar.
It is on private sheeping land but only a little way of the track and the sheep were friendly!
Recommended as a good stop before heading over to the likes of Brinklow Hill.
