What a wonderful bit of roadway! The hill road is rather steep and with the light in the right angle, the hills are so beautiful. When you go there, drive up and down as the scenery is so different.

If you want stunning scenery and a great walk look no further! This is truly beautiful landscape to roam in. Full of fascinating geology and in one of the post picturesque towns in England. Heaven!
