Been aware of this gig just off the east side of the M1 between jnc 28 n 29 for couple of years. Finally after dreadful delays on the road or of York to the birth had already made me an hour and a half later getting here than I'd normally expect, today it seemed appropriate just to add another 20/25 Minutes and get it done.

I took a walk up from Teversal Visitors Centre and took the circular route around Silverhill Wood Country Park. It was a beautiful clear morning with a good frost. The circuit takes you round to the Miner statue from where you get a great view out over the county. I dropped back onto the road and headed back to the visitors centre for a drink and a flapjack. All round a great little tump.simonshrewsbury19/11/2017

Great to find a summit without fences and reservoirs to contend with - even if man-made. Really quite a delightful place and view point. The summit statue is particularly fine. Lunch in warm sunshine. Cycle from Derby to Sheffield.RichardM07/02/2017
