THE WALK TO MARTINSELL

 

 

Martinsell Hill, located near Oare north of Pewsey, is the third highest point in the county of Wiltshire, southwest England, at some 289 m / 948 ft above sea level. It is the location of an Iron Age hillfort

 

Martinsell Hill rises about 2km east-northeast of the village of Oare, 2km northwest of the village of Wootton Rivers, and about 4km north-northeast of the town of Pewsey. The hill is part of an east-west ridge on the northern flanks of the Vale of Pewsey and overlooks the Salisbury Avon and the Kennet & Avon Canal. The Mid Wilts Way runs along the back of the ridge. There is a trig point at the top. To the west are Oare Hill and the grounds of Rainscombe House.

A couple of gorgeous twig collections in the two lower images, Chris...
Chris: Thank you Ray. These pictures were taken a couple of days ago when the weather was a little chillier than it is today
i like the massive lone trees in the bottom images, Chris. they must look much different and pleasing fully laden with leaves
Chris: Thank you Ayush, the snow on the ground certainly makes them stand out
Magnifiques paysages et jolie présentation. Bonne année et bonne santé !
Chris: Thank you Martine. May you have a happy and prosperous 2018

This does look good in the snow - I have only ever seen it green, Chris
Chris: Katy & I did this walk a couple of days ago precisely because of these sparkling conditions Lisl

Oh, what a lovely path to walk into the new year -and what a wide view! I wished we had some snow again to go out and about. May you have a happy and prosperous 2018!
Chris: Thank you kindly Philine, I wish you a happy and prosperous new year
What a great way to bring in the new year, Chris, taking the high ground!
Chris: Yes indeed Ginnie, that walk and those views made for a wonderful day
Not an area I know but it looks very fine with a light dusting of snow
Chris: A favourite part of my world

What were you told about undertaking "essential journeys only"? Such appalling conditions, far worse than Scott's journey to the South Pole. Lucky you, though. I'm relieved that you have survived such an heroic feat and live to tell the tale. I have all you limbs remain unaffected by frostbite.
Chris: The result of my (our) heroic feats have left me able to turn down the knighthood I was offered and wait patiently for the OM I will surely receive, all in the fullness of time..

I drove back from Salisbury and through Pewsey on Saturday Tiff. Interesting to note the height of this hill, higher than my house at 200 meters.
Chris: I am astounded Chad

Those trees are amazing and what a place to walk. Happy New Year to you dear Bro. I hope you will have many many of these walks in this year and share the wonderful pictures.
Chris: Oh thank you kindly dear Little Sis. May 2018 be a great delight for you

2-300 metres hill walking is a bit of tough walking for you, Chris. But worthy for the views and all that sort of stuff. I have climbed all the 1000 metre plus Snowdonia peaks in one challenging day ..I was knackered
Chris: Whilst I, on the other hand, was fit as a violin after climbing this one
The top left shot really tells the tale. Wonderful looking area for walking.
Chris: It's glorious Mary
What beautiful countryside, no doubt just as attractive in summer with all the lovely greens of the trees etc.
Chris: Beautiful all year round Brian
Auguri - Buon Anno smile
Chris: Thank you kindly Claudio.

Happy new year!
Looks like a nice walk.
Chris: Nice walk in a very nice location Tom
On a beautiful day...
