The Long Mynd

We returned to the Long Mynd today, for a stroll. Also, we were road testing the new rucksack we bought with some vouchers we received for the wedding. We had an excellent time and the backpack was just what we were after: i.e. it was big.


We walked along the hill to Lightspout Waterfall, which at only 4 metres high doesn’t quite seem to deserve the nickname “miniature Niagara” which Victorian visitors gave it. Still, it was a fairly gentle walk, with only a couple of drag-yourself-along-with-your-hands moments, which only add to the fun anyway. Once we reached the waterfall we stopped for refreshments, though some steps led to a further walk, which we might try sometime.


Good fun though, and as ever we left promising to come back sooner than this time was. That makes sense, right?
