Sunday 5th February 2006

This walk is somewhat out of my normal territory due to a trip to London to see the musical Billy Elliot on Saturday and John Otway and Wild Willy Barrett the following night. I therefore took the opportunity to climb to the highest point in the south east of England, Leith Hill. After the gloom of January it was a real treat to see the sun although it was very hazy so no good views from the top of the hill.
