Member's Comments on Shire Hill...

  • Chris Pearson says...
  • A wooded quarried hill driven past many times. Quarry track gated and forbidden. Easily missed to left are steps and overgrown path through wet bracken and woods which angled left to join main path coming up from west (used on descent). Access land goes to summit fence which edges the quarry top. Coils of severe razor wire(!) had been used to plug a gap in fence.(thoughts of the poor migrant souls in the news at Calais faced with such obstacles). Highpoint set back from any drop gained further away awkwardly over a mere 4 strands of "normal" barbed wire fence.
