273 Metres Ascent
Back into the Barton Hills for a muddy adventure! Bedfordshire generally has two types of mud, claggy boot clinging mud across some fields and slippy slidey gloop along tracks. This walk happily had both! The day was unseasonably warm above 10c, so I managed with just a shirt. Layering is proving complicated this season.
|From Deacon Hill|
Sat upon the trig point on Deacon Hill I started to get a little cold. The temperature had dropped markedly to around 6 then 4 degrees. The sun was still out so I was a bit surprised how quickly it dropped, with an hour before sunset.
December has been pretty good so far as far as the weather (despite the storms!) is concerned and I've avoided the bad bits, so far! Not sure that will last.
