Cranborne Chase

We went out this afternoon on an impromptu drive up to Win Green Hill, on the South Wessex Downs, which look out over Cranborne Chase. We tried to get there earlier thsi year, but were stopped by the by way up to the hill being snowed in. None of that today, it was ideal weather - fresh and breezy with plenty of sunshine.
Very peaceful as we got there late afternoon, the other two cars leaving just after we got there. We took binoculars, and looking out over the Chase towards and over Shaftesbury, we could glimpse Galstonbury Tor in the far distance. Lots of wildflowers, wind blown trees and wide open farmland; cows and sheep in the fields; the song of a lone bird. Wonderful.
