Such a beautiful place to visit the video doesn’t do justice to the actual height of the climb. Driving through here this day after a very cold walk up Brown clee hill nearby which is actually the highest point in the county you can feel your own mortality when faced with another car or van coming towards you. Its not for the faint hearted but if you can bare to be a little scared is so worth the visit the views are superb.
