Saturday 3rd October 2020 - Walton Hill G/CE-002, High Vinnalls G/WB-012, Burrow G/WB-014, Callow Hill G/WB-015 & Caer Caradoc Hill G/WB-006
After High Vinnalls G/WB-012, I drove north up to the small village of Hopesay, where I parked, as usual, in the cul-de-sac beside the church. I followed the public footpath out of the end of the cul-de-sac. This initially was a fairly level and narrow path between tall hedges, but then bore left to climb uphill between Bank Wood and Bird's Wood. After passing through the next gate, I headed south, aiming for the gate into the track around the eastern edge of Burrow hillfort.
Soon I was turning right through the gate into the Iron Age hillfort. It was then a case of picking out a line to work a way up to the highest point, situated up a steep bank. The activation started with three analogue FM contacts on 2m, but then Stewart G0LGS and his son Matt 2E0MDJ both appeared for 2m C4FM contacts. This gave me both the Challenge DV multiplier, and the qualification for the activation point, so I could descend and start to make my way across Craven Arms to Callow Hill G/WB-015.
