No gig - day off!

Next it was a much shorter drive up to Craven Arms, and Callow Hill G/WB-015.  I took the longer but much more graded path up onto the ridge - not the stupidly steep direct PROW I used on my first visit back in 2003!  As I was walking the final section across to Flounders Folly at the summit, there was a very loud noise from the adjacent field which sounded like a helicopter, but I couldn’t see due to the trees and high bushes.

The weather had brightened right up and I was being treated to some rare warm sunshine.  Just four contacts made on 2m FM, including S2S with Andrew G4VFL/P on Bradnor Hill G/WB-011.  An even shorter drive next over to View Edge G/WB-018 on the other side of Craven Arms.
