A recent discovery for me near my new home town is The Cragg – a mini-peak nestled in the outskirts of the Forest of Bowland.

It’s a short (hilly!) bike ride from my home in Lancaster.

Right now, the journey there has a lot of lapwings in the fields, with their distinctive calls, and fields full of sheep, lambs, and cows.

From The Cragg you get a close up view over towards a small hilltop windfarm of seven turbines. I love to watch them.

And it has absolutely stunning vistas – you can see the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, and Morecambe Bay. You’re accompanied pretty much all of the way by Clougha Pike.

I feel very lucky to have it so close by, especially right now.
