Walbury Hill 2017

G/SE-001 – Not quite a mountain

It was a fine Saturday morning so decided it was time to bag my ‘local’.  We quickly gathered the essentials and jumped into the car for the short drive over to Walbury Hill.  Parking is easy in the large area to the west of the summit marked on the map as a viewpoint.  It’s just a quick walk up the track and over a field to the trig point.

I set up next to the trig point and quickly bagged the required contacts.  It was railways on the air weekend so three of my contacts were with special event stations located at railway sites.

With the point in the bag we packed up the kit and headed for home returning in time for lunch.
