Sponds Hill

A local walk enforced by time constraints, but beautiful sunny morning, after hard frost overnight, mostly dry or frozen everywhere so little mud. Windy and bitter on the top, but warm enough when sheltered. Nice to revisit some of the paths and lanes I've not walked for several years.
