done with Cheese Gate Nabl & Upper Whiteley Edgejoseph mitchell04/03/2014
An unpleasant encounter with the farmer who despite the now heavy rain came marching along the lane to intercept me on my descent, loudly angry that I might have left litter, or that his cows might have attacked me and hurt themselves (? ) Neither applied. Some people had apparently left litter picnicking on his hill & damaged walls - he subdued a bit when I told him I was trying to visit all hills in England with a 100 foot drop, and had just used gates and did not know who / where to ask permission from and apologised, but still told me not to come back. Permission should be requested from farm to SW corner of hill.Chris Pearson05/06/2011
