Lockdown eased so full day out with Lindsey. We did the Stiperstones in the morning, toured round Corndon Hill then drove across the Mynd and parked near the A49 in Church Stretton. Followed the usual route up onto Caer Caradoc summit on a bright warm evening (my sixth logged visit). Came off the hill at 8pm and was home by 10. A very good day.Skip19/05/2020

Lovely sunny day though a little hazy. Climbed from Hope Bowdler village. North via Hope Bowdler Hill (didn't climb main summit). Past Cwms Cottage (which has vanished!) to reach north ridge of Caradoc. Over summit and down over Three Fingers Rock. Skirted past Helmeth Hill (nice woods) to Gaerstones farm and returned to Hope Bowdler. 4.5 hours. With a DofE Bronze group practicising their navigation. Caer Caradoc is a stunning little hill.
