The town church clock struck 8am as I set off upwards at high speed as I had to be at Ashburton Primary School at 0830 for a day of supply teaching. Fast walk up, faster down at a run. 3rd tump of the morning. Easy 5 bar gate onto reservoir negates high mesh fence all around. Changed in car into work clothes and made it to school on time -just. 3 tumps before school, then 3 after, with an hour of dodge ball, and maths, reading and science with 29 manic kids in-between.Chris Pearson08/03/2024

Track up NW side of hill from bridleway reaches reservoir enclosure with path along its NE edge. Standard 5bar gate enters enclosure with covered reservoir. Dark, but path feels as good as any natural high point.RichardM08/11/2017
