Okay, so quite, quite literally going for a walk

00:00:05--> 00:00:06

to have a cup of tea.

00:00:09--> 00:00:10

That's what I'm up to.

00:00:11--> 00:00:16

That's hopefully going to be quite a nice little hike. I've got my

00:00:17--> 00:00:18

hiking sticks.

00:00:19--> 00:00:50

I'm going up through part Priory Woods, which is just on the edge of the town. We're live church Stretton, and then uptown Brook Valley. It's a beautiful view over here. Such a lovely walk. And now I'm going to make my way up to the very top of the long mynd. So I'm on top of the long men now and looking over to corned and hill which borders whales very prominent feature there. And right next to it is Mitchell's fold and mysterious stone circle.

my tea has over boiled as you can see, I didn't bring anything with me to clean it up

00:01:38--> 00:01:42

under law, innovate or die, as they say. And yeah, as

00:01:43--> 00:02:14

And how many people have come and gone before us and all the difficulties and the trials and the tribulations and the hardships they went through. And sometimes perhaps we think our life is so different and of course in many ways it is but in many ways is not on my way descent down from the long mynd. I look across to care caridade the Iron Age Hill forth and there

00:02:15--> 00:02:30

I see on the Hill, a face of a bearded man. Can you see that too? I'm thinking is that the face of Caractacus famous king who held out against the Romans for his finally defeated

00:02:33--> 00:02:38

was it just an optical illusion? Because our brains are wired to see faces

00:02:42--> 00:02:43
