Creech Hill from the east

From the southern flank of Creech Hill, the view extends from Alfred’s Tower in Wiltshire to the east and Cranborne Chase in Dorset to the south, to the Brendon Hills and Devon border 40 miles west. Much of Somerset is visible in between. This new walk takes full advantage of the view but avoids the steep climbs of most routes up the Hill. 6 miles, 9.5 km, two hours 20 minutes to three hours, moderate.
