  • My favourites are 'Spencer's mound' near Horsey-from the top you can see the Winterton bangles in all their glory. Second would have to be Crow passage, a delightful avenue of Sycamores and Ash trees near Witton. On a quiet day you can hear the rustling of nightjars in the woods across East field.
