Relatively few visit the Lickle Valley, some perhaps have not heard of it but it is a lovely place – very quiet and removed from all manner of everyday life. It was a pity about the lack of views today as perhaps the photos do not show it at its best, so we will return when the skies are clearer. It almost felt as if we were pioneering on The Knott for this must surely be a different scene now the trees are removed.
