Went on my first 20 mile plus hike for over two years yesterday and am feeling it now!  

The photo was taken from the pre-Roman hill fort on Burrough Hill in Leicestershire.

One of the top five breakfasts of my life. Ham, eggs, fried spuds, toast and tea for under £6. Great service, very friendly, a gem indeed.
