Landscape from Chosen Hill towards Gloucester

By GwailoAngMo
My aunt on my motherís side died earlier in the year and I paid a return visit to check the grave was in good condition. She is buried there, as are her two husbands, my grandparents, and the village headmaster and his wife (Mr and Mrs Shelley), a former teacher of mine, among others, on Chosen Hill, a bugger to climb and the last approach is very steep for vehicles as well. The descent via the footpath you can see is initially steeper, and the wooded approach was dotted with bluebells. The top of the hill and vistas, even the view over Cheltenham, a delight.

The area has changed much since my childhood. The metal monstrosities and business park between Chosen Hill and Gloucester are part of the expansions we see everywhere. Beyond that the tower of Gloucester Cathedral competes with the chimney and main building of the Gloucestershire Royal Hospital for our attention.

The new buildings are all a necessary part of life now so I've focused on that charming farm!

Hope you've caught your breath now Tim!

Chosen Hill is easy in parts, by foot or in a car, but there are some really steep inclines no matter how you approach the top. As an adult I find it exhausting, but my childhood memory of the hill is only of a sunny day, a house with lavender in the front garden, and how spooky it felt inside the church. I had never seen bell ropes before, but they were all tied up like nooses.

It is so strange what childhood eyes and brains absorb. The recall is often crystal clear but needs a lot of deciphering!

Have a lovely weekend.
