The small hillock, crowned by a copse of trees is a familiar sight to any regular user of Rookery Lane between Canwell and Hints. I've been fascinated by it ever since I first saw it 25 years ago.

I think you are going to get fed up of me following you!

If I am not mistaken we had just turned left on to Rookery Lane from near White Owl Farm, but we did not notice the interesting clump of trees. Looking on the OS Map it could be called Crow's Castle? As we had observed in all of our miles of walking, you can always see something new, or in a different context, each time you go out!

It reminded me of Crutch Hill near Elmbridge in Worcestershire where there is a Trig Point of only 77m but with marvellous views.

Yes, it's Crow's Castle... the clue is in the picture title :-p

Hints is a truly beautiful area. I trust you wandered down to the ford, the site of the old forge?

The Black Brook valley is a marvelous spot.
