35th County Top - Milk Hill
After a number of wet walks the evening sun broke through giving a very pleasant walk up onto the highest point in Wiltshire. Unmarked and in the middle of a ploughed field, the farmer has helpfully left an uncultivated approach to this top with its commanding views over the vale of Pewsey
