My mum just did the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge and so we decided that we should do the same! But smaller.
We did the three tallest ‘peaks’ of Cambridgeshire. If you know about Cambridgeshire then it will be obvious to you that it is flat.
That is why this was very easy.
Peak one: This one was the smallest ‘peak’. (It was more of a hill than a peak and more of a mound of earth). This ‘hill’ was near East Hatley and was called Croydon Hill. It was a not a difficult trek but at least our dog got a good run. 😉
At the top there was just a few fields and a small group of trees.
Peak two: We went straight to the highest peak next as it was the closest from where we just were. This one was near Heydon and was called Great Chishill. Once again it was not much of a climb but still quite nice. We ended up having our picnic lunch at the back of a pub then continued and found a play park at the top of the hill.
Peak Three: This one was more of a climb despite it being only the second tallest. It was near Haverhill and was called Castle camps. We grabbed a quick church micro (which is a geocache) then went off on our journey. First we set of on a track which was not the way to the ‘peak’ but still rather interesting. Also, it turns out our dog needed a pit stop…
As we reached the summit and our adventure came to a close we gave out shouts of rejoice and began our journey back home.
