Backley Holmes

After several days of rain the sky cleared towards evening time allowing clear skys with just enough cloud low on the horizon to make an interesting sunset.  Backley Holmes is an open area of neatly manicured grassland dotted with a few mature Oaks set in the high central plateau of the forest.  Once assessable via a passing forest road between Burley and the north forest, the site would have been an ideal site for summer picnics, now though, the road is decommissioned and decayed, truncated by the A31, and the Holmes only really accessible after a lengthy walk.
