I climbed once again up to the top of the hill outside Portwrinkle to continue alongside the golf course that must be quite testing when the wind blows! Here I had a disaster with the camera as my battery ran out. I then discovered that I had brought the ‘wrong’ spare, finding the one in my camera bag also out of juice! I therefore had to walk the last couple of miles without any pictures to show for my efforts.
It was especially disappointing as further on I was able to use an opportunity denied me last time I came this way. A new path continues to the coastward side of Tregantle Fort, still very much a Ministry of Defence establishment. Last time I came this way the fort seemed to be almost permanently flying the red flags denoting that firing was taking place in the rifle ranges. Now the situation seems to be different – access seems more often than not. This must be a relief to walkers as the previous route along the road was pretty unpleasant.
The views of the fort are quite different from the coast side than from the road. I was most disappointed that I couldn’t have taken any and despite my best intentions of coming back to take a few later on I never managed it and will have to do this another time I guess.
