the lookout

we went to the lookout in bracknell today with our friends Ian and Carolyn. it’s a forest and used to be a major Roman settlement and is very nice (if you like trees, which we do).

and here’s a view from the top of the viewing tower:

The viewing tower told us that Paris was 200 miles away, which is nearer than Lands End. It also told us that Australia was 8,800 miles away and the Great Wall of China was 6,400 miles away.
Ultimately it made no difference as the trees had got too high so you couldn’t see Paris, let alone China.
