Cley Hill is about 2 miles out of town on the Frome Road
There is a small car park just off the road with a signpost to show the way.
Follow the farm track and you are soon climbing, only gradually at first.
At the bottom of the hill proper you pass through a cattle-gate where there is information about the history of the hill
Near the top, its actually a lot steeper than it looks
The views from the top are amazing, and well worth the 20 minute climb - south east over Warminster . . .
. . .westwards over Frome
. . . northeastwards over Little Cley Hill and on towards Westbury.
On the way back down now with Longleat Forest in front of us.
There are supposed to be several species of orchid growing here, I didn't spot any, so here is a wild rose instead.
We chose the driest day of the week for our walk, and we were extremely lucky that it was also not windy, so a very pleasant outing.
