3rd January 2020
Having a couple of hours free, I headed up to Mousehold Heath and then walked across to St James' Hill, where you can get a fine view out across the city. I then carried on to visit a new site for me, Ketts Heights. This place, so-called because it was the meeting place for Robert Kett and his men in the 1749 attempt to take the city, is something of a hidden gem, with access through some unassuming gates off a busy road. I took some lunch up and had a very peaceful time, looking out over the cathedral. The view is arguably as good as that from St James' Hill, but it is more restricted by trees either side.
