This walk turned out to be a mistake and I really should have known better when I saw the smoke being pumped out from one of the nearby farms. However, when I got to the car park the way up looked clear so I set off for the top; only a short walk in any case.
Got to the top and starting getting an acrid smoke smell. Tried breathing through my nose but still felt a bit crap when I got back to the car and for a couple of days afterwards.

A good view of a snow-capped Knock Hill from the start of the walk.

Long Hill looks a great view point, I must investigate it the next time we're in the area (daughter lives not too far away :) ). Your video of walking through the woods is really Tolkien-llike, I felt as if I was walking with Ents - many thanks :clap: :clap: .

It can be turned into a loop walk by either descending to the west and looking for a gate and track down to the Deveron or by heading east from the carpark a short way and climbing a fence or gate to get onto the same Deveron track. One barbed wire crossing on the hill.
