This was my first visit back to my favorite trig since I discovered the Trigpointing website.I originally found Nickey Nook on my first planned walk aged 13 Looking down on the world (or at least the M6) with the sun shining and the skylarks singing. What I fell in love with that day set me on a course of a lifetime of hill walking and.poring over maps to explore hidden corners and remote peaks all over the globe.So thanks Nickey Nook for being my 'Orrest Head' (acknowledgements to Wainwriight) . I've been back here lots and lots of times and never tire of its magic- it has to be a 10.
