Game Pie and The Golden Bowl

Tonight's walk took me to Houns Tout, one of my favourite places on The Purbeck. The views to the east and the west are as fine as you will get anywhere and standing on the rocks at the edge of the cliffs is truly incredible.
The walk starts in the woods and, at this time of year, the air is heady with the scent of wild garlic. We were joined by a positive game casserole with Roe Deer, Pheasant and Partridge all making their presence felt.
As the path leaves the woods, the ground to the right falls dramatically away to form The Golden Bowl of the Encombe Estate, to the left there are stone-walled fields that hold crops, lambs and tonight, a handful of Hares.
All in all, a perfect evening.
