ABC Wednesday - K

Knoll - n - a small hill or mound.

Brent Knoll is a village about 4 miles away from where I live and it surrounds the hill you see in the pictures. The Knoll is a great landmark and it is always a pleasure to finally see it when we return from our travels as it means we are definitely on the home stretch.




This view is taken from our bedroom window.




At Easter the local clergy hold a special service at the top of the hill and three crosses are erected there. They are visible from the main roads and the motorway and will remain there until the weekend after Easter. This event has taken place for the past 15 years. You can read more about it here

Thanks to Mrs Denise Nesbitt and her team who host ABC Wednesday. For more looks at the letter K - please click here.

Lovely view from your bedroom. It must be very comforting to see that knoll and know you're nearly home again.

What a lovely knoll! I do miss the English countryside. And sheep believe it or not (we don't have them in Ohio)

Beautiful views.
I wonder will you be going up the knoll to the service? That would be very impressive to see the crosses from a distance.

Nuts in May

The scene with the sheep looks so tranquil. I'm sure the Easter service is a very moving experience in that setting.

Beautiful! It's nice to know there are hills somewhere in the world, it's so dratted FLAT around here!

I know exactly what you mean about seeing the hill and knowing you're nearly home, too.
