Cat’s Back

Possibly my favourite hill in the country, Black Hill in Herefordshire, aka “The Cat’s Back,” is the perfect first wild hill to introduce to the new walker. Not quite the Herefordshire county top (which lies to the west, astride Offa’s Dyke), Black Hill rises 604m above the English/Welsh border. Drive up the valley from Longtown in Herefordshire and park at the designated car park (288 328). Five miles, 2550 ft ascent.
