Aggs Hill

Aggs Hull - A.R. Teague.jpg

Aggs Hill is a road in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. I learn from a website called streetlist.co.uk that the road is about 1,076 metres long and it’s the only Aggs Hill in the UK. Its highest point is 165.72 metres above sea level and its lowest point is 125.60 metres. And it’s a rather beautiful stretch, with trees either side in some places.

 

The trees in the photo are beeches. I like their smooth trunks and the wavy shapes of their upper limbs; these contrast well with the straight road. For a while they form a tunnel, which ends with the patch of light that looks like a big white egg on the tarmac.
