Day 58 mile 58: Spooky Hill. For years the inconspicuous Menai Road has been known as Spooky Hill among students at Bangor University and, with the rise of the internet, lots of other people too. It has a real wild wood feel to it, suitable as a set for anything from Wind In The Willows through to much darker cinematic offerings. In truth, I have never quite got to the bottom of why it got its nickname. It may be as simple as its appearance and lack of much street-lighting. However sometimes it’s quite nice to let the imagination run away, and charge about the place trying to escape whatever weasels or zombies the brain can concoct!
I’m out in this direction due to having to visit a friend who is in the hospital at the top of the hill, which, it seems feeds into the zombie narrative quite nicely for motivation. On a serious note though, if you are reading this Tegwyn, get well soon 🙂
It was nice to rattle about between the pavements and the trees, clear the mind and see a large buzzard out presumably looking forward to his lunch too.
Thanks to all who continue to support in so many ways!
Good noise to charge about spooky places too 🙂
I’m running a mile each day everyday for 2017. If you feel you can sponsor me please do, as all the money raised will go to the Cleft Lip & Palate Association (CLAPA) who provide services all across the UK to support people affected by it.
