A selection of images said to have been taken on 1 January 2005. This was a a couple of months before Geograph was born.
I have weeded out a few images which were obviously not taken in January (scanning dates may have featured), and a few others which looked very unlikely to have been taken on New Year's Day, given the subject mater. Leaving me with 29 images, sorted from (map) north to south. I have added a brief description where there was none.

The churned up earth in the foreground is due to the fact that the landowner sometimes allows owners of 4x4 vehicles to charge around this part of the hill.
