Remains of 'Glastonbury' still here after a week. Pontificators on the meaning of chants such as 'Amen, Salaam ...' on the ascent, females in white shawls spreadeagled around the summit, spaced-out, folk camped out under bike-trailer shawls - get the idea. Kinda weird - even for me.Eddie07/07/2019

with Ann-Cha, Tom and Peter. I had to move out of the leeward shelter of the tower and do the HEMA radio activation in the wind because of two men meditating. One had a huge crystal egg in a box before him!M0YDH12/08/2013
I'm sure this is a lovely hill but when i visited here in fine weather i have not seen so many people on a hill top before.I should have been warned when i saw coach parties ascend the hill. Had to wait a hour or so at the top to get space to fully record the summit and walk around the flat top summit.I don't think i saw this hill at its best although the weather was wonderful, best to chose the right time to ascend.hodder07/07/2013
