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

My boots split whilst hiking around Cheddar Gorge, so I left them with a great view of the Mendips somewhere near the summit of this most holy of hills. I put flowers in them to make them less like litter...DanHolme24/02/2005
