FromYarmouth via field paths and minor roads. Top is a near level circular mound which srrounds the red brick Golden Hill Palmerston Fort. We settle on the SE side of the mound as the high point. All seems very manmade. Fort is now appartments with some interesting holiday accommodation.RichardM31/10/2015
