Bagged while on circular walk from South Cadbury. Great views over Somerset countryside.

Parked opposite Cadbury Castle for this one. Walked south on footpaths and then up onto The Beacon where this trig is located. No public access to the top of the hill, but easy enough to just walk up to the summit, which is also a HuMP. Pillar is accompanied by a red beacon and a direction finder. Our walk continued south to Seven Wells Down to visit the source of the River Yeo (a big anti-climax!) before heading back north for a tour round Cadbury Castle to finish off our 9 mile walk. Pillar has some cracks otherwise appears in good shape.

energy saving bulbs in the red beacon. Does it light up at night?

Took this one in as part of circular walk taking in nearby Cadbury Castle (Iron Age hill fort), purported to be the seat of Camelot. Haven't a clue I'm afraid I'll leave that to Indiana Jones. Anyway, a sunny day, lovely views at both locations. Cadbury has a topograph, worth a visit.

150m drive via Weston Down (housing estate), Failand Hill (private house with WWII security) and Worlebury Hill (W S Mare dog walk with trees) to a real hill! Path up to top with only a 50' ascent, circular stone seat and red electric beacon! Probably good views also, but it was raining.

Nice hill, good views. Noted 4 x drain holes in the trig - they don't all have that many do they ??

Included in a 6 mile walk starting at nearby Cadbury. Pillar has some cracking in the concrete although still appears sound. Has an aviation beacon next to it to warn aircraft presumably using nearby Yeovilton of the hilltop. Plug missing.

Lovely walk with family, dog & friends. Parked in Corton, then meandered up ridge and along for great wide all round views over Somerset Plain. Brilliant pub lunch followed at Rose & Crown in Trent. With reference to Martin's entry on 31 May 04 - did your wife ever find her top?
