Site of the 1643 Civil War Battle of Lansdown made for an interesting piece of history that we didn't expect, as well as walking through the middle of a race course (fortunately no meeting was taking place otherwise expect the public path would have been closed as it crossed the track). Hanging Hill is also the highest point in South Gloucester - some claim to fame that, but it need to be ticked off the list and the trig wa a bonus bag.

No brambles or nettles protecting it at this time of year. It even has a short path to it on the other side of the kissing gate off the Cotswold Way.

The pillar is amongst nettles in the corner of a field; it has a metal plug with shallow lettering and has FB S2572. The access along the Cotswold Way from the east and the site of the pillar are within the Civil War battlefield of Lansdown Hill. The trig point lies on what would have been the western flank of the original parliamentarian defences overlooking the royalists camped above the golf course on Freezing Hill. Although hazy today the view to the north continues along the Cotswold scarp and across the Vale of Berkeley. The Welsh Hills could just be seen past the suburbs of north Bristol and the Severn Bridge. A little further along the Cotswold Way the views to the west and south open up over Pipley Bottom, across Keynsham toward Dundry and the Mendips.

Joined the long list of those who have had to clear the nettles. Nice views from this historic location. An unusually flat approach via the Cotswold Way.

Found this as a bonus while looking for geocache GCH7VP - Bristol Panorama. Good views. There's also a historical walk around the site of the Battle of Lansdown, from 1643.

Followed the scarp line in from the main road to the east parking by the monument and using the Fire brigade road in part.

Interesting site ,Battle of Lansdown site with board and marker stone,vies as far as new Severn Bridge and May Hill! Strange path up from NW ,more like an old stream bed for first 150 m.

Trig is on site of Battle of Lansdown 1643. We nearly had Battle of Youngs 2005 due to leader setting off in wrong direction and aiming for wrong radio mast.Lovely views and route marked with axes. Alls well that ends well!

The pillar is situated beside a hedge and was surrounded by thick nettles when I visited. A few yards away there are great views from Lansdown Hill, where the Battle of Lansdown Hill occured during the Civil War.

In Bath for the weekend so decided to walk the last section of the Cotswold Way - despite pouring rain. Started at Greville Monument and came to this trig fairly quickly. Clear of vegetation at this time of year, in good condition, but completely cloudy so no views.
