Pleasant 12 mile walk on the Quantocks from Holford, walked up onto Dowsborough, along to Wills Neck (Bagborough) trig, along to Black Hill trig and onto Beacon Hill trig, back down to Holford. Dismal misty weather with rain, We should have been walking in the Scottish Highlands this week but the weather was so bad up there we ended up here instead.

Walked up from the west. Pillar has had a patchy coat of paint since last logger. There is some minor chipping to top edges; original cap missing, no plug; all sight holes open. Morning mist prevented what must be a fine panorama; some views glimpsed to N and W looked extensive.

The most Northerly of the 3 on the Quantock ridge; lovely place, nice weather too; hail, wind & rain, just as it should be ! Nice views (normally) across the Bristol Channel, including the local beauty spot of Hinkley Point nuclear power station. Short walk up from the car park just beyond West Quantoxhead.
