Short walk to this one. There was some heather burning near the top but fortunately the wind was blowing the smoke away from us, but didn't help the views.

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.

Pleasant walk across from Dead Woman's Ditch car park, then onto Dowsborough. Pillar has damage to all top edges and is buried to part way up sight holes, all of which are open. The top cap is missing and there is no plug. There is an attractive reddish tinge to the top screed. An extensive 360deg panorama.

The pillar is sited in an area of upland heath on a summit of the Quantock Hills to the northeast of the village of Crowcombe. The trig was visited on a circular walk from Rams Combe taking in Dead Womanís Ditch on the return. Some of the tracks were a tad muddy but the route was through some pleasant woodland and across upland open heath with good views. The pillar has the remains of some red paint, especially on top. The ground level has risen to the sighting holes. It lacks a cap or plug and the central tube has been filled with stones. Although not the clearest of days the trig still has impressive views. The wooded combes on the leeward slopes of the hill are to the east. The Quantocks continue northward to the Bristol Channel. Flat Holm, Steep Holm, Brean Down and the feint outline of the Welsh Coast could be seen. To the east Bridgwater and Brent Knoll were on view. The line of the Quantocks continues to the south and to the west the Brendon Hills rise up the other side of the valley and continue towards Exmoor. The area is within The Quantocks SSSI.

Great views but rather exposed, so the chilly wind today meant we couldn't stay to long to admire them. Missing plug.
