Logged as YSM348 Brean Down Walked up here many a time as my Mum had a static caravan down at Warren Farm for many years. Don't remember the trig point at all but must have passed it many times as we walked right to the end more than once! Steep climb up to this but Mr U2 had Pokemon to keep him occupied so I could take my time. Lovely views from the top and brought back many happy memories and good nights had in the local establishments.

Once again, as is often the case, on a hill commanding great views. From here can be seen Weston Super Mare, South East Wales, Somerset, The Mendip Hills, a few small islands in the severn. A good place for binoncolurs if you have them. At the end of the hill over looking the sea is a old WW2 fort. often overlooked due to its location, its free to look around and is worth a look.

This one takes a while but what you see is worth it. When you park the car at the bottom of the steps and climb the 5 million stairs to the top, please don't leave your camera in the car..... Just speaking from experience there. It's a loooong way down and if you suffer from vertigo don't look down as you climb.

Fantastic views, lovely spot. A local trig and a pleasure to visit. Lots of history on this place from Iron Age hill fort to Napoleonic fort and WW2 structures. Wild goats are amusing and birdlife is interesting.

This was a surprise trip for me. I didn't realise that I was going out today so this was a special treat. A lovely pillar with excellent sniffs around and as it was busy, lots of people folk had their dogs with them. I met an especially handsome fellow named Jake.

A beautiful warm sunny visit was had here. I prepared for the climb up the steps following a fine breakfast in The Artful Dodger Cafe in Burnham-on-Sea. There were 360 degree views although the Welsh coast was somewhat shrouded in mist. One of my ultimate goals is the pillar on Steep Holm. The Brean Down pillar is in good condition, a good clean plate and very easily accessible, as long as the steep flights of steps doesn't put you off.

Stopped with Dart More on way to Devon from Weston s Mare, but took longer to get there than expected. There is parking, but unless you are a National Trust member, it will cost £2 for the day. There were a few cars parked on the road, but there isn't a lot of room.

SoÖ Day three of my expedition started here... Brean Down... and I canít think of a better place to start. After climbing all the steps (no, I didnít count them but there were lots!) from the car park to the top, the landscape opened out onto a rolling, green vista. An easy stroll along to the trig pillar on the highest point, shared only with a small herd of goats. These were REAL goats... long hair, long horns, beards, the lot! They would probably have been more at home in the Alps or the Rockies. However, I digress... the pillar is in good condition apart from the missing centre plug that has been replaced with a bitumen/tarmac filler. The views are excellent, with Steep Holm and the Welsh coast 10 miles away to the north west and back towards Weston-Super-Mare in the north east. Having done the biz here, I carried on to the old fort on the end of the peninsular. Interesting point, here. During WW II , they installed two, 6 inch, naval guns from an old WW I battleship. Now these guns had a range of 20 miles, apparently. Had they ever fired in anger... which they didnít... and missed the enemy ship they were aiming at... the good folk in Caerphilly would have been really pissed off. I guess the warlords of the time figured a few irate Welsh peasants didnít actually count for very much in the great scheme of things.

Parked in the cafe car park about a mile away and did the circular walk around Brean Down. Sunny, hazy day with a cold wind. A nice afternoon walk with good views out to Steep Holm & Flat Holm, and up towards Weston-Super-Mare.

The pillar has an asphalt plug and FB BsM 3270. Brean Down is a limestone promontory south of Weston, it has a rich and interesting history; pre-roman to the Second World War. The site has been designated a SSSI for both its geology and its flora. Accompanied by my granddaughter; today was clear and sunny with a huge view: Weston, Mendips, Somerset Levels and Glastonbury Tor; the beach stretching down to Burnham; the West Somerset coast and across the Bristol Channel to Wales.

I'm estimating the time that I first went to this trig point, but it is on a very special promontory, which I have visited many a time... as someone else mentions, it is well worth visiting the ruined fort at the end, which had been partially rebuilt the last time I visited, in about 2003.
