#32 'trig' of the trip. #21 Pillar. Popular spot today. Parked on the roadside and then took the Cotswold way all the way to the pillar which is just on the other side of the gate. Site of the Battle of Lansdown. The First English Civil War battle of Lansdowne (or Lansdown) was fought on 5 July 1643, near Bath, Somerset, southwest England. Although the Royalists under Lord Hopton forced the Parliamentarians under Sir William Waller to retreat from their hilltop position, they suffered so many casualties themselves and were left so disordered and short of ammunition that an injured Hopton was forced to retire.

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 needed to be ticked off the list and the trig was a bonus bag.

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.
