Lovely views. Permissive paths from the Cotswold way and the trig is just outside the fence protecting the Kelston Clump woodland. I've stared at this hill from the work tea room for years and it was lovely to finally get here. The only hill I've been to with an advertised hash tag too!

Visited along with Weston trig on a short circular walk from Bath. A permissive path allows access to the hill top, a small deviation off Cotswold Way. Location gives extensive views S, E & N, particularly over Bath; N obscured by hill-top copse. Pillar classifed as 'slightly damaged' due to horizontal crack at rear with small chunk on concrete missing from one verical edge, and section of cement finish missing from top surface (both can be seen in accompanying photos). Original cap in place - lightly indented lettering; 2 sight holes open.
