3 mile round bagging Wavering Down trig and Crook Peak, we walked Beacon Batch (Blagdon) trig and Cheddar Gorge earlier that day, very dull and cloudy, it started raining when we were very exposed between Wavering and Crook but stopped quickly thankfully, onto Brean Down next where the weather changed to hot and sunny.

I note previous baggers had lovely weather but for me however, it was cold and very misty at the top. I know the views are magnificent. I have climbed this peak before I became learned in the ways of trigpointing. My sorry children had been dragged up here and the plan was to wander on to Crook Peak as the sun burnt away the mist. Alas the weather gods were against us and the weather got worse so we headed back down. The pillar though is in good condition and made for an eerie sight as it appeared through the mist.

The trig was revisited during a pleasant walk from Crook Peak. I was accompanied by my daughter. The pillar is still in good condition although the paint appears more weathered than 2007. The remains of an asphalt plug line the rim of the spider hole. There are fantastic views all around from this corner of the Mendip Hills although the visibility was not as clear as it was 2 years ago.

Nice pillar,painted white & standing proud. Bit hazey but still fantastic views. Brilliant walk up in The Mendips.

This trig and the walk around it deserve an 8. The views are magnificent; from the Quantocks round through the Bristol channel and over to Glastonbury Tor. A great walk, we started from the car park on the SE side of Crook Peak and followed the path along the ridge to the trig, then back down to the village of Cross - a good pub there too for a reward. Nice walk back along the river Cheddar/Yeo/Axe (depends where you look !!) to the car park.

The pillar is painted white and is situated on a grassy summit of a gorse clad ridge. The site is within the Crook Peak to Shute Shelve Hill SSSI for its flora, fauna and geology. The plug is missing and has FB BsM 3247. The area is grazed by cattle sheep and ponies. Widespread views extending to Sandford Quarry, Weston, Bristol Channel, Wales, Forest of Dean, the south facing scarp of the Mendips, Cheddar Village and Reservoir, Somerset Levels, Blackdown Hills, Crook Peak, Brent Knoll, Bridgwater Bay, the Quantock and Exmoor Hills.
