Ascent Trip Report

The highest point in the Forest of Dean but a virtual drive up. Parked on Highview Road by the Sports and Social Club and wandered the few tens of metres to the summit area where either the base of the current flagpole or that of the previous one is the highest natural point (the former is more man-made than the other). Also squeezed into the neighbouring covered reservoir compound to visit the trig point and ascend higher than both. The best location to visit, however, is 100 metres or so down the road to the Pan Tod Beacon with fine views to the north and east and an interesting toposcope mounted on the back of a sculptured miner.
