An exploration of the Blackdown Hills AONB, which will see us weaving between Somerset and Devon. Starting in Hemyock we will make our way to the Wellington Monument, an impressive 175ft structure which is the tallest three-sided obelisk in the world.
From here we will cross Black Down Common to Culmstock Beacon where one of a few surviving stone beacon houses can be found as well as a trig point. Weather permitting there will be views across the Blackdown Hills from this vantage point and views back over to the Wellington Monument as we circle back round to Hemyock.
Bring a packed lunch. Pub to finish.
