DUNKERY BEACON.

Above. The view from the car park as you start the long (for me) climb.
To take most of these pictures, Sue stood actually perched precariously on the beacon itself.
Above. Looking slightly inland, it doesn't matter in which area you look the views are stunning.
Sorry about the picture above being slightly into the sun but it just would'nt move no matter what I said to it, it shows the beacon's distance away after you top the first hill,

This next photo shows the path dissapearing into the distance.






Recently Sue and I went on a drive to Dunster and Minehead in Somerset, on the way we took in a few sights as usual. One of these was Dunkery beacon ,this beacon is one of the highest if not the highest point in N Devon and Somerset, its 1705 feet above sea level and is reached by (no road) about half a mile of steep uphill climb.The following day we returned complete with stout walking shoes, a drink, a snack, the walking sticks and most importantly a new portable oxygen cylinder,thus armed we set out. At this stage I should say that the views (even from the road) are absolutely stunning with a full circle of uninterupted landscape including across to Wales. On the top next to the lge pile of stones that is "The Beacon"is a plaque and a sun dial type pedestal presented by the Automobile Association that shows positions and distances to all the large surrounding towns etc.The biggest problem that faces me now is "A"which few of the 57 pictures do I put in the blog? and "B" how many can I put in without being boring?. Oh hell lets do it.
