We parked at the church car park then had a look round the cemetery before we headed up towards the ridge. Weather was clear when we set out but as we climbed the ridge the mist came in. We reached the summit in mist and decided to have a bite to eat in the hope it would clear. Luckily it did so took some photos before returning to the car.

Nice to see you got lucky with the clag clearing at the top :D Some good pictures too, the view back down makes it look a fairly steep hill!
