This is one of the best known landmarks in the Bathscape area, and rises above the north eastern edge of the city.  Walking up the steep sides will reward you with panoramic views from the plateau.

It is the site of a former iron age hillfort and there is also evidence of it being used for agriculture from medieval times.

Today, thanks to the underlying oolitic limestone and careful management by the National Trust, the hill top is a fine example of calcareous grassland, and the associated wildflowers and invertebrates.
