SO2535 : The roof of the South

3 km from Craswall, Herefordshire, Great Britain

The roof of the South.
The roof of the South.
Summit of Black Mountain, the high point of the Eastern Black Mountains. Also the Offa's Dyke path - the dyke itself runs past Hereford to the east. The peaty track also marks the England/Wales border, England to the right.
This at 703m is the highest land in the southern half of England, and there is no higher ground to the north until Fountains Fell in Yorkshire. It used to be a lot harder going up here due to peat erosion, but there are slabs down now,and fewer visitors on horseback.

As to which tussock is the top???
