Survey turns hill into a mountain

A news story from the BBC website that may be of interest - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/north_west/7623904.stm

Just so long as it wasn’t a P149 before the resurvey. I’ve had my fill of updating the Database recently hi!

Interesting story. It was on BBC Radio 5 Live as I drove into work this morning. They were also interviewing Joe Calzaghe, and so the soundbite was “Coming up, the progress of two Welsh mountains”.

In reply to G3VQO:

Splendid! I guess that makes me no longer a Welsh completer? Time to get the boots on.

Unfortunately, the BBC article neglected to mention the involvement of John and Anne Nuttall. They mention the surveying expeditions on their website here:

Although its not in their list of Welsh mountains here:

I’m confused.
