Great blog Phil. I am very envious of all the places you have travelled to in the name of SOTA.

I was interested to note the following with regard to GW/SW-018:

“There were no warning signs on the tarmac road to the observation post so we walked up to it… We are both still alive to tell the tale…”

Should have gone to Specsavers?

Nice one Tom! I was in the Scarborough Branch of Specsavers on Friday to pick up a new pair of varifocals on Friday actually, sadly they weren’t ready…

To be honest we walked over the rough ground to the rear of the layby and cut out where the barrier was and the signage, hence we didn’t see it. WE are both alive and well thankfully!

I also appreciate your blog and have used the tips and parking place info many times, thank you very much for providing this.
