Incidentally the locals pronounce the name with a hard g, “her-gest” and correct people like me who get it wrong and pronounce it “her-jest” (M5RJC)
The locals we know, who live in Kington, call it Har-gest - but perhaps they have been gender sensitive for longer…! However the most striking attribute of the hill is that splendid grove of monkey puzzle trees - and the disused race track!!
Parking in Kington and walking up to Bradnor and then Hergest makes quite a good day for us but some of these speed merchants would add about 4 more hills as well and still get home for lunch!
Congrats Gerald on your 600th Marilyn which is very impressive and sorry we couldn’t try for a s2s but we had to cancel our activation as my February sprained ankle that won’t settle has gone bad and I’m confined to house and garden again. Grrrh.
