Two down – 28 to go!


Continuing my 30th year challenge of climbing the nation’s County High tops, I recently visited the Isle of Wight to conquer its loftiest hill – St. Boniface Down. It may not be that big at 241m above sea level, but the views from the top are truly spectacular – expansive cobalt seas to the south and patchwork fields to the north. I hardly saw anyone else on route to the top – butterflies and bees were my main companions – and I didn’t mind for it simply meant I was all the more able to explore the derelict radio and radar station, which marks St. Boniface’s pinnacle – another memorable expedition indeed.
