“Nice walk!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Not too difficult and still makes you feel you've done some exercise. The view from the top of the hill is quite pleasant.

“Lovely climb on an autumn morning.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

Conical Hill is at one end of the town, at the end of the main street. A path has been constructed around the hill, so that you can walk fairly easily (or with a bit of puffing if you are not too fit!). At the top there is a small pavilion where you can sit. It is worth it as the view over the surrounding countryside is stunning.

a good place to stretch the legs after a long flight

A 20 minute walk takes one to the top of the hill, giving superb views of the area. there is a lookout area there too, which provides some information.
