Highest Point In Somerset. A sharp descent from Periton was made to Wootton Courtenay then along to Brockwell. Thence 2½ miles to cairn at summit. Weather was very sunny and ran out of water well before top. Summit crowded so Wallace was hand held. Descent to Allerford was down over Cloutsham Ball through Horner valley via Tea Rooms.
