    A new mountain

    https://www.grough.co.uk/magazine/20...now-go-find-it

    There are now 446 summits in England and wales, assuming we can trust the use of satellite's and GPs in measuring the height

    I'm more than happy to stick with the original George Bridge's Tables which he published in 1973. He listed 408 tops over 2,000 feet of which 248 were separate mountains.Had great some great days ticking them all off between Jan 82 and Sept 85. The most awkward ones were Yes Tor and High Whillays on Dartmoor.I think it was the furthest I've ever traveled for less than an hours run! I remember staying B&B at The Plume of Feathers in Oakhampton but that's another story!

    I will stick with the Nuttalls 1989/90 list of individual 2,000 foot mountain summits + the Updates, not much can do about deleted ones other than treat them as a bonus outing

    I have stayed at the Plume of Feathers but in Princetown when I ran the Dartmoor Discovery Race several years ago cracking race, as to Plume of feathers as said that is another story,

    Nuttalls summits for me though
