Spotted and submitted by Tony Greenaway, I hope you can access and enjoy this drone footage of our own Burton Pynsent Monument. Click here to view it.
Filmed by Droning on Somerset, this certified drone pilot aims to produce educational videos of Somerset along with a snippet of history alongside each. You can support this work by becoming a patron – follow this LINK.
The monument is opened periodically to allow visitors to climb to the top for a small charitable donation. Here's a bit about last year's open day (2022).
Hopefully Curry Rivel Online will be able to let you know as soon as there is another event planned.
Meanwhile, you could just enjoy the walk, the view and the years of carved messages.
p.s. Long-suffering husband now has a new knee – he'll be sprinting up and down next time!
