Burton Pynsent Monument Charity Open Day
Sunday 19th August 2018
11am-4pm

On Sunday 19th August, members of the public will have the rare opportunity to climb Burton Pynsent Monument whilst raising funds for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

The Burton Pynsent Monument in Curry Rivel, Somerset, stands on Troy Hill overlooking the levels of West Sedgemoor. The monument is 42 metres high and was designed by Capability Brown for William Pitt the Elder, and built by local builder Philip Pear in 1767.

The landmark's 164 steps lead you up a spiral staircase to its lantern, where uninterrupted views of the Somerset countryside will greet you. For those who wish to climb the monument, donations are being accepted in aid of the Charity.

The Open Day will run from 11.00am until 4.00pm, with parking available approximately 200 metres from the monument.

Please note that the venue is not suitable for wheelchair access.

Address: Burton Pynsent Monument, Curry Rival, TA10 0PE
(off A378, turning north onto single track road about 1/4 mile west of Curry Rivel)
