Benwiskin seems to have serious access problems at the minute. I went down to climb it 3 weeks ago when I was confronted with a series of ‘Private Property’ and ‘Trespassers will be Prosecuted’ signs so I decided not to go up. It was only this week when I was reading Paul Clements’s ‘The Height of Nonsense’ that I found out about the ‘Bull’ and I tell ya, I was glad I didn’t go up.
