Westbury walkers’ hike 7 and half miles to South Cadbury. Starting with rain and flooded roads, 10 members made their way, led by Jan McCann and Paddy Yerburgh. As they set off on October 13, the rain eased off and stopped for the entire walk.

The group climbed up Beacon Lane to Corton Hill near the Beacon which is 196 metres above sea level and passed Cadbury Castle, an ancient wooded fort believed to be the site of King Arthur’s Camelot.

Member, Paddy Yerburgh said: "The many days of heavy rain did make the walk rather more challenging than normal but a brief appearance by the sun towards the end enhanced the beauty of the surrounding countryside."
