Wether Hill

Overview
Height: 2,198 Feet - 670 Metres
Grid Ref: NY 456 167
Area: Far Eastern
Ordnance Survey: OL5
Wainwright Guidebook: Two

The High Street range has largely lost its appeal to the walkers by the time he reaches the twin grassy mounds of Wether Hill on the long tramp along its spine northwards, and there is nothing here to call for a halt. The top, scarcely higher than the general level of the ridge, is quite without interest, while the eastern slopes are little better although traversed by two good routes from Bampton, but the western flank, characteristically steeper, has the peculiarity of Gowk Hill, a subsidiary height which itself develops into a parallel ridge running north.
