    You are rewarded with superb views along the coast from the cairn; Lundy Island to the west, Exmoor to the east and the shores of Wales to the north.You might just get more than lovely views, though. According to the religious beliefs of the Aertherius Society, Holdstone Down is a very special place. Aertherians believe that Jesus appeared to their founder Dr George King—in a spaceship—on Holdstone Down on July 23,1958. His followers hold a service to connect with space people on Holdstone Down as it is believed by them to be the site of contacts with extraterrestrial beings or alien peoples.
