    Welcome to the top of the world! Well, at least Somerset. We may not be blessed with mighty mountains in the South West, but it's still certainly and achievement to climb Dunkery Beacon at 1705 feet (520m), whether that's by foot, or by bike, on road or off. Be prepared for more fierce weather if you're planning a trip up here as it can be much more blustery and cold up here than in the Exmoor valleys. There's a great off road trail up from Exford - have you tried it?

    Highest point on Exmoor and in Somerset - well worth the effort to ride up!

    Amazing spot! Was the highlight of our Westcountry way ride. Don't miss it if you're around.
