It was very slippery and steep, so I recommend good walking shoes to anyone who wants to try this in wet weather.
Well, that was fun, but rather samey. But I was very happy to find some Winter Aconite flowering in the churchyard, next to the car park on the way to the hill.

Like all churchyard plants, you have to assume that it was planted here at some time, but this seems now to be spreading and thriving. This plant is supposed to flower in winter. There were other plants there which were flowering out of their usual season - Primrose, Oregon Grape, Mexican Orange - but those were all clearly cultivated plants.
