Mendip Hills (again)

For Christmas I got a National Trust membership. It’s being a few years since I was last a member, but now looking forward to visiting new places and going back to places we have been to before.

Back in 2016 I did start to keep a note of how much we saved with the membership, but looking back over the blog, I never kept up to date with that, but with this membership I am intending to blog about the visits we do this year and the savings we made.

You don’t need a membership though to visit the Mendip Hills. We walked up Crook Peak, before walking back to where we had parked the car.

Only clocked on the trip that it is Crook Peak and not as I have been calling it for years Crooks Peak.

Crook Peak has been important as a landmark and boundary from very early times, and the origins of the name are unclear. The local parish council state that ‘Crook’ comes from the Old English ‘Cruc’ meaning ‘peak’ or ‘pointed hill’.
