Demonstrating that it's all a matter of perspective and personal preference. I'm not keen on the idea of sticking a path up Silbury and a viewing platform at the top, but I imagine the next generation of anoraks would be largely untroubled by it because it would be what they were used to.


Well I think that's spot on Mustard. From my teens onwards I grew up with the path which was always there. It was 'part' of the hill as far as I was concerned and whenever kids were asked to draw the hill, there was the path!
