On 16th May 2016, three intrepid souls set out to conquer Sugarloaf, a 'mountain' of 1,955ft in Wales
A day trip to Sugarloaf on a pleasant May day (a miracle actually as the previous and following days were pretty grim). We were idling away a few moments at the summit after our sandwiches when a person from Porlock arrived. This was a Jewish chap (self-identified: kippah, black suit, white shirt, black shoes - just the gear for hill climbing) who was reliving a trip of his youth. He had had a day off work and had come from Barnet by train and taken a lift from the station. We gave him a lift back ... mazel tov.
