Thanks to Chris Gough` for adding this peak.

No great height, Hergest Ridge tops out at just under 1400', but in this wild border hill country it feels bigger and higher, with extensive views in all directions. To the west is Radnor Forest, which doesn't seem much higher despite being over 2100', and away to the south are the dark ridges of the Black Mountains.

Standing on the Whetstone at the top, looking East, you'll find no higher ground until the Urals of Eastern Europe.
