The Mount of Frogs

Walked up Brent Knoll today with the Weston Walkers. According to Wikipedia, before the Somerset Levels were drained, Brent Knoll was an island, known as the Isle (or Mount) of Frogs, that provided a safe haven from the water and marshes.

According to legend, Ider son of Nuth, who was one of King Arthur's knights, came to the Mount of Frogs on a quest to slay three giants who lived there.

The walker on the hill is looking across the Vale of Avalon towards Glastonbury.
