Mount Crushmore

This mound on the outskirts of Radstock is a slag heap from the Somerset Coal Field, which was an unexpected industrial outpost set in the heart of the West's countryside, and which only ceased coal production in relatively recent years.

Indeed, much of the traffic on the Kennet and Avon Canal between Bristol and London originated from the Somerset Coal Canal.
This was the view from my bedroom window as a child! Climbed up it for the first time a couple of years ago. Interesting facts!
