365/182: 20 August 2010: A bit of Somerset

Had to travel to Somerset today (and back in the evening), so grabbed this shot of a local landmark from the road between Midsomer Norton and Farrington Gurney As a small boy I fondly believed that this was a volcano (actually its mining slag from the days of coal mining around Paulton ) and could never understand why the local residents weren’t concerned that they’d end up like Pompeii.

it’s known locally as Paulton Batch, – batch being the local word for a slag-heap.
