Southern tops being ticked off as bid continues
Bookmark and Share
The bid by Alan Hinkes to climb all 39 English county tops in a record quick time of eight days is continuing as the mountaineer sweeps across the south of England.

In his latest Twitter posts, the first Briton to climb the 14 peaks over 8,000 metres in the world revealed he has reached the highest points in Kent, Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, Wiltshire and Oxfordshire, with Sussex next on the list.

Those looking to find good places to climb who live away from truly mountainous parts of Britain may still feel inspired to out in their walking boots and check out the highest points in their own areas.

Some may have already had this idea, as Hinkes noted there were "a lot of people" at Oxfordshire's highest point, Whitehorse Hill.

The South of England may offer walkers more after last year saw the creation of a new national park there, the South Downs.
