Maybe someone has done a count. I see people up there more often than not, usually in twos or threes. If I had to guess I'd say dozens a day in the summer - it's probably part of the crop circle experience and a lot of those get built nearby no doubt because the Hill is the perfect viewpoint for them. I get the impression most are tourists. I wonder if that's psychology playing a part again, "I no able to read your damn notice signor..."

Some are home grown of course. I once went into an indignant old fart routine at 3 people scrambling straight down without even bothering to use the path and one of them shouted "Eff off it's our temple maan" so he must have been some sort of priest or a Mason or something. Later I realised I could have said yeah but it's our monument maan. Hope he's reading this!
