The view from here can be outstanding. Many a time I have sat up here, scanning the view and getting ready for what you can see comming. A good place to be perhaps. The other side of the road you cannot see so well due to a few houses and a pub, I have been caught out from that side, behind things that appear so familiar, they hid the pending bad weather. I sorta think that being at the top requires allround vision, perhaps looking behind some stuff to find out more. From there you can help other folk see, who, for whatever reason are unable. An advantage should be shared a little, someone could have given you that helping hand to get you to the top.
