Panborough Hill, site of King Alfred's fort and medieval vineyard, Near Wedmore, and Glastonbury Tor picture early this morning from Cheddar Reservoir. Formerly Padenaberga and sometimes known as Barrows Hill, Panborough Hill lies on a ridge currently carrying the road from Wells to Wedmore. It has a singular profile, especially when seen from the Levels southward, toward Godney.
A chapel, thought to be dedicated to St Padan, a local saint, was located somewhere on the hill. Access to the hill is tricky, thanks to a mildly hostile farmer, and care of the hill is poor.
