The words “Text me Rent lad” scrawled on a map board along with a mobile number testify to what sometimes happens on the hill after dark. Unfortunately it has a reputation for this kind of activity. There are no straightforward solutions to the policing of this huge open space but I have wondered if the patrols that were once carried out there on horseback should be reinstated.
