The summit of Black Mountain
|Summit:|| 2,306 feet SO255350 |
Black Mountain is the highest peak on the Hatterrall Ridge, the easternmost outlier of the Black Mountains. Black Mountain is the county top of Herefordshire - that county's highest point - though the ridge and Black Mountain mark the boundary between Brecknockshire to the west and Herefordshire to the east and consequently the mountain summit is in both.
The summit is unmarked and, because of the very shallow gradients along the summit ridge, virtually impossible to determine in situ.
