    Not strictly UE because I had permission to be in the building, and indeed climb the tower of St. Matthias Church, which is at the top of North Hill in Plymouth. It probably is (unsubstantiated, to be honest) the highest point in Plymouth (or at least, the top of the tower) and has some pretty awesome views.
    Thanks go out to Roger the Vicar for allowing me to go up there! ;)

    Bigger versions of the below can be posted if people want. (particularly the third, I imagine) Its hard to keep within the image sizes for the forum!

    Looking South down North Hill towards the Sound.

    Looking North over the top of North Hill towards Mutley Plain.

    Looking East over the city, Dartmoor in the far distance. This one's a bit small to make it fit on the page, but I can link to a bigger version if people want.

    Looking West over towards Central Park - trippy perspective!

    The church bell. Quite small, because its only a Victorian church.

    All (Well, nearly all) the visitors to the top of the tower carve their names into the lead roof and sides of the little hut that covers the stairs - mine has been added to that now, but there are some dating back to 1904 and earlier.

    Arty closeup of the door and hut. ¬_¬

    Stone Masons marks, carved into the wall on the inside of the tower.

    The tower key! Wonderfully huge and heavy. Roger thought I was very odd for wanting to take pictures of it. :gay

    Aaaand that's all! Hope I've done everything right. :thumb
