The star disc overlooks the valley both ways.Stunning views and atmosphere. It's well worth a walk up to it or if you're not feeling energetic there's easy parking on the adjacent road. We regularly practise our qigong up there in the summer. Take a picnic...More

Amazing views from the Star disc, definitely worth the climb up the steep hill. Goes past some really historic buildings too!
