Hills Database Updated

We've just imported the latest version of the Database of British and Irish hills which adds another four British hills to our database. We were previously on version 16 and we're now on 16.1 which was released on 3rd August 2018.

2202 hills were updated, mostly the positions of tops and a lot have moved by small distances so if you want to see a list of all the changes, to names, summit feature, locations, and classifications it can be found here.

There are few significant changes to hill lists:

45 were added including Lease Knott in the Lakes.


As usual your bagging lists will have been automatically updated as appropriate.
