This is also a wonderful place to go star gazing. It is often higher than the cloud cover which gives it a bonus and far enough away from city lights for light pollution not to be a problem. It is quiet enough that you can go there with a large group and not need to worry about making noise to disturb neighbors. Be careful though as it is easy to wonder into the road without realising and the occasional traffic can appear suddenly.
Even a small telescope is worth taking there. It is a great place to look at stars and when the moon is in its final quarter, it is good to look at as you can see the craters and also the shadow moving across the surface.

So where is the windmill?
Put one up there and wire it direct to the council chambers as the sole source of power.

This sounds like an ideal place to put up windmills to produce non polluting power. We enviromentalist must get organized so that can happen. It may take state action to require wind power where feasible. It's govermant owned land and probably isolated from neighbors in many areas. In fact the whole skyline could be lined with windmills as this is one of the most non polluting power source.
I would expect no opposition from true envirmentalista!
