    if the ‘hell breaking loose’ means getting up high and away from folk – blackhope scar in the moorfoots makes sense, despite being the highest point in the lothians its surprising unvisited. 7 or 8 ascents now and I’ve only ever met a golden plover on the plateau.

    I can see worcestershire beacon from the bedroom window, 1394ft above sea level.

    Houses in the way of that view for me, but no land features (when they finish the development behind our house and I put a back gate in to the new open space I’ll be able to get a view just the other side of that). Crucially I reckon I can get to the top of that pretty much all off-road to avoid the Audi drivers – not necessarily all legal riding, but in the event of a zombie apocalypse who’s counting?

    Of course if we’re talking about a flood event then I’d probably just load up the sea kayak and sit in it until I float off – quite a long paddle to anywhere significantly higher than the Beacon (I’d guess Black Mountains 40 miles away, but could easily make that in a day).

    Hmmmm – is there something the op knows that we don’t.

    Assuming we’d an hour’s warning, I’d actually ride slightly downhill to start with, to the boat shed where my sea kayak is stored. I’d load minimal but essential kit into it and paddle around happily as the waters rose.

    You could come and stay at my new seafront pad. 🙂

    Nearest (only) high ground to me is Brentwood, with all of those TOWIE knobs there I’ll take my chances with the catacylsmic event thank you very much! 🙂

    To be fair Old Pale in Delamere would be high enough and it’d take nearly 15 minutes to get there

    I live at 900m. I’d have a lie-in.
