One thing is to enjoy the view by doing either of two things walking be that at monument or the near by woodland. Another way to enjoy the view is by going to the monuments roof where you can see for miles. It is pet friendly so you can even take your dog for walk.

A second thing to do is go geocaching.  Geocaching is a version of treasure hunting  with GPS device or mobile phone. Find more about geocaching with [link]

Finally a third option is to volunteer. There are many different types of volunteering they offer be that volunteer litter picking to the monument guides.
