Brent Knoll

The hill, which was once and Iron Age hillfort, is associated with an Arthurian Legend, and was the abode of three fearsome giants.

The hill is famed as the legendary Mount of Frogs, and was guarded by three giants. One of Arthur's knights, Ider, son of Nuth, had to quest to the mount and slay all the giants single handed to prove his virtue as a knight, unfortunately he perished in the attempt. Arthur, remorseful that he had sent the young knight to his death gave Brent Marsh to the Monks of Glastonbury, so that they could give pray to the memory of Ider.

The hill was probably used as a beacon site after the Iron Age to warn of trouble from afar.
