yes exactly, that path looks like belt! :DD

Meanwhile, this hill got name "churchhill" because of slopes similarity to other artifical church hills in neibhour. But real churches was never built there. Most ancient historic pergaments about this area history, fortress or forts on this hilltop was seen since 1000 years ago. But now there is nothing saved from historic times except great panoramic view to walley. :))

Ahaa, I made a mistake, I read Churchill (like Winston Churchill), and I wondered when Churchill went in this region. :D

As soon I remember about W.Churchill, him still are searching for lost cigar somewhere in grass under shadowed trees in Copenhagen's park. :(

When I was in Madeira, I went in the restaurant, where Churchill used to stay when he was on holidays. :)
