Win four tickets to the top of Lord Hill’s column!

To celebrate Lord Hill’s 250th birthday, SY Homes are giving away FOUR TICKETS to climb Lord Hill’s Column - a unique, local experience.

Lord Hill’s column is 40.7 metres tall or 133ft, with a cantilevered, spiral staircase of 172 steps.  The uninterrupted views from the top platform are fantastic.  Open for only a few days each year, this is a popular local attraction.

SY Homes have FOUR tickets to give away to ONE lucky winner.  Tickets are booked for 11.30am on Saturday 6th August 2022.  The winner may share the ticket with three additional climbers, or four if they are unable to climb themselves.  Climbers must be fit enough to ascend - and descend! - 172 steps within 29 minutes.

To enter, simply find SY Homes on social media and share the competition post with three friends.  All sharers will be entered.  

SY Homes have a real fondness for Lord Hill, naming their forthcoming development of luxury homes on Abbey Foregate Lord Hill Gardens.  Phase 1 of Lord Hill Gardens is now selling, with two homes sold off-plan and just one remaining.  For details of Phase 2, register at

Lord Hill’s birthday is 11th August 1772.  The column was built in 1814-1816 in honour of his leadership on the battlefields of Waterloo and others. 

The climb is organised by the Friends of Lord Hill’s Column.

Competition opens:    Wednesday 20th July 2022

Deadline to enter:       Wednesday 27th July, 23:59.
