Cheltenham has to be the steepest place in Britain, since that's where Eddie the Eagle comes from - right? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_%22The_Eagle%22_Edwards for those who don't know this classic British hero.
And then there's Parys Mountain, on Angelsey, which I managed to drive over without realising it was there (or even changing gear).
Still, thinking back, if you want viciously cold winter walking conditions: anyone remember the description I put in "when the snow lay roundabout"? That was based on a walk across Kinder Scout, in the Peak District, max height 636m. Frozen waterfalls, snow way above your head, the lot, and a chill factor such that touching metal bare-handed meant losing skin. The nearest I met to a man-eating monster was an over-excited Jack Russell, though.
