It takes time sometimes to get around to doing things - going up the inside of the Monument has been on my Things to Do list since 1957 but this week the opportunity presented itself. btw there are alcovey things where one can park one's bottom and rest on the way up. However - I started to proffer the 'Concession' fee and the bod at the desk interrupted me and asked if I had had my deaf aid more than a year. Indeed I have. "You are disabled," quoth he, "So there is no charge". Not all types of diability can profit from this as there are 202 steps up and no lift! However, does anyone know where else this freebie operates? I have grubbed about on the Internet without sorting this out.
