SCOTLAND and WALES
have mountains higher than any in England:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Nevis

The mountain, Ben Nevis, commonly known as "The Ben," is 1,344 metres (4,409 ft) above sea level,
in the Scottish Highlands
- the highest mountain in the British Isles.

Wales:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowdon
Snowdon (Welsh: Yr Wyddfa, pronounced is the highest mountain in Wales and is Great Britain's highest mountain south of the Scottish Highlands.
It is also higher than anywhere in Ireland. 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) above sea level. In terms of 'absolute height' it is the same height as Table Mountain in South Africa.

Members please post here.  What are your ideas on survival sites on land at high elevations in the
UK and neighboring countries.
Is it possible to get any real estate on or near one of these high points in the UK? From what I have read it looks like these lands are in government trust.
?

For people living in the south and south-west of England, Scotland and Cumbria are not the easiest places to get to. The Peak District (Derbyshire/Buxton) are nearer. Nearest of all, for people living in the south-west, are the high Welsh mountains - the Black Mountains and Brecon - but they're pretty near the sea and if there is likely to be a huge tsunami up the Bristol Channel...

Does anyone know any dryish caves which aren't too far from Abergavenny?

Vonbath, it's good to hear from you again... and you have presented more data which could prove useful in the future.  - Yowbarb

RE Caves

http://www.cavinguk.co.uk/info/Limestone.htm   
Caves in the Abergavenny area  Overview map

What mountains can hold caves in the Abergavenny area?The only mountains in the Abergavenny area that can hold caves are to the South and the West. This is where the limestone reaches the surface. The main mountains in which caves can or have been found in the area are:
•The Blorenge, a 500m high mountain with a concave and very steep North face.
•Gilwern Hill, a smaller version of The Blorenge.
•Llanelly Hill, a ridge running to the south of the Clydach Gorge, to the West of Gilwern Hill.
•Mynydd Llangattock (or Mynydd Llangatwg) a wide mountain to the North of the Clydach Gorge, with three sides consisting of cliffs.
•Mynydd Llangynidr, another wide mountain to the West of the last.
•Trefil Moor, a Western continuation of Mynydd Llangynidr.
•Many more mountains stretching to the West in the range.
 Why are caves formed around the Abergavenny area?Caves tend to occur anywhere where there is limestone, and the Abergavenny area has an abundance of it. Also, it is at the South edge of the ice field from the last ice age.

Burrington Combe near Cheddar in Somerset is 1068 feet above sea level. A couple of points on the Mendips are 1000 feet above sea level too.

Carrauntoohil

Carrauntoohil or Carrantuohill[2] ( /ˌkærənˈtuːl/, from Irish: Corrán Tuathail)[1] is the highest peak in Ireland. Located in County Kerry, it is 1,038 metres (3,406 ft)[3] tall and is the central peak of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks range. There are two other peaks in this range higher than 1,000 m—Beenkeragh (1,010 m) and Caher (1,001 m). The peak of Carrauntoohil is topped by a large metal cross 5 metres (16 ft) tall.

It is possible to get from London, England to the one of the highest
elevations in England in a few hours. Driving it's about the same amt of time.
Go to google maps and click "Get directions." Plug in point A and Point B.
A person would have to double check all this info. this is just to give some idea.
RE: This highest elevation area, I think virtually all of it is owned by Queens'
government reserve. - (Forgive I don't know exact terminology.) I feel it is
possible to purchase some land in the area, which would be "high above the
waves in England."  -Yowbarb

vonbath, where are you? Looks like you need to reapply. Thanks for your ideas.
Below is an image from The Peak District, which I went over on a bus to Buxton -
wonderful!  It is not the exact type of bus but similar...Macclesfield England to Buxton...
First, click this link it is the same bus line I was on, Macclesfield to Buxton. The bus passes the Cat and Fiddle Inn, one of the
highest points in England...
