Parked in pull in due south. Didn't notice the path up so trudged over the wet tussocks to the trig at the summit. Back down via the much easier path.fosal2919/09/2019

From lay-by to south. Path to Trig. Had to disturb a number of Exmoor Ponies who were Trig bagging themselves to reach trig. They soon returned once I left.PeterD27/06/2018
Ran from Withypool up to Withypool Hill across to Withypool Common. Then down to the River Barle which I walked through and up to Thornmeade Hill with a return along the Two Moors Way. It was a cloudy day with occasional brightness and a bit of drizzle. Time taken 2hours 15 minutes for 8 miles. No other people seen on the hills. Plenty of Wildlife including Raven, Buzzard, Snow Bunting, Robin, Snipe, Stonechat, Bullfinch, Chaffinch and Winter Thrushes.isabelle04/12/2017

Dirt pull-in on minor road due S. 600m trudge over tough tussocky ground, followed path on return - much easier! Brightworthy Barrows was 3 Bronze Age round barrows, of which only 1 now exists, and with trig pillar atop is the HP.jonglew03/04/2016
