Parked on side of road to south west. Jumped out of car, ran to the summit in about 20 seconds (and bagged trig point), then ran back to car before heading for a fab lunch at Woods in Dulverton. One of the easiest hills you could bag without making a walk of it.RichieRambler28/08/2019

Short hop from roadside parking on B3223. Trig pillar sits beside a Bronze Age bowl barrow. The barrow is higher and has been part of the landscape for 3,000+ years - it's the HP of the hill.jonglew04/04/2016
