Parked off the road at the sharp bend. Plodded round sodden field on conservation strip. The hunt was about, but seem disinterest in my to be equally odd pursuit. My second of the day but not a great bag.Pete West20/02/2020

Boring. One of those that makes you feel a bit of an anorak for doing it.clivevilla04/12/2013
The crop was at ground level so had a good look around. The summit seemed to be along the hedge bank in the vicinity of a holly tree, as per the GR. I also visited the Gore Hill Trig which appeared to be the highest point on that part of the hill.Chris Peart01/01/2013
An extremely windy day. Needed to do a trespass into a barley field to gain the summit, but quite close to the field boundary so no crop damage done.jonglew16/06/2012
Parked just across from the top in the fieldchrisbien22/05/2012
Parked on verge and then through a gap in the hedge. I thought the highest point was somewhere on the hedge bank but I guess that's a man made feature.Herbert Anchovy14/05/2012
