Walked over after climbing Hod Hill.fosal2910/11/2019
3.6 mile walk from car park below Hod Hill, along road east then up steeply onto Hambledon Hill, then along ridge to trig and summit, the old fort is really good with good views over the flat land west, retraced are steps to road then climbed Hod Hill with its very featureless summit, back down to car park. Later that day we did a walk taking in Win Green and Melbury Hill then later on bagged Duncliffe Hill. Sunny/showery weather.DanTrig09/10/2019

Park in lay-by by letter box at Child Okeford. Take BW straight up and through the magnificent, extensive hill fort. Enjoy the views. Stride to far end and leave hill fort on path to Trig and bag summit nearby. Very pleasurable, certainly one not to miss.Pete West20/02/2019
