Continued on from Hoof Stones Height over Black Hamledon ridge and past Hare Stones. Ascent from west side of Gorple Stones. Thick 2ft wooden stake about 20m from ‘summit’.Nick Caunt30/04/2019
From the layby to N of the 389m spot height, Lad Law, then mostly following the boundary stones across to Withins Height (both tops because I forgot which was the right one!) From there back down past the reservoirs and up the road, stopping off for Hameldon on the way to the car. First real walk of 2019 so it felt a lot longer than expected... Except for a few small patches the moors seemed surprisingly dry, I wouldn't like to try this route after heavy rain though!the_adam13/04/2019

From the North after Boulsworth hill, found intermittent quad tracks on way up, but good ATV track on way back down. A choice of grassy hummocks for the HP.PeterD11/05/2018
Solo. Hoof Stones Height & Hambledon. Parked on The Long Causeway at the Lancashire/Calderdale boundary in the lay-by between ‘Lancashire welcomes careful drivers’ & ‘Welcome to Calderdale’! Followed boundary fence between summits. Grotty underfoot.ADT28/04/2018
Bitterly cold ascent after Boulsworth Hill over rough, tussocky, luckily frozen, ground. We found some tracks which eased our route. Arrived just as a red ball of sun slipped below nearby hills, causing heather to glow red. No distinctive feature at summit- grassy hummock within heather, moss and peat hags with frozen puddles. Definitely a connoisseur's hill!Denise 24/02/2018
From high point of road to N initially over rough grass but quickly finding good ATV track to summit plateau. Ground frozen. Arrive just in time to watch sunset. Bitterly coldRichardM24/02/2018
From the Widdop Reservoir car park. Delightful walk for January. Follow the fp to the signed crossroads and then go north along adequate quad track to the top.Campbell Singer30/01/2018

2nd hill of 5 today and an anticlimax from the preceding moorland features. Started At Cornholme & climbed to minor road (cycle route 68) then track to the Wolf stones, Hoof Stones Height, following the Boundary past Black Hameldon, the Hare Stones and the wonderful Gorples Stones (beautiful views) before arriving at this flat summit, visited said grid reference but seemed as high close to boundary stone. Onwards to Lad Law-Boulsworth Hill.Dazingdale18/02/2017
Worsthorne to Hebden Bridge via Wasnop Edge, Hameldon and Standing Stones Hill. Clear day but wet underfoot, particularly paths on Heptonstall Moor. Got very rudely accosted by a pair of gamekeepers who took great issue with me taking a photo that included them in, albeit at a distance.Jake99424/11/2016

Run with Liamrichardsun20/12/2015
Restricted parking available at the summit of the Colne to Hebden Bridge road (alt 1299 ft). Make sure that you pick up the good path from the south side of the road as this leads directly to the summit. After crossing the small river the path stays about 50m to the east on the drier ground. Follow this and it is an easy walk, miss it and you plough through tussocky heather. 2 miles return .... about an hour.moorsman11/06/2015

Hameldon summit view towards boundary fence and boundary stone. The moorland summit is relatively flat for this 467 metre and P75 hill. My GPS gave SD 91915 32491 for this top. Picture on Geograph.Dugswell207/04/2013
From the lonely road to the north. Nearby is the grit crag of Widdop which offers grit climbs of all grades including the wonderfully named (given its location) Reservoir Dogs at a mighty E8 7a. Been there once in? 1986? with cousin Mark (from Blackburn)-rained off.Chris Pearson03/09/2011
From ‘Limestone Trail’ carpark by minor road near Coal Clough Wind Farm SD 89385 28850. Circular walk - Hoof Stones Height - Hameldon - Hurstwood Reservoir - Cant Clough Reservoir. (I think I was bagging reservoirs too in 2004!)David Gradwell28/12/2004
