From lane/gate. Quick up and back through longish grass. A fairly decent spot if an undistinguished summit but you wish you were on one of the tops just over the way..stig_nest19/05/2017

By a stroke of luck the farmer was just entering his field in a tractor. I asked if he would mind me following in his tracks and photographing the distant hills from the highest point at the end. No problems as there was no crops or animals in it.moorsman19/01/2017

Pastoral peacefulness far from the madding crowd. Gates from lane top to a good viewpoint. Below at Glutton Bridge hamlet is the unlikely location of the British Caving Library (visitors welcome by appointment)They have over 12,000 items including books, journals, maps, surveys and DVDs with complete runs of The British Caver and Descent and 328 non-UK journal titles including titles such as the wonderfully named Spelunca & Speleologia.Chris Pearson10/08/2015
