Approached from bend on Bog Heights road to motorway bridge then up through a few gates took a longer route than expected due to horses at first gatecolinfielding27/05/2020
From west on FP, on a wet day, met farmer at barn who gave me permission to go to top, via gate.PeterD24/09/2019
Via path/track to SW. What's this about the path being closed? I have my doubts.Wycombe Wanderer11/04/2019
Approached from the SW but people in the fields so retried from the north. Shorter and easier.moorsman09/03/2019
Good parking to the ENE at road corner SD672247.David Evans25/02/2019

Early Sunday morning. Parked in farm road entrance and walked along past houses in Bog Height Rd. As Chris Bien. Very large inquisitive horse.Campbell Singer02/09/2018
Started walk from the Royal Arms in Tockholes and made our way by Roddlesworth Reservoir, to cross the M65 to the Tump, then it was onto the Trig Pillar of Fernhurst Hill, and back across the M65 to the Tump of Winter Hill, then easy stroll back to TockholesWayne Mac22/06/2018
P on Bog Height Rd just W of sharp corner. Track alongside house and through 2 fields.chrisbien07/12/2017
1st hill of 5 from Mill Hill station climbing up to nearby farm having explored Trig 1st and said Hello to the Highland Coos with back yard full abandoned stuff. Climbed over tall wall to explore summit; pretty vague but patch of coarse grass seemed highest. Checked adjacent field but was no higher,continuing on to Hoghton Tower.Dazingdale16/09/2017

From large lay by (easy access to trig) track at side of last house, over gates to top.Bramley26/05/2017
A lovely sunny day out with Dad on a nostalgic trip down memory lane from his days of growing up in Blackburn. He waited in the car looking out over his home town for the 15 mins I took along fp from east to top and back. 3 piles of earth/ stone now crown the summit and are becoming grassed over -the highest conical one succumbed to a run at it. Also to trig by car park layby.Chris Pearson27/03/2017
Parked at lay-by near Fernhurst Hill trig,then took footpath from south-west of top(this path is almost blocked as fence has collapsed).Not very exciting.catman14/03/2016
With Jo, circular walk from Roddlesworth Information Centre: paths to Winter Hill, then onto Fernhurst Hill Trig, then followed David Gradwell’s route to Bog Bank, before returning along road through Tockholes. Weather; sunny, warm, good visibility.amblerbob23/02/2016
Parked ene as DG. His RoW now claimed closed so used path from ERHW18/10/2015
As AJ, but gate across track with private sign. Nice lady at the stud said it was ok to go through & showed me the way. Through little wooden gate by caravan & across field.ngthack04/10/2015
Bit overgrown on the top and with dogs about it's not the most pleasant spot for a sit down. The nearby trig at 218m is worth a visit if you can tolerate walking along the fast road.Jake99414/09/2014
Parked to W near row of cottages on road from Blackburn - Tockholes. Public f/p to Hodden Fold Stud leads E past two farms and sign 'Beware dogs running free'. Met them, alsation and rottweiler, not too hungry today. Just before third farm went up grass slope to flattish area at head of field near junction of walls, gate and lots of horses. Highest point vague.Aye Jimmy26/07/2014
From lay-by to ENE at bend in minor road at SD 67249 24717 (near Fernhurst Hill trig). Walked west along road to track at side of last house. Up to gate (stile here) then another gate (no stile). Highest point is on the left at SD 66886 24557 c50m from gap/gate in wall. No feature: rough grass.David Gradwell21/09/2013
