|Hp is at edge of steep bank, by a low wooden fence with grass and bramble underfoot. There are a few views and a few trees, Motoway noise is intrusive. Pleasant walk up through woodland and rough grass on woodland path ( free map from Reception) from westbank of Trent accessed via small bridge west of the huge Garden Centre, as marked on map, but not signposted from the free carpark. Follow small road towards golf course; ignore turning to church. Small parking area also at start of path. The summit is outside the paid- for Trentham Gardens .||Denise||26/12/2017|
|Outside of Trentham Gardens fee paying area. We walked up from the huge free Trentham Gardens car park. Pleasant lightly wooded sand/pebble summit though M6 noise intrusive.||RichardM||26/12/2017|
|From layby to SW at 853399. Over motorway footbridge and up an obvious path which bends left near the top. HP is just over a low fence by the edge.||clivevilla||15/12/2017|
|Short climb from layby on A519. Snow showers on the way up.||RoguePulsar||08/12/2017|

Main top has an inferior view to that from the western top.||stig_nest||29/04/2017|
|As per Dugswell 2.||arranc||19/02/2017|
|Parked in large lay-by on A519 then over the M6 bridge to walk along the quarry edge. Good milestone near parking spot.||Dugswell2||14/01/2017|
|Parked in large lay-by on A519 (SJ 85296 40018). Visited all 4 summits as described by RHW.||David Evans||12/12/2016|
|Eight-tump circuit west from Trentham Gardens: Oulton Heath - Coombesdale Hill - The Ridding - Berth Hill - Camp Hill - Whitmore Heath - Hanchurch Hills - Kingswood Bank. Hoped to traverse from the north but thwarted by high barbed wire fence on motorway bridge at SJ852408 so headed 800m south along road to ascend by public footpath instead. Visited all four summit contenders. Good views both sides of the ridge.||davidpettit84||23/10/2016|
|As RHW, from good parking spot on A519 to SW. Then bridge/track over M6 and up hillside to high point overlooking craggy hillside.||Aye Jimmy||06/03/2016|
|From Monkey Forest cp. Past the Go Ape stuff & follow Trentham Gardens boundary fence through two gates & down a dell, over a bridge & steeply up the other side. To the four bumps on the ridge. Woods closed due to high winds, but ignored it because it wasn't windy.||ngthack||18/11/2015|
|From SW, good parking at start of farm tk/bw. Visited all 4 summits, from SE to NW 1) 183m on 10k (SJ 85815 40160 tree stump); 2) small co but possibly the highest (SJ 85660 40319 quarry edge); 3) 188m on 1:50k but obviously lower (SJ 85643 40401); 4) 184m on 1:10k (SJ 85560 40509). On basis of 1:10k 4) is highest although 2) may be higher, needs a survey.||RHW||24/01/2015|
|From bridge over what must be the noisiest and busiest part of the M6: An SSSI inside a 6 foot high wire grid fence, but with wooden footpath gate. Following comments from RHW, (expecting the grid ref to be revised) I went back on 21/01/2015 to visit the true high point on the ridge running North from the SSSI||GordonAdshead||06/08/2014|
|Tittensor Hill and Kingswood Bank from Trentham Garden Carpark. Had a good walk around the mapped high point inside and outside the Trentham estate.||rhalstead||01/03/2014|
|Point to N of ROW is shown as 188m, both visited||PeteF||15/05/2013|
