From track/road junction. Visited W side of pond, TP and reservoir top.summitsup23/06/2020

Took a lot longer than anticipated due to road to the south being closed due to roadworks. However, when the road is open there is parking available close to Ridley Bank Farm, then a short walk along good tracks to the trig point.moorsman06/03/2020
RoW from the A536 to trig pillar. Good views albeit under uninspiring grey skiesRichardM13/01/2019
1/4 Feels just about nothing like a hill. Public RoW feels almost like a trap. Spoilt for choice for entry points to reservoir, then confusion as to what to do next. Ambled around.tumpawumpa01/01/2019
Room for a car without blocking field gate at SJ 5653 5383. OS have a 127m spot height on the large covered reservoir although 125m point at the trig is most likely the natural HP. Resr compound is low security for a look round.jonglew23/11/2018
Verge parking then stroll along track to trig and likely high pointsBramley09/10/2018
Sunny stroll up track to trig then a good look at the likely high points. Easy parking o road at start of track.Dugswell229/09/2018
Parked opposite Ridley Bank Farm just to the side of the gate that leads up to the trig and reservoir. 10 minute bagLongwojo17/02/2018
Parked at side of concrete road. Easy stroll up. Surprisingly good views north at the top.Campbell Singer17/10/2017
.. in passing.Moorponder28/09/2017
Parked in layby on A49(S) near entrance to Meadow Farm. Cycled N, then SE on A534. Through farm gate, which states No Hunting, and up the concrete road. Avoiding at herd of cows felt like real life Moo-Moo Meadows on the Wii. Reservoir, Trig, cow patts duly bagged.Minto19/08/2017
Ninth top of a short day tidying up the Cheshire Tumps of the immediate area. A simple walk along a farm track. Visited trig and hopped the gate onto reservoir. Lovely day..too many flies though.stig_nest18/07/2017
1st of 7 hills today in two parts VIA public transport & walking. Nottm to Derby, train to Crewe then due to line closure due to suicide, took bus to Nantwich & finally pre-ordered taxi to Ridley. Walked through wood but no higher ground than reservoir which i walked over to track to Trig, also climbed over fence as ground in field is similar to trig height. Continued on fp towards Peckforton Point....Dazingdale25/02/2017
Walked up from A534. Good view of Peckforton and Beeston castles.Richard Gunn05/02/2017
