Good parking to the NE by entrance to wood SE485063. Visited both possible high points.David Evans06/01/2020
Good parking at a field gate (SE 4853 0637). Woodland track then into field.jonglew11/04/2019
No longer a tump, but had to be done anyway :) Followed field edges round to the old building, now fenced offthe_adam19/11/2016
Stubbly field on hot day with add bonus of trig SW but 18m lowervegibagger23/08/2016
Along edge of field on strip which had been ploughed. HP could be in field near hedge or by folly. Came back along track in woods as easier.PeterD21/06/2016
As for Dangerous Dave.arranc12/06/2016
An easy walk along the edge of field from parking area near farm. With Evan, Sail, Danu, Coel & Alfie.Dangerous Dave04/06/2016
2nd hill of 5 with Lexi Rue, my partner's Labradoodle on a long route from Aldwick station to Barnsley. 1st hill climbed was Brodsworth Bing using Brodsworth estate track to access minor road. We took the Hooton Pagnell turn-off and then followed field edge to high point in field. Didnt visit folly this time. Descent via trig as pointer then two other woodlands en-route to Ringstone hill.Dazingdale28/05/2016
Parked alongside public footpath sign by Bilham House. Gate into wood locked so entered field into which the sign is pointing. Followed wood edge for 100m then an easy entrance into woods. From here the path cannot be seen from the house. Folly looked to be on the highest point but walked over the area to be sure (to be sure!)moorsman01/04/2016
Across the field using fp, then round field border. Field planted but sufficient tyre treads to avoid trampling on new shoots. Convinced that the hp is in the wood next to ruined castle and GPS confirmed my suspicion.Campbell Singer25/03/2016
Parked up alongside footpath on Hickleton road headed for Bilham farm then zig zagging along field edges to reach summit at field edge.i then dropped down to bag the trig point....looks a strange old building in the woods however Danger unsafe building signs meant no exploration.steven ruffles02/02/2016
Came from Melton in the south (linked this by footpath to The Ings). Followed the route used by others. Crops all harvested so no problems. Went by minor road and bridleways to Thurnscoe station. Nice walk.Moorponder11/09/2015
From start of f/p. Field harvested, so took a direct line. Doncaster completion.ngthack09/09/2015
Went to field then into woodland. Old Brodsworth hall in ruined condition.Adrian30/08/2015
Very friendly Brodsworth Archeological group were out searching the field having flagged it out into squares - 'promising geophys' they said - but just bits of pottery had been found so far - they assumed I had come to join them as I ploughed along field edge to wood and ruin, then down tractor tamlines through wheat to trig.Chris Pearson13/08/2015

Same route as Jimmy. Took the corner of field as the high point.bolieve09/04/2015
Parked at Bilham House Farm and walked along the field edge to bag the corner of the field and then inside the wood to walk around the wood with Martin Richardson before bagging the nearby trig. Inside the wood looked higher.Dugswell222/11/2014
Hickory dickey looking building on summit and also trig visit - with little Dugswell.Martin R22/11/2014
Inside wood looked higher to me than ploughed field but light poor. Should be another OS trig (surface block) S side of the ruined wall but couldn't find it.RHW15/08/2014
Parked to SE near gate almost opposite Public f/p sign. Followed f/p through middle of unidentified head-high crop (skinny runner-beans on stalks) until it met a cornfield. L along hedge following tractor trails then R along another hedge to vague high point near corner of field by wood at SE 48248 06065. Went into wood, discovered crumbling folly. Height near folly at SE 48210 06115 similar to field.Aye Jimmy04/07/2014
