Sunny walk across field.Dugswell223/02/2019
From the old road to east, across field that had been cut. HP near field boundary.PeterD02/09/2018
Bagged at third attempt. Barley harvested in last week.Ramblingpaul31/07/2018
Parked in Green Street. HP is the far side of a large arable field so better when cropless.clivevilla10/04/2018
From bridleway to NW up through woods to summit field planted with wheat(?) An easily negotiated Hawthorn hedge bounds top of wood. Great veins of gypsum in cliff bounding E side of path through Clifton Wood.RichardM19/03/2018
Parked at Clifton Hall to the NE then followed bridleway SE until the start of Brandshill Wood. Straightforward climb up through the wood, although I could imagine the brambles might be a problem in the summer. No fence at the top so easy access into the field.Wheelsy11/02/2018
From old A453 - Green Street. Goo dparking at SK 5383 3355. Followed field boundary, very muddy, but even muddier planted arable field. HP approx 20m into field from woodland boundary. With Carole Engel.jonglew28/12/2017
Harder than I expected up though wood and down again . Covered in rape seed blossom from field edge.Mark Sims22/04/2017
From old A453. No access from new road & nowhere to pull off either.ngthack10/03/2016
Could have taken Gordon Adshead's route which is shorter and easier but very muddy in January. Instead took the footpath from Barton in Fabis and climbed up through steep but straightforward woods. Could be overgrown in the summer.Campbell Singer15/01/2016
East Leake to Clifton.Smudge28/12/2015
No problem from 538 335 on old main road just SW of roundabout with the new dual carriageway. Round the field edges, which were very wide and included the high point.GordonAdshead16/07/2015
Major roadworks on A453 and fields with growing crops, so parked in Barton in Fabis. Back east along road for 150m then took bridleway to Clifton. Across field into wood, soon steep track on R leads to field above. Edge of wood followed to gently rounded top. Curious 3m diameter circular patch of forget-me-nots near summit (in May), doesn't seem natural somehow.Aye Jimmy20/05/2015
Third hill of Four today starting from East Leake; Court hill,Gotham hill and then a long walk down onto minor lane alongside A453 and was going to take Barton lane but this had disappeared from East side so walked on and took New road underneath the A453 leading onto Barton lane,veering off this to cut through wooded area and onto the open hillside. Followed steep woodland up to summit which is a grassy knoll near crops but a few metres back from steep wooded slope. Great views back to the power station.Dazingdale30/01/2015
Pulled off main road and croseed ploughed field to summit which was pasture. Views to Nottingham.Adrian28/09/2014
