Logged Descriptions  (logged by 26 users)ByDate of Ascent
Parked at start of Private road. Short steep walk up to the top. Then over to Long Knoll.fosal2914/02/2020
12 mile circular from Mere taking in Long Hill, Zeals Knoll, Long Knoll, Little Knoll and White Sheet Hill. From Long Knoll and entrance to Rodmead farm we walked down track to another little parking area and through open gate and up stupidly steep but short ascent onto Little Knoll, saw a deer as we ascended, not bad views south but absolutely no views north. Descended then followed lane into Rodmead farm the across field footpath to Coombe Barn farm, ascending White Sheet Hill.DanTrig08/10/2019

Walked steeply up from gate to South, leaving Xc skis at the base. Great snowy views to S, woodland behind. Highpoint not marked but reasonably obvious on grass near fence.Denise 03/02/2019
Straight up the steep snow and grass from access gate/stile at ST 806,377. Good views, area very popular with circling groups of Buzzards, Red Kites and Crows.RichardM03/02/2019
Same route as HA.PeterD06/08/2017
Up a steep bank and over the fence from the SW. Then a fairly short but steep ascent through patchily good chalk grassland. Another excellent hill with extensive views south.Herbert Anchovy03/08/2017
A distinctive steep sided little hill being an extension of the Long Knoll chalk ridge. Little Knoll appears to have escaped being temporarily turned into a breast unlike its bigger sibling which in 2012 as part of Breast Cancer awareness had an illuminated plastic dome (nipple) added to its summit to make it look like a breast. The artist (A Mr Munro !) lives below Long Knoll and creates fields of light at dusk / night to connect with the human spirit.Chris Pearson30/07/2016

Mere to Warminster. Access land stile is c.ST806377.Smudge27/12/2014
Parking at junc private road (to Rodmead Farm) and B3092. Short walk up to summit. Boundary fence running E-W over summit with woodland to N so no views in that direction; views S, and partially E and W, make up for it - Alfred's Tower, Long Knoll, White Sheet Hill etc.jonglew19/10/2014
Park at start of Private road, short walk to the top.rhalstead05/10/2013
Small parking area at junction with track at ST 80388 38086. Walked south along track then had to scrabble up a steep bank and climb fence at ST 80411 37860 to gain west ridge. Highest point 2m S of fence at ST 80737 37822.David Gradwell03/04/2012
