From Daggers Gate. Looks like locals use the track as a road! HP in field S of reservoir.DanMaisieBex17/06/2020
Parked in Durdle Door car park. 7 mile walk taking in Hambury Tout, West Down & Chaldon hill. Lovely walk until the hail storm arrived.fosal2927/01/2020
4:30am early raid. Drove up to the transmitter station, followed by a careful zigzag route to avoid damaging the corn crop in the field to the top.DC11main30/06/2018
Parked to the east of the cross roads around SY 83625 81630. Then a stroll along track then field to explore summit and former trig site near covered reservoir with Smudge.Dugswell230/10/2016

Fairly flat topped field of grass. Pair of covered reservoirs at summit. The field is marginally higher just to SW of reservoir enclosure fence but could be due to ploughing. Fine views, a low mist creeping in from the NE. Walked up from boat anchored in Lulworth Cove. Typically, we've chosen a w/e when the range is closed to the public so failed on Bindon HillRichardM12/03/2016
