O: Seems to be clearly in Somerset by approx 60m, so not sure why it's listed as being on the border and thus appearing in both Somerset and Dorset county lists.

O: This is the S summit. HP is the Somerset side of the hedge, not as per os spot height. This doesn't appear to be a Dorset hill at all - unless (raised) hedgebank taken to be HP. OS spot ht is wrongly located on E side of fence which is steeply downhill.

Up from W to cistern summit. Then south to twin summit in paddock, whose HP is the Somerset side of the hedge, not as per os spot height. This doesn't appear to be a Dorset hill at all.RHW26/02/2016
Walked up from minor road to W. Circular concrete water cistern at HP.jonglew22/10/2015
Judging by the signs on every gate the farmer is of the GOML persuasion. Ignored the signs and parked close to gate to the N and followed track along the edge of Coker Wood. Had to climb over dry stone wall, battle through a thin curtain of scrub and climb a bw fence to access the field with the circular concrete thing. Whether it's a nuclear fallout shelter, prison for abducted Albanians or reservoir I couldn't say but the efforts to keep people of this land made me suspect the worst.Herbert Anchovy29/04/2015
