From Acre Farm to west, parking on verge. Fields harvested- stubble. Hazy views. My first new English Marilyn for ages.Denise 14/09/2019
Visited on my own while on a hill bagging trip to Lincolnshire and surrounding areas.magirob11/09/2019
Called at Acre House and permission to visit freely given. As recommended left road at TF 116962 and followed field boundaries (grass strip in first field and tramlines in second). Also went through gap east of trig to wander round field to south, which seemed as high (crop had been harvested in this field)AlanD20/08/2019

From Caister along the viking way and field edges,with Ellie dog.BLACKHILL11/02/2019
Followed hedgeline at side of field to W of the radar. The trig point was on the N side of the hedge at the t junction of hedges shown on the map. Rather than heading back the same way I continued N along the hedge down to the RoW, but this was more visible to the farm to the NW.Wheelsy03/11/2018

Bridleway from Acre House, 17 degrees, drizzle, quite pleasant.Wycombe Wanderer25/09/2017
County top reached while walking a challenge event in the area which went passed using the Viking way so popped up the field edge for two fields to reach the trig.WAYNE ROWLETT16/09/2017
From Nettleton. Easy to head up to the trig along the hedge.twg2702/09/2017
GMn with permission from a very nice farmer.Idris20/08/2017
Normanby Top the hard way. Train from Market Rasen to Barnetby and walked back along the Viking Way. A small detour to bag the Marilyn using NGThack's route, and back on the E side of the hedge, as the field had been ploughed. Easy going on the headlands both sides of hedge. The best bit of the walk is from Normanby to Market Rasen, nice paths and good views. The last bit is through a nice forest. The bit from Barnetby to Normanby is reminiscent of Essex hybridised with Staffordshire, and the shiny new mansions would not be out of place in Northern Ireland, but there are good cafes in Caistor and Nettleton. Nettles and thistles make shorts inadvisable, and a machete would be useful when trying to negotiate the paths through maize fields. Warning: dry weather is best; would be somewhat unpleasant and muddy in wet weather. NOTE: From discussion on Facebook: the farmer who owns the fields on the Radar Station side does not want walkers on his land. Use the Acre Farm approach.Gill18/08/2017

From radar station to the South, along hedge? Approach from North looked much easier.PeterD21/06/2016
Parked across road from Acre Farm, in yard of huge green barn. Knocked on door of Acre farm for permission. Knew what I wanted before I opened my mouth. Advice on route & permission readily granted. Along Viking Way until it branches off. Keep straight on along track until due north of trig. Over rickety double gate (hinge end best). Keep to west of hedge line along tramlines through young barley, to trig.ngthack14/06/2016
