With Val. Called at Acre House and the landowner very kindly gave permission and showed us the quickest route to the TP. Not the most exciting Marilyn in the country but it is now bagged. Due to Covid 19 this is my first Marilyn this year.mike.hoult06/07/2020
From Acre House. Permission granted by phoning land owner - helpful directions given. Climbed over wooden gate at end of second field south of AH, followed hedge to right and kept to hedge on right in next field. Trig point to left of hedge.peter4lc05/06/2020
Circuit on a very grey day from Rothwell via Rothwell Top Farm, then along the hedgerow to pick up the top, along with several yellowhammers and hundreds of migrating golden plovers. Walked back via Nettleton Grange (very thick churned-up clay; absolutely requires wellies and a good balance) and over round the N and E of Rothwell Stackgarth. A very quiet and varied walk with some good views over the Humber in places.jkl15/03/2020

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).

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
