Hump bagging drive around the South East before moving North.atreides788708/08/2020
Parked in the car park at the Cat & Custard (plenty of space) and then followed a narrow lane and field margins to the high point. Best to bring a GPS to get an accurate fix.Gerry the Ranger05/08/2020
As a detour from NDW. Circled field and went through other fields to the reservoir with its locked gate and view of the trig pointlerritt07/07/2020
Parked at the Cat Custard and walked down lay, and through field towards trig. No trig found in hedgerow but google maps said we were stood on the right spot.Hippy7716/02/2020

From the Parking Space near the Church, along field edge then carefully negotiated crops to reach the high point on the field boundary. Not Worth a proper walk so headed off to explore elsewhere. Quick visit to the church which was niceJephcote8315/06/2019
Very easy Marilyn after arriving back through tunnelMark Sims02/05/2019
As others from pub car park round field edges, plus trig visit.N.Morters25/04/2019
Parked by church. A wild and windy walk to summit and then short circular back. Day before Sevenoaks Circular.MichaelF16/03/2019
Parked in the car park at the rear of the Cat and Custard. Field margins to high point - trig enclosed in water reservoir area fenced off.Drove down to view the Channel Tunnel complex.NormanW15/02/2019
Managed to park on grass verge at TR 19670 39790, to avoid using pub car park. Then a deviation from the line of the RoW passing through the same field.Isbjorn08/11/2018
Walked up from near Peene. Pleasant but uninspiring. Earlier walk on White Cliffs was much more fun.IanHHill29/09/2018
Short walk from the west past natural summit to roof of reservoirTopographer5707/08/2018

Hard to call this an ascent! Drove all the way from South Wales to bag my last two Kent Marilyns and do some geocaching. Parked by the junction where the pub and church are then down the track and across the field diverting off the footpath for the last 100 meters or so to get to the given grid ref.Father Ted20/05/2018
11/11 Interesting drive following sat nav! From pub (closed) car park in the dark followed track and field edge. Drove down a different way.SS09/02/2018
Summit is a hedge row in a field also there 2 trigs close by one is a reservoir compound and the other over looks the Euro tunnel. also great to visit the pillar boxes down the road.jmistry8618/01/2018

2/3 solo birthday kentumping. Unsatisfying Marilyn! Wat high point when farmer drove ominously into field. Didn't give me nae bother though.tumpawumpa24/10/2017

From Aerodrome road through fields.rhalstead09/09/2017
First hill of the day on my whirlwind tour of Southeastern Marilyns. The walk from the parking space at the Cat and Custard, Paddlesworth, must be all of 300 m and perhaps 5 m of ascent, but the hill doesn't seem exciting enough to merit extension to a longer walk. Instead of a nice walk, I had a nice chat with the owner of the field. He was surprised to hear that he owns a Marilyn.Gill08/07/2017
With K. I slept around here somewhere in a van years ago.Ashley30/04/2017
Part of a very pleasant circuit N of Folkestone. Disappointing with no distinct summit point, but HP assessed as on reddish farm track by road side, S of aerial and W of reservoir. Reservoir is being expanded ( major work-completion due June 17) and the trig, also visited is intact and protected.Denise 22/04/2017
Circular walk from Etchinghill and back along NDW.prwild08/04/2017
Sandling stn - Blackhouse Hill - Summerhouse Hill - Tolsford Hill - Cheriton Hill - Sugarloaf Hill - Swinge Hill - Folkestone station. A strong contender for best Tump walk in Kent? Summerhouse and Sugarloaf are remarkable hills.Mark Jackson04/03/2017
Easily up from Cat and Custard Pot on drab,overcast day.Beware-there are some extremely narrow back roads round here which the sat-nav took a fancy to!catman12/12/2016
From a parking spot at a road junction just to the NE of Peene (TR189381). Write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2016/11/cheriton-hill.htmlGayle05/11/2016
From Cat & Custard pot. Definitely worth walking down to the viewpoint on the edge of the downs to see the massive Euro tunnel train depot.twg2715/09/2016
An awful long way to drive to tick off what amounted to a brief stroll along a track then field edge to the actual top.Cas-gwent05/04/2016
Second hill of the day. Parked in the carpark near the Cat and Custard pub and took the short walk to the summit via the public footpath and the edge of the crop field.Peterb21/02/2016
From the Cat & Custard pub with Peterb. Very uninspiring top but good to tick off last Marilyn in section 42.bowlesy21/02/2016
To make this more interesting we started at Castle Hill, Folkestone CT19 4QB (51.096349, 1.155481). This route was 4.9 miles return. Park in Castle Hill just off the M20. Walk up Castle Hill until you reach Crete Road West where you turn left. Walk for a few hundred yards before turning right onto the footpath just past the kennels. Follow the footpath until you reach a crossroads with Gibraltar Lane. Turn left and walk until you reach the T junction with Elvington Lane. Follow the footpath opposite the end of Gibraltar Lane and cross the fields heading towards the farm house. The path crosses a track and continues until you reach the Lane. A few yards down on the opposite site you will see a pond with a footpath to the right, take this. Enter the fields via the pedestrian gate and walk across the middle of the field, passing through gates in the middle before you reach the other gate. There are horses in here. Summit is in field on left past mast.tankbay20/02/2016

Daft summit, but viewpoint to South is worth the diversion.huwthomas12/09/2015
Parked close to the Cat and Custard Pot pub then a short walk to what appears to be the highest point at the SW end of the mast and old shelter.bolton13/11/2014

Parked by the junction opposite the Cat & Custard pub in Paddlesworth ESE along minor road & then along track towards the transmitter mast At stile, headed SSW alongside fence to the summit. (S)gerrybowes30/10/2014
A good HF SOTA activation with Phil G4OBK before getting the ferry to France.G4OOE22/06/2014
Huge Great Dane honking at me in the field next door.simon and co07/03/2014
Visited before seeing my sister at Folkestone. I turned off the motorway at junction 11a thinking this was the nearest exit to the hill, only to find there is no escape from the Channel Tunnel tolls. After a bit of explaining to the chap in the booth we were given a rejection ticket and told how to escape a trip to France. Parked outside the pub at Paddlesworth which has a large war time shell outside, hopefully its a dud. Views limited from top but France was clearly seen as the weather had cleared after the recent storms.mindlessflogger26/12/2013
Gentle ramble from HawkingeAndrewFinnimore25/11/2013
another daft summit.. the farmer had just rolled the field which was nice of him.. the view rather hazy this morning.stig_nest24/09/2013
W Jenx, parking by Cat and Custard Pot pub (nice pint after in sun). Easy walk down lane and track to horse field and 'top'. Views limited, walked on to trig nearby, not a lot better. Warm sunny day made up for it.nordicstar07/07/2013
Parked by pub - not the most inspiring topBramley05/04/2013
Short walk from Cat & Custard pub. Not much to see.hmt100016/05/2012
