Drove up No Through Road from Aston Munslow where there is ok parking at top junction , then pleasant walk up bridle way to take right hand path which sticks to ridge .Mark Sims22/02/2020
As Jim Fothergill. Easy parking in wide entrance to Upper Barn at SO 5054 8779 - NE & then NW up RoW to plantation & then easy walking along ridge (either side of hedge) to the trig point & unmarked summit. Went as far as RichardM's high point, passing over jonglew's high point en-route. (S)gerrybowes18/02/2020
From the junction. A faint path heads along the edge of the woodland but occasionally overgrown so sometimes needed to head into the edge of the arable field and make my way along a narrow grass strip next to a mature OSR crop. Summit beyond the trig.Herbert Anchovy31/07/2019
Continued walk from Lilywood Hill, bridleway then short sharp climb through woods.rhalstead24/03/2019

As per Jim Fs route. Excellent road in, good parking, easy walk to trig and high point on wood edge.nordicstar12/01/2018
From the junction at SO 50545 87795 where there is parking on the grass at the entrance to Upper Barn. Then NE & NW up bridleways to the unmarked track on the far side of the ridge fence. Over the fence to the trig then further along to the field with the high point. Returned the same way. 33 mins 1.47 miles.Jim.Fothergill21/11/2017
Delightful views across to the Clee Hills on this perfect late October Sunday afternoon.Alex C29/10/2017
A second visit having only walked as far as the trig last time - silly me.carole engel29/07/2017
No parking down the minor road to Wetmore Farm (a gate at the end means a long reverse if you do try to drive down it). Parked to the SW where the bridleway meets the road. Long, but easy, walk to the summit just beyond the trig. 4.27km return, 50 minutes.moorsman17/05/2017
I started at Horton Hollow car pk and went via Upper Westhope to Diddlebury Common(qv) summit first the continued via Burwood, Dunstan's La, then the bw essentially on the SW ridge of Middlehope Hill. Like Diddlebury Common, no problem accessing summit of ROW; thin trail in woodland, lots of ways through to summit just in field; returned to ROW same way to go via Wetmore Fm. and Speller Coppice to walk along the scarp back to Horton Hollow car pk, the woodland below getting wilder as I walked along this section of the Shropshire Way to finish at a local nature reserve. My walk included a little extension here to enjoy the coppiced woodland and visit Wolverton Hill. Sunny, good views with the trees only just in leaf.pwheeler04/05/2017
With K. Approached using bridleway from south. A herd of deer were present in the field south of the trig.Ashley15/04/2017

Steep ascent through woods from bridleway on NW side. Good views of 'The Clees'RichardM07/02/2016
Circular walk from large roadside parking area to E of Lilywood Hill. Easy walk up on good paths, if a bit muddy in places (especially Wetmore Farm - it's in the name I suppose). Summit approx 130m NE of trig pillar; on SE side field-forest bounday hedge.jonglew13/10/2014

Parked at the bottom of Bache Hill to SW having driven up it initally in the icey conditions but failed to find anywhere to park. Theres a good track off Bache Hill almost all the way to the top via trig.Father Ted19/02/2012
a nice circuit from harton hollow wood car park along the edge, a bit of creative routemaking needed, but a satisfying 12k round. summit along the hedgerow is unmarked. trig point is lonely.. give him a hug.stig_nest02/02/2012
