From the adjacent roadside. Parking in a manner that isn’t blocking anyone’s way is difficult but possible.lenman08/08/2019
1st of 4 Tumps on a 28km route from Mickleton to Stratford. Train to Birmingham then walk to Moor Street, followed by train to Stratford and Bus to start. I dropped into Hidcote gardens 1st then used the bridleway to get close to the start with a quick hop over the gate, followed by a walk around including the edges. Descent as outward but then took the Heart of England Way heading for Meon hill.. ..Dazingdale22/06/2019
Parked in Mickleton and followed path past Hidcote Manor. Continued until directly S of trig, before bagging this and then continued across the road to the HP, which was accessed by climbing over metal gate. Good views from trig point but poor from HP.Wheelsy02/06/2019
Visited the trig but not the highpoint years ago. HP in field, accessible via tractor track. Trig has better views! Parked by aerial.Denise 27/05/2019
Having visited the area on many previous occasions this is the first to the field.RichardM27/05/2019
Parked up next to radio station, walked over into field with very low crops to what appeared to be highest point. Smelled nice and great viewspenbet17/05/2019
Walked this County Top with a 3 mile loop from Hidcote BoyceD SID01/04/2019
On own. Early morning visit. Parked on grassy area by telecomms station. Across road, through gate and into ploughed field. Fortunately no crops but could be difficult at another time of year. Whole field looks similar height but GPS helped locate exact 10 fig OS grid ref. No feature. Low cloud meant nothing to see! Went over to trig point on wall as well.Beeliner21/03/2019
With Jenx and Bryher from the lovely Hidcote gardens, not open sadly. Picked up the trig too, much nicer viewpoint. Good circular walk and Section 39 Humps complete.nordicstar03/01/2019
All quiet at Hidcote apart from the busy gardeners.jenx03/01/2019

Cycled up as part of a trip to Wales. Didn't actually climb over the fate to the spot height.tsharp27/05/2018
Walked up from Hidcote as others. Wandered along various field edges but criss-crossing the young crop to justify an extra inch or two seemed unjustified. Visited the trig on the way back.milimana11/05/2018

Crop still in field but able to wander through it and around.KC05/11/2017
Parked at Hidcote, nice gentle walk up to the Warks/Gloucs. border with the Jubilee Stone. Actual highpoint inaccessible - gated field and very tall foliage! Our first county top!UKHighpoints24/09/2017
Nice stroll in the summer sunshine from Hidcote Manor Garden car park up to the trig point where I relaxed for a while. Then headed to the true summit in the farmers field across the road.Gerry the Ranger17/08/2017
From Mickleton via Hidcote Hall. Nice views over the Vale of Evesham.mart079710/08/2017
Parked by transmitter to bag hill and trigRamblingpaul15/06/2017
The field had just been ploughed, but fortunately not too muddy. BW to South seemed higher. Also visited trig point .PeterD06/11/2016
Did the 'up' of Ebrington Hill [locally pronounced Yibberton] a.m. from Hicote NT. Summit on headland just beyond radio station. Then p.m. finished the ascent on our return walk to Hidcote from Meon Hill.sooztops17/10/2016
An easy sunny walk from Hidcote Gardens.edmundjohnson07/07/2016
The latest of several ascents of this hill - commonly known as Ilmington Hill. Indeed the best ascents start from Ilmington or the lanes on the east side of the hill.JohnW06/07/2016
Drove to the transmitter and parked on the verge, quick wander around the path and field on the opposite side of the road to the transmitter.mapple06/06/2016

First visit to trig point today, with Pete. Another one of those hills where I've been on ROWs within 5 m. of the top but never thought to visit it until my brother (Pete) started Hump-baggingpwheeler23/01/2016
With Katy. Field of Maise! Very short walk 0.4mile inc trig on other side of road.George Thompson18/09/2015
County top outing, find the telecommunications transmitter on the Erbington to Ilmington lane and park on the verge.The trig point behind the transmitter is 259 meters but in the field on the other side of the road or down the path by the side of it there is an extra 2 meters time to get the GPS out!WAYNE ROWLETT16/08/2015
While we were in the area we managed to bag this one nice views but after climbing Worcester beacon it was disappointing.Tony and Karen22/07/2015

A pile of Sh*t - well actually well rotted manure - covering the entire summit area. Apart from that the adjacent hills and valleys are really very prettyM3WDD22/02/2015

20 minute walk up from Hidcote Manor car park. Fairly uninspiring top in field next to radio mast, but great views across the Vale of Evesham on the way back down to car park.The Gardener20/10/2014

Parked in Ilmington. The farmer has tipped silage onto the highest point, so it could be messy underfoot in wet weather.Sprog03/08/2014
