|Adequate parking on grass verge next to radio station.
Visited trig pillar first as guaranteed access.
Then crossed road to visit county hp.
Crop of sweetcorn in field so walked east along bridleway level with summit and spot height returned along bridle way and entered field following verge east level with spot height on other side of thick hedge. No access through crops.
Walked North along adjacent boundary getting as close to spot height as possible without damaging crop.||SteveSmith||22/07/2020|
|From the adjacent roadside. Parking in a manner that isn’t blocking anyone’s way is difficult but possible.||lenman||08/08/2019|
|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..
|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.||Wheelsy||02/06/2019|
|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.||RichardM||27/05/2019|
|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 views||penbet||17/05/2019|
|Walked this County Top with a 3 mile loop from Hidcote Boyce||D SID||01/04/2019|
|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.||Beeliner||21/03/2019|
|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.||nordicstar||03/01/2019|
|All quiet at Hidcote apart from the busy gardeners.||jenx||03/01/2019|
|Good views of malverns. Windy!||Ben Tindal||29/12/2018|
|Cycled up as part of a trip to Wales. Didn't actually climb over the fate to the spot height.||tsharp||27/05/2018|
|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.||milimana||11/05/2018|
|Nice views to the Malverns on the way down to W!||twg27||30/01/2018|
|Lower Quinton to Mickleton
Rain and mud!||raymondwilkes||27/01/2018|
|Snowy day parked at Mast bagged the summit then the trig||jmistry86||21/01/2018|
|Glorious cold sunny winter morning walk. 8 mile circular walk: Ilmington to Ebrington to Hidcote manner and back. Walking Britain, walk no. 3249||fellowsa||07/01/2018|
|Crop still in field but able to wander through it and around.||KC||05/11/2017|
|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!||UKHighpoints||24/09/2017|
|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 Ranger||17/08/2017|
|From Mickleton via Hidcote Hall. Nice views over the Vale of Evesham.||mart0797||10/08/2017|
|Parked by transmitter to bag hill and trig||Ramblingpaul||15/06/2017|
|The field had just been ploughed, but fortunately not too muddy. BW to South seemed higher. Also visited trig point .||PeterD||06/11/2016|
|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.||sooztops||17/10/2016|
