From end of Back Lane with Miranda in early evening. Serious moon grass, luckily dry. Very small cairn at or very near summit. On to boundary.Wycombe Wanderer16/05/2020
For Withins Height and boundary, parked to the NE in Back Lane SE002365. Enough room for a few cars.David Evans13/07/2019
From the layby to N of the 389m spot height, Lad Law, then mostly following the boundary stones across to Withins Height (both tops because I forgot which was the right one!) From there back down past the reservoirs and up the road, stopping off for Hameldon on the way to the car. First real walk of 2019 so it felt a lot longer than expected... Except for a few small patches the moors seemed surprisingly dry, I wouldn't like to try this route after heavy rain though!the_adam13/04/2019
From Ponden Resr, good roadside parking SD 9957 3711. PW mostly, then across some very unfriendly ground.jonglew10/01/2019

Walked up from Stanbury then Followed Pennine Way [more or less] to Little Wolf Stones. Lovely day and good views.IanHHill18/04/2017
1st of 4 hills today and my Calerdale completion on a tough route from Haworth in persistent windy and rainy conditions. Followed Bronte way out of Haworth, briefly detouring to explore Penistone hill trig, back onto Bronte way to waterfalls then continued on ridge in Sw direction dropping down to bridge at SD988356, following fp to Top Withens, continuing on Bronte way to SD980347 where i veered off direct for the summit. I passed a few stones that may have been dropped by previous summiteers! Continued to Withins Heights boundary, followed by a wild traverse to Watersheddles reservoir.Dazingdale19/03/2017

Along PW from SW. Small parking area at SD948323 not on map. Found small cairn on Withins Height, but not boundary stone at WH Boundary despite criss crossing the grid square for 1/2hr. Must have nearly tripped over it.mart079711/06/2016

With Jo, circular walk from Moor Side Lane; track to Harbour Lodge, paths onto Withins Height (Round Hill) and Withins Height (Round Hill) [boundary], returning via Withins Height trig, Bronte Bridge and Penistone Hill trig.

Done on the Bronte Walk from Haworth. Parked in car park at SE 99826 35840 and, after visiting the parish church, took the trail across Penistone Country Park and track up to the Bronte Falls and up to Top Withins and onto the flat summit of Withins Height. Marked what seemed to be the highest point with three rocks. Returned using Pennine Way and down to Stanbury and via reservoir back to Haworth.Man of Kernow120/06/2014

Solo linear walk on an overcast day from Oxenhope over by Top Withins and down via the reservoirs, Hardcastle Crags, Gibson Mill to Hebden Bridge then by the canal to Mytholmroyd. Reasonably straightforward navigation, slightly damp under foot.JOHNS17/02/2012
A sign of changing times with big blue signs with Chinese writing pointing the way to Top Withins. The sign on the ruin makes me smirk - saying rather tetchily something like 'in response to numerous enquiries YES this is where Wuthering Heights is believed to be'. Kate Bush singing Wuthering with her amazing voice came to mind. Saw a black and blind (?)rabbit.( which Kate never sang about)Chris Pearson03/09/2011
Did a lambing a Harbour Lodge Farm in April 1990. Thankfully the farmer collected me in his landrover at the start of the long farm track.Dugswell201/10/2009
