Pilot Hill and Walbury Hill, gaining access by bike. Route up to Pilot Hill from SU 40823 59713 was fine on bike but down to road at SU 38333 61430 was very muddy and had to push the bike.

5/8M quick grab from the cp.robertphillips06/11/2017
After driving all the way down to Win Green and Long Knoll, I was not going to miss this one out whilst in the area, so I bagged it in the dark. Great fun hunting for the trig in the lush meadow grass, but not as hard as finding the way around the minor roads in the dark. Good view of a firework display in Newbury on the way back.Gill14/10/2017
Trig point is on private land with no right of way but there is a stile by a gate from the waymarked path which suggests they don't mind you visiting.ijpowell07/09/2017
Started at Combe Gibbet, dropped down into Combe then around the bottom of Walbury Hill before re-joining the Wayfarers and jumping over the obscured stile and into the field to find the (also obscured) trig point. It's almost like they don't want you to find it!Jeremy C02/09/2017
Headed West out of Combe Gillet car park. Thankfully realised our mistake 0.5 miles in and turned back. There was nobody in the field when we were there - a very quiet county top, surprisingly on a summer weekend and a really lovely day. We continued along Wayfarers Walk to Pilot Hill.WendyWozEre06/08/2017
