Drove SW down Dundry Road East from Whitchurch. Lots of fly tipping. Found just enough space to park off road at ST 59575 66653. Returned down lane on foot and climbed over first gate on left following field boundary to field corner and high point. One of few hills I have climbed where I end up lower at the summit than where I started.SteveSmith17/01/2020
Parked in a small layby at 59573 66657 and walked back down the hill a little, over a gate, along field margin and over a gate to Bristol HP then back to road and fp to Maes Knoll. Great views of Bristol.clivevilla10/10/2018
Parked in Tanorth Road, found the footpath and got thoroughly soaked tracking down the high point across two diagonally ascending fields from the footpath.Nick Down124/08/2018
From footpath on Tanorth Road.PGCE27/05/2018
Parked in Hennessy Cose and walked round corner into Tanorth Rd. The fp sign has gone although the pole remains. Up into fields and over a couple of easy gates to the hp. Fine views over Bristol. Otherwise, undistinguished but at least no litter this way.Campbell Singer12/12/2017
Parked up by Dundry Primary School and enjoyed views over Bristol as I made my way to the top of Dundry Hill. Didn't hang around as the rubbish and smell was horrible. Made my way back to the car via Maes Knoll.Gerry the Ranger08/09/2017
Initially approached on the lane from the Dundry Marilyn - this is a mistake as there's absolutely nowhere to park. You have to park in the housing to the north of the slope and walk up.Richard06/05/2017
Walked from house, this is generally a weekly walk, route taken up through manor woodskineta23/04/2017
Parked in housing estate, up fly tip alley then followed hedge along top of field. No the best on a wet afternoon.rhalstead03/09/2016
Parked close to T junction north of Norton Malreward at 602654. Over Maes Knoll to trig and high point. Went through gate on north side of lane that says 'no access' to the public and dropped to the high point. We were seen by farmer on his combine but legged it back to gate. With CJM.bolton17/08/2016
From S over Maes Koll. With DT on way to watch BW at BR.CJM17/08/2016
Parked in Norton Malreward, enjoyed the walk over Maes Knoll, taking in the great view from the trig point which was (almost) en route. A man in the next field was firing a gun so I didn't hang around long at the county top.edmundjohnson31/07/2016
Walked across from Meas Knoll, rubbish gone from road, along field boundary and then down by fence. Always seems weird going downhill to a 'top'PeterD26/04/2016
Solo. Rubbish.simon and co06/12/2015
From SE. Carefully waypointed the 2 highest points on OpenStreetMap boundary: 1) ST 59382 66879 by fence 24m NNE of hedge corner; 2) ST 59335 66871 pasture 38m WNW of hedge corner, close to an OS trig (block) which I made a token attempt to find - apparently buried.RHW12/04/2015
1/3 Agree with all previous peakbaggers. Appalling fly tipping on lane but nice views of BristolFergalh02/12/2014
Mindful of the crops and fearful of the dogs warning admired from a safe distance. Field gates heavily secured presumably against even more fly-tipping.Newton Maximus16/10/2014
walk up from Tanorth Road. One or two barbed wire fences.arranc30/03/2014
Parked roadside in the interestingly named hamlet of Norton Malreward. Did a cirular walk via Norton Hawkfield and North Wick, then N up onto Dundry Hill. Progressed NE to convenient field boundary (at ST 5963 6672) which we followed to the UA top. Returning over Maes Knoll to bag the trig.jonglew08/12/2013
Lots of good tips from previous baggers - thank you. No parking on narrow country road to east as only passing places (never seen so much fly-tipping before, this road looks and smells disgusting!) Parked in housing estate to north, Tonorth Road and followed FP up from there. PS When is a hill not a hill? Answer - when it is a Unitary Top!Hillsidenick31/03/2013
Visited all the Bristol/Bath area highpoints in one daymagirob05/03/2013
Begin at east Dundry lane going uphill until sign post on right (Right of way). Across first field & then ascent to peak. Good beginning hill walk.spidey19/01/2013
Camped at Norton Hawkfield, walked over Maes Knoll to East Dundry Road and crawled under a fence and followed field edge.Overthehilljill30/09/2012
Access more difficult now as barbed wire fences reinstated. Nearby footpath is also apparently disputed by local farmer.Kevgbl03/09/2012
Easily accessible even if crops are growing.destaylor10/02/2011
First time i,ve had to walk downhill to a top.not really a top but a fence line halfway a cross a field. parked in the lane higher up full of flytip rubbish.DARRENG16/09/2010
Very bad top.The Team01/08/2009
Followed Ted Richards' example which has the advantage of easy parking, great views of something other than Bristol and the feeling you've climbed a hill rather than just walked to the edge of a field.Herbert Anchovy16/07/2009
quick out and back from the road,parking very iffy.asbown10/06/2009
Quick dash after bagging nearby Marilyn.Dugswell204/06/2008
Parked to the south and came up over Maes Knoll first, making a mess of the decent and loosing the path. Bagged county top by straight dash in and out from minor road.Father Ted21/03/2008
Went along the boundary fence as crop in the field. Better views than the bigger Dundry.signyred30/04/2007
Out and backRhayader_wander10/04/2006
Parked at ST 601 672 & walked up from below, keeping a low profile... top next to hedge. Warning - some field boundaries don't tie up with OS maps. Why are all the tops in the former Avon part way up hills rather than at the top? Most annoying!wheresthepath26/11/2005
