From Slough Lane on bridle way - up the side of third field to a handy gap in the hedge - across field to high point. No animals about today. My S Glos and Avon Catchment completions.Chris Peart30/12/2018

Log of visit to the Charmy Down alternative summit (which is in BaNES not SG). Parked at end of road at ST776694. Charmy Down was the site of a WW2 airbase. Perhaps it was partly the weather but it was a lovely walk up the byway with lots of historical and wildlife interest. Fairly flat top but summit seemed to be in a recently cut hay meadow dotted with old brick buildings, or perhaps in the adjacent meadow. The runways seem to have gone although you could still make out where they were and the control tower was visible in the distance. I assume the floristically diverse disused campsite was also part of the airbase.Herbert Anchovy21/06/2017
Having read other posts the stealth approach seemed fraught with issues so I popped into the farmyard and asked the horsey people if they minded. As I left the farmyard I mistook a 15cm deep layer of fermenting cow waste for solid ground, otherwise no problem easy track up.DC11main17/03/2017
What a palaver. Thwarted by thick hedges on attempt from NW in the dark and blustery rain - gate option lay too close to house for comfort. Eventually followed fpath around hill and found a not too bad gap in hedge then sideways back again to higher gate - route up resembled those airport queuing pens - a lot of sideways distance for little forward progress - and about as slow.Chris Pearson06/02/2017

From nw, not great route. The 2m spoil heap appears to be at natural hp. My final South Gloucestershire tump.RHW25/12/2015
From Leigh Lane parked opposite gate at W end of larger farm complex than implied on the map: Walked due N up field and crossed fence at summit. No cows.GordonAdshead08/09/2015

Busy noisy A46 nearby but calm blue sky otherwise.6.30pm already. Where had the day gone? A ready in waiting bonfire is on the biggest point just waiting for a match. A tick on the list without an RHW is pettily satisfying and after he bagged 38 tumps over the two days of the end of March trig bagging weekend, These will become rapidly rarer!!vegibagger07/04/2015
As Adrian. One fence and a couple of gates to climb over, potentially in view of the farmhouse. I think the lump on the top is probably a rubbish heap but hard to say. Enormous bull among the cows but he seemed dosile enough.Herbert Anchovy20/11/2014
Parked to NW at at atart of Slough Lane. Cow pasture with raised area at summit, could be barrow or farm tip, hard to say as thickly overgrown with high w.eedsAdrian04/10/2014
From minor road to S. Farm track NE of Tyning Farm to summit pasture. Broad flat hill top, not obvious where summit lies. Disinterested cows in field today.jonglew01/07/2014
