Walked up the new bulldozed road to view the absent summit. This hill no-longer exists! No-one about on Sunday. Accessed the closed footpath to the south of the hill from behind the two houses. The maps are all out of date. No access to main roads. All a bit of a mess really! The highest point still standing seems to be by the tree line to the north.Dangerous Dave15/09/2019
From B4594 Phone box layby to south, lanes then access land. Top is no longer, newly fenced area and signs saying footpath closed until 21/2/18. Top now quarried, found the next likely looking high point but suspect this won't be around for long.rhalstead10/02/2018
Horrible. I used the RoW from the village up to the quarry, then had several forays up to the edge through head high bracken and brambles, always noting a higher point to the north. If only I'd dared to follow the edge I could have avoided a lot of scratches.Colin Crawford23/06/2015
Started on footpath to SW then track to quarry edge, crossing a gate.Chris Peart17/04/2014
Followed the footpath from the east round the hillside and then up through a forest of ferns to the sawn off summit. Thought it was a Hump at the time only to find later that it had been demoted.Campbell Singer28/08/2013
Parked at Church & Pub in Old Radnor, short walk sth to footpath straight to top. Whats left of it. Then down via head high bracken on east side to Gore Quarry and other hills.dicky10/08/2013

Old Radnomore hill - and apparently not a play area.Martin R25/08/2011
The hill has been decimated by the quarry.JohnStoneham23/07/2011
ROW from W - overgrown. Then straight up to fence. Ground on other side bulldozed.chrisbien20/07/2011
came up from the footpath starting from the west(can park here ok). Recorded my grid ref on the highest point for now until quarry consumes it.DARRENG25/05/2011
Parking 100m before the house CR mentions.destaylor30/03/2011
May now be a subHuMP but still a nice short ascent on a misty Sunday morning from SW. My GPS only gave highest point left at 314 meters.Dugswell227/03/2011
Parked by Yatt farm, only 5 minutes to the top of whats left of the hill. www.heavyhorses.co.uk/humpsheavyhorses07/03/2011
Quarrying has reduced the height of this hill and moved the place of its highest point.arranc23/01/2011
I parked in the quarry car park at Gore and walked up from there. The footpath off the track/road is a bit concealed just before a house. The top is the highest point of the spoil.clivevilla12/02/2009
Unsatisfactory - assumed the remaining high point, that the quarry hasn't yet consumed, till qualifies as a HUMP. Accessed via footpath at SO 256 588.summitsup04/01/2009
