From the water board structures to west. Avoiding worse ground by traversing, animal tracks to gain top. Further summit although shown as less on OS the middle top looks very much higher. Loggednordicstar24/03/2016

From the west. Road closure meant I had to cycle the last mile up the road to the gold plated waterworks before heading up the hill into an easterly gale. Dry with hazy sunshine.Topographer5723/08/2015
