Parked by Cemetery, walked to Farm and along track to gain pasture to the HP. Lots of inquisitive cattle other side of fences.PeterD01/07/2019
Parked by a gravel heap a little before Halcro; the farmer drove past and no problems. Along the track to the farm, past the sheds to an open gateway, then across an electric fence by insulators and a plank bridge across the ditch. Easy to the top, with nice views.Gill27/02/2019
