P end of track to N, trig pillar now dumped c100m to NE, summit very close to where it once stood. Met the local on the way down, very civil.agentmancuso16/01/2019

I couldn't muster the nerve to drive up the track so parked a little way south on the road. The trig was in a stubble field, probably not so easy if crops are plantedColin Crawford04/12/2017
Parked on minor road NO306058. Along track and over wall to trig point.Play2End06/01/2015
Drove all the way to top of track and parked in front of old garage (car visible inside). Saw no one. Over wall/fence across stubble field to trig. Would be V. Difficult to bag when crop was in field. I'd suggest visiting in late summer / autumn.Minto25/10/2014
P halfway up track to Hilton. To trig and to E which looks a similar height.chrisbien20/09/2014
