From Castleton via Coal Pit Lane and Pen-y-Lan Road, then across the turnip fields on the footpaths to the summitMariana Trench14/01/2018
There is room to park a car just off the road beside the mast enclosure. I walked along the RoW from there. I could just about see where the fort was and tramped about a bit to make sure we got the top. Wee Ross walked most of the way back to the car (although probably did double the distance since he zigzags).islamidget09/09/2017
