Another post work walk, parked on road to west and followed footpath to summit, reached top as Root hit his century vs Pakistan, shame they lost though.penbet03/06/2019
From the footpath which runs behind Bassaleg school, up through Court Wood, southwest through two fields and onto the wooded hill fort, then across the field to the high point. Lots of barbed wire fences to climb: not an easy hill to access.Mariana Trench28/05/2019
From road to W, easy walk across fields to hill fort, then over fence to natural summit in field to E.Tony J03/06/2018
