Did not go to top because no RoW in surrounding fields. No need to climb the wall in the E corner of the roman fort, there is an access gate in the W corner, beside the museum, but it was padlocked - perhaps only unlocked on Fri, Sat and Sun when the museum is open. Multiple barriers in the E corner of the roman fort area seem to be the closest point of approach without trespassing.Isbjorn16/12/2019
Parking down Camp Street alongside a field gate immediately after the west running footpath. Once into the field it is an unhindered walk to the top with no gates or fences to negotiate.moorsman18/10/2019
Via walled path. Fine houses.Wycombe Wanderer21/04/2019
Walked up the track from the golf course after a round on our annual golf weekend trip. About a third of the way along the track to camp farm, then over a gate through a couple of wheat fields to the Trig then the actual top itself. No sign of the former Roman Road, which would have made it much easier. Back down to the pub to watch England cruise past Sweden in the quarter finals.summitter07/07/2018
Alavna Roman Fort from GR: NY 03965 37181ronaldo33303/05/2018
Solo. Footpath along edge of fort. Hopped over low wall in corner then over gate into sheep field. Visited trig too. Back same way.Dangerous Dave11/12/2017
with Darren, hop over wall to summit field and trig then back past grassy bank of fort -no rocky ruins to be seen. Wiki - The fort at Maryport formed part of the 'Western Sea Defences', a line of forts and watch-towers strung along the north-western coastline of Cumbria; a western extension of Hadrian's Wall. It had never occurred to me before that northern raiders might have got past Hadrian's Wall by simply sailing around the sides. Obvious really I guess as the Romans also thought.Chris Pearson01/11/2017
From the Golf Course (On coast to North of hill) followed bridleway along edge of fields. Visited trig and summit.briandavies02/08/2017

Parked by school to SE (holidays), f/p opposite to right-angled bend, over wall and gate to R. Fences up around digging earthworks, scrapings, trenches, tubs full of samples for sieving(?). Trig in hedge beyond.Aye Jimmy06/08/2015
