Quarry now extended east and summit gone. Now field boundary approx. NZ 35333 35366carole engel31/12/2018
From NE along ROW to south side. High point is now field edge.PeterD18/06/2018
Agree that the summit has moved to the east due to quarrying of the old top.Campbell Singer22/05/2018
Parked at end of gated lane E of Low. Walked along ROW track to site of (now removed) transmitter mast and followed edge of field to quarry boundary fence. HP is now on the line of this new fence.John Lee19/10/2017
Grid reference indicates a point about 50m from cliff edge in open air. Must of quarried the old top away.andrew brown14/02/2017
Ran here from Catley Hill. Skirted round 3 sides of a fenced field warning of quarry workings. Came across a lane which took me nicely uphill to the summit.madaddo29/01/2017
from west quarry road entrance tarmacced and then left on dirt track round northern perimeter till no longer driveable then on foot. well mud-caked boots afterwardsvegibagger15/04/2016
Parked at Low Raisby farm track entrance. Up lane to farm, then track & fp round quarry perimeter fence to where low fence gets twice as high & no bw. Cross fence easily into narrow belt of young trees to narrow strip of field. Cross this to bank of scraped up topsoil. Teeter precariously along top of bank for 200 m to highest point. GR of 353353 appears to be well within workings of quarry, hence inaccessible & possibly quarried away. Should have noted new high point, but didn't have pen & paper with me. Couldn't keep 8 figures in my head until back at van either.ngthack25/02/2016
Parked about a km to W at start of Raisby Way, an old mineral line. Followed track past nature reserve. At end of wood turned R and followed field edges to track and barbed wire fence around cabbage field, and 'Danger keep out, quarry' signs. Summit at top of cabbage field, at fence corner overlooking (working) quarry. (Simpler approach may be available via large muddy track from N).Aye Jimmy11/11/2014
All change on this. Top now at corner edge of field overlooking quarry. Old top now several metres lower. New GR and height needed. Confess I found it possible to drive most of way to top. Short trip through field to top.nordicstar06/11/2014
Not possible to reach the summit without trespassing on quarry. Pleasant view from the path to the East.philos31/08/2014
