Walked up the concrete track from the A Road, released a lamb that had its head stuck through a square of the wire fence. Good views of Teesside from the top as a chiffchaff called in the woods.mrs_ts710/06/2018
Parked to the west. Easy walk up transmitter track.Campbell Singer22/05/2018

Parked in gateway. Ran up the steep lane and out into the field.madaddo18/02/2017
Entrance doesn't seem too bad for parking as long as you don't go too far in - deep pothole just over a car's length into it! Fortunately road was clear so easy enough to reverse in. Blocks access so quick run up to the topthe_adam25/10/2016
Entrance to mast track not very good for parking, especially if you've got low ground clearance like my camper van. Room for one vehicle off the road 200m further east.ngthack25/02/2016
Fine view of the Tees-?oxymoronpeebs18/02/2016
Gorgeous wee hill up a track from the north , round the utility compound and into the stubly field.vegibagger02/09/2015
Parked high on verge of B1280 about 200m W of muddy track leading to mast. Highest point seems to be about 25m out into crop field (just showing green shoots at moment).Aye Jimmy11/11/2014
From road at track end. Not the easiest of parking. After that straightforward line up road to mast, over fence to top. Good views to Hartlepool coast.nordicstar05/03/2014

The access track off the main road appears to be little used and only serves the transmitter close to the hill's summit. As the ascent is only 5 or so minutes it is safe to pull in here and follow the track close to the top. There is a gap between the security fence and the tree boundary to squeeze through in order to reach the actual summit.moorsman18/08/2013
