|Parked in gateway. Ran up the steep lane and out into the field.||madaddo||18/02/2017|
|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 top||the_adam||25/10/2016|
|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.||ngthack||25/02/2016|
|Fine view of the Tees-?oxymoron||peebs||18/02/2016|
|Gorgeous wee hill up a track from the north , round the utility compound and into the stubly field.||vegibagger||02/09/2015|
|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 Jimmy||11/11/2014|
|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.||nordicstar||05/03/2014|
|Pleasant afternoon drive and ramble||mcbiydw2||24/12/2013|
|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.||moorsman||18/08/2013|
