Solo. Parked in a lay-by at the viewing point above Whitewell (GR SD 6687 4669). Out via Higher Park Gate, back via Crimpton. Visited both tops, neither particularly inspiring. Large boulder about 100 mtrs below western summit.ADT07/10/2018
From layby near trig to west at spot height 294. Track to farm and on to access land. S side fence at SD 6848 4684 easier going - drier and no reeds. Think alt. top at SD 69516 46683 highercarole engel01/09/2018

Parked near gateway to Spire Farm. Walked pas farm then followed the wall on the left to the summitLongwojo31/05/2018
Two grassy tummock summits of similar height, not sure which is higher, too far to use Abney. Boggy approach from Crimpton Farm entrance.Denise 06/01/2018
From the W over rough grass moorland. Both 'summits' visited. Cold and bright.RichardM06/01/2018
Marl hill mire. Woman with cockney accent at Spire Farm very friendly. Asked me in for a cup of tea. The bog less friendly.Martin R03/04/2017
Same as ngthackbardolph24/02/2017
Via the Spire Farm vehicle track. Both summits.jimbloomer24/09/2016
Up boggy footpath & cow hoof pockmarked field to Spire track then to west of wood.ngthack27/04/2016
From e, spire farm track. Soggy snow, wellies good choice.RHW05/03/2016
Parking for a single car opposite the entrance to Crimpton Farm. Do not go through the gap in the fence alongside the parking place otherwise you will finish up ploughing across virgin, boggy moor. Find the footpath which will lead you to a vehicular track which gives easier walking to the summit.moorsman23/10/2015
Track due E from Crimpton Farm end to second style, interesting posted line through tussocks, almost a stream after heavy rain yesterday.GordonAdshead25/05/2015
Place to park opposite track to Crimpton Farm. Close by is stile and track that goes almost all the way to the top, though indistinct early on because of the length of the grass/sedge/thistles. Once over second stile track is more obvious. Very drab hill, the only point of interest being an odd gritstone outcrop about 150m from summit.Aye Jimmy19/08/2014
Parked near entrance to farm just off the road for this easy trig bag called Spire Farm before bagging both tops of the nearby TuMP called Marl Hill Moor as second one is in a different Geograph square..Dugswell204/09/2013
Parked on small lay-by on B6478 SD 71049 48354. 311m spot height 730m east is lower (Abney).David Gradwell20/11/2010
