3rd hill of 5 today on a route from Hattersley station to Stalybridge via Idle Hill and Mottram Hill dropping down to Mottram and then using an overgrown public footpath heading Nw and out into fields and then Edge lane using fp that then rises up towards Harrop Edge. Climbed onto track leading to Garden nursery. The Garden centre was closed and the gate had a private sign on. I climbed the heathery bank over fence and kept out of sight until reaching the fenced compound and level area where it is the highest reachable area. Quite a strange summit with equipment and rubble lying around. I took a wild descent to reach an overgrown track to reach a lane that drops down to meet the main road (A6018). A good place to frequent the pub that was conveniently planted here!Dazingdale10/09/2016
from Green Lane, Hollingworth, walk around Mottram Hill-Harrop Edge (Mottram)-Hough Hill, Wild Bank Hill (Hollingworth Moor)joseph mitchell05/08/2016
The top buildings are a garden centre! Why be furtive when you are simply visiting a garden centre? Quite simply drive up to the top. Parking available just before the gates into the buildings. If you park on the final bend before the road levels out you can climb the gate and walk up to the mast.moorsman28/01/2016
Climbed at 8am before garden centre yard on summit opened. However worries unfounded as fp from N and skirting around to mast possible without being visible from summit buildings which sit in a small quarry .Chris Pearson06/08/2015
Golden spring garden supplies on summit along with masts and great view across to the big Hump plateau of Werneth Low Idle hill.vegibagger17/05/2015

From NNE: comms mast at summit in small fenced compound: ground has been levelled off; fenceline just as high; unclear where natural HP is/was. Seems to be a plant hire firm immediately next to summit.RHW26/04/2014
