Plentiful parking at the start of the footpath on Huddersfield Road in Newhey. The start looks to enter a private garden but there is a waymark on the entrance gate. Pass through the garden and bear left along the fenceline. At the next fence junction there is a stile onto the open land. This can be followed all the way to the summit via gaps in the fenceline. 25 minute return trip.moorsman07/03/2019

From Memorial Park, past Bradley Farm and over stiles to summitBramley05/09/2018
From end terrace house but despite the sign the fp is hard to find as it goes through a pleasant but probably unofficial garden. At first the fp is quite overgrown but becomes clearer through the wood. Great views yet again.Campbell Singer02/09/2018

Newhey Quarry below the summit is full of Calamites (fossilised swamp plants), bivalves, brachiopods, and if your very lucky insects or fish remains.Also a good site for superb trace fossils, including ripple marks, worm burrows, and 'fish marks'. You are certain to come away with something. (and a summit) .Chris Pearson05/08/2015

A640 Huddersfield Rd out of Newhey, parked after first bend near bus turning circle, start of bridleway. Followed this up past Tain Barn and across to edge of quarry. Summit is upper grassy rim of quarry.Aye Jimmy11/05/2014
from Memorial park, Newhey, with Moss Gate & Dick Hill. cool, mainly cloudy.joseph mitchell26/02/2014
The south slopes of this hill are the view from my front window - about 100 metres away. I know I have been up it twice but it does not lend itself to a walk like the rest of the valley. The quarry is a bit of an eye-sore . . . Although improving as nature reclaims it.Aimless Rambler02/11/2013
A pleasant walk on public footpaths throughout from the Memorial Park car park on the outskirts of Newhey at SD 93258 11900. This hill is nothing like as ghastly as it may look on the map as time and the work of nature as done a good job on the huge quarry. If this route is taken you would be totally unaware of the quarry till the summit is reached anyway.David Gradwell30/06/2013
Cycle-bagging ride from Tandle Hill to Walsden. Chained my bike up by a bus stop opposite Wood Side then up and down the path direct to the top. Nicer than expected.Jake99414/06/2012
