Parking in a cyclists track on Littlemoor Road due west of the summit. Crossed the road and followed the path to the second set of building. No one in so headed 1 minute across to the summit.moorsman04/03/2020
Parked in farm entrance. Looked for farmer to ask permission but nobody around so nipped up and back in minutes.Campbell Singer11/11/2018
Discreet bag, early ish. Timing perfect as farmer on his way out. Parked opposite SJ 99276 94536 entrance, accessed via gate. Daisy the dog was left in car for speed & due to land...however, our cover was slightly blown when the Daist set car alarm went off, as we were checking exact location. Prompt summit and dash back.

Parked on Littlemoor Road opposite turning into farm.Left dog in the car as its hard not to be very conspicuous/visible when dashing up this tump. Over farm gate then darted behind a holly bush to hide and check the GPS. At this point the dog set off the car alarm so we ran to the summit and back! With MartJohn Eley11/03/2018
Parked in wide entrance SJ 99276 94536. No Farmers around today, so uneventful 4 minute bag.David Evans23/04/2017
A tame Tameside Tump bagged after walking less than 150 metres off the road through an open gate into grass field. Farmer was upset spotting me in his field.Dugswell219/02/2017
Simple grassy field but glorious panorama of the Pennines and down on Glossop. Final Tameside TuMPvegibagger10/10/2016
2nd hill of 5 today. Climbed Idle hill then Took Tameside way to Broadbottom then Littlemoor lane. Climbed over a gate and Followed bearing to edge of another field containing the summit but had to wait as three guys from farm were out in adjacent field. When the coast Was clear I headed out and reached the flattish summit, returning under the baleful gaze of one of the farm workers. I Climbed over a barbed wire fence to gain the road and Followed this past Warhill into Mottram..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
Simple walk from gate to W. Obvious summit area, flat at top.RobertP27/09/2015
Took longer queuing to get across the traffic lights in Mottram (as ever ) than it did to hop over gate into field. The proposed Mottram bypass remains a long running saga.Chris Pearson06/08/2015
From W, gate, pasture.RHW01/11/2014
Very short walk from lane to W, over gate beside scrapyard into meadow. Long grass, vague rounded summit.Aye Jimmy22/08/2014
Up and down from Broadbottom. The church tower at Mottram is very prominent and austere.Jake99428/11/2007
