Small off-road parking area at SJ 8832 4949. Some good tracks, otherwise easy undergrowth to contend with. Open area at summit, cracking views over the city.jonglew08/08/2019
Parked by 'Express Flowers' on A53 then followed path to the top. Quite impressive 360 views, much better than Cobridge Hill.iron_sun18/07/2019
Parked opposite flower shop in small layby next to house. Short walk to top with giant cross at the top.ironwolf18/07/2019
Up and down on paths from the NW, from Sandbach Road/Sneyd Hill junction.Moorponder10/01/2019
From Longport station, round the north of the hill, through cemetery. DO NOT try walking up the north slope. There is a good path from the park area. Good views around the area.bevandy11416/11/2018
Parked in Adkins Street. Short walk to summit following trail.Ramblingpaul15/10/2018

Up track from WSWvegibagger28/03/2018
Kidsgrove to Sneyd Green. Aborted direct attempt from NW due to barrier of brambles just below summit. Subsequently found steep muddy trail from WSW before descending on main track towards Holden Viaduct.Smudge27/01/2018
From Nevada Lane road junction at SJ878496. Last day's hospital visiting.summitsup02/05/2017
Walked across from Cobridge Hill to complete Stoke, and not leave any hills within 1/2 day excursion of home. Gets a more expensive hobby in money and time from now on.Mark Sims01/05/2017
From Sandbach Road. Straight up to top (steep) More gentle return, left then cut back rightBramley28/04/2017
From Central forest park. Using the streets inbetween. Walked around most of the base before finding a good path up. Much better view than its near neighbour.stig_nest14/03/2017
SW side direct on muddy path through trees becoming steeper with an eroded groove higher up. Cross on top. Sneyd's were a prominent local family - Keele Uni was built on their estate.Chris Pearson21/12/2016
Direct route of sorts from the road to the west and this hill smelt like a slag heap or former refuge site.Dugswell219/10/2016
Parked at 883 494 in Crossway Road. Walked in NW direction across busy A53, passed house with spiral pillars on right and picked up obvious path which leads to the top. One of the best views of the city where I was born. Solo.David Evans01/10/2016
From SE straightforward path to top.clivevilla22/07/2016
Path to HP from 882495. Cross.arranc27/05/2016
This was actually an enjoyable walk. Start from West, Sandbach Rd, or S, Adkins Street, where a track skirts SW side. Various paths lead up to summit. Fine views. Doesn't really feel like a slag heap or bing now, apart from the steepness.Minto29/04/2016
Should man made slag heaps count? Same route as Campbell,PeterD22/03/2016
From the W, steep muddy track up wood and big grooves in slag heap to iron cross on top.Aye Jimmy08/03/2016
Parked at top of Sandwich Rd and took path onto steep slag slope. Great view point with a large crucifix at summit. Used to be a proper slag heap when I lived locally.Campbell Singer23/02/2016
First slag heap of the day.ngthack31/03/2015
From the train station in Stoke, up to Hanley and across the top. May have climbed this back in the 90s but not sure.DanHolme07/02/2015
Short walk from road, slag heap, definately man made.rhalstead02/03/2014
From NW, parking on side road. Muddy path to grassy summit, where a chap was wrestling with a large kite on a slightly too windy afternoon. Decent viewpoint. Highpoint is a few metres W of an iron post.RHW22/02/2014
