Even found a souvenir a lump of old trig pillar amongst the heather though it was heavy and very hard work to carry back to my vanvegibagger05/01/2019
First of a cycle around the Sheffield - Rotherham Tumps and trigs on a disappointingly cold, damp and grey day. Warmed by the ascent of Jenkin Road take cobbled track SW to summit. Heath / woodland with iron age hill fort at summit. High point un-marked heathery rise 10m NNE of as AJ says a strangely bushy Oak. Bank 80m NNE very similar height.RichardM22/11/2018

Steep steps from Fort Hill Road and then a stroll along good track to indeterminate top.Campbell Singer13/11/2017
Parked on the summit of Jenkin Road to the north east. A good track leads from the cul-de-sac next to the monument all the way to the top. The summit appears to be about 20m off the path in a patch of rough heather.moorsman19/09/2017

After several hours in Meadowhell,parked in Sandstone Avenue.Possibly went wrong,as I went downhill before ascending from south-west side.Limited views because of trees.catman12/06/2016
2nd of 6 hills with Lexi Rue my partner's Labradoodle on a 20+ mile walk from Sheffield to Conisbrough station. After Parkwood Springs we used the A6135 and then the A6102 to reach Grimesthorpe. We took a footpath into Wincobank wood eventually climbing upto the Fort ramparts and onto the central path through them. We carried on in a N Easterly direction taking first path down to meet suburban road leading to High Wincobank. All this was done in persistent drizzle!.Dazingdale12/04/2016
Meadowhell has one redeeming feature in that this pleasant little hill is only 30 mins walk away.Jake99407/11/2015
Made famous when the 2014 Tour de France came to Yorkshire and sent the riders up the killer climb of Jenkin Road -which crosses the eastern shoulder of the hill. The summit commands a birds eye view over Sheffield and the Lower Don Valley with its steelworks and Meadowhall shopping centre. It is the site of an iron age hill fort and in WW1 was the site of an antiaircraft gun protecting the steelworks from potential Zeplin attacks. Sadly on the one occasion a Zeplin did attack and drop 36 bombs - no shots were fired as all of the officers (who could give the order to fire) were at a ball! In WWII it was also the site of anti aircraft gun and searchlight.Chris Pearson02/08/2015
Very pleasant with good viewMark Sims24/07/2015

A revisit - but as I have no idea when first time, let's count this one. With the swell-dug.Martin R22/11/2014
A historic place to visit with Martin Richardson. Park on Jenkin Road or the narrow Fort Hill Road or easy at the end of Sandstone Avenue.Dugswell222/11/2014
Started from NE by a very unusual set of monuments/artworks, followed cobbled track. High point banking near where hillfort was, or further along, another banking near the strangest oak tree ever.Aye Jimmy26/10/2014
