Roadside. Some fine horses in the field.Campbell Singer30/12/2017
After a meal at the Bicketon poacher, popped into the field off Shay Lane whilst my mum waited in the car. 10 horses started charging for us, they were young and a little curious but I was worried about my nephew. By this point we'd walked all around the highest looking points, no sign of a trig point. Great views - snow could be seen in the Peak District!tumpawumpa27/12/2017

Cycled from Cholmondeley Castle. Onwards to Oat Hill.Minto20/08/2017
Trig easily found. Just downhill from 3 concrete chamber lids and opposite side of road. It's a nice day and the views are reasonablestig_nest18/07/2017
6th hill of 7 today but 1st from the 2nd part of today, Starting at Tilston I caught the 41a bus at 16.24 and alighted at Hampton Heath; I walked up Bickley road then used minor lane to Hampton House & up Cholmondeley road. No sign of the trig despite some peering and poking in the Briar, although attractive Horned cattle provided a photo opportunity. Highest point seems to be near wooden post, West side of Road banking, close to Horse circuit railings. I explored the high point further South, it is of a similar height. Descent to Hampton Heath, Next hill: Oat Hill.Dazingdale25/02/2017
Easy parking a few yards SW of summit. Couldn't find trig.David Evans03/12/2016

Trig in hedge about 40m NE of highest point, which seems to be banking on W side of road, or in field behind hedge, accessed by stile at f/p sign.Aye Jimmy14/01/2016
Doing section of Sandstone Trail, decided to look for trig point at Hampton Post, but not there, so got the high point instead.CreakingHiker11/08/2015
Couldn't find trig either. Had a look round in field, but no sign. My 1980 OS 117 map says it is in the middle of the road!ngthack09/08/2015

Summit crossed whilst walking the newly created Sandstone Trail over 2 days - solo aged 19. Whitchurch to Runcorn where a footbridge was missing as a boat had crashed into it and it had not been replaced - big backtrack needed.Chris Pearson17/08/1982
