From garden centre. Along FP, lots of dog walkers about by the river. Gate, field, another gate and then muddy track goes round and up. Then faint but easy path got me to top and HP, came back past pond and steep climb up to gap in fence near school fields mentioned by others.PeterD06/10/2018
As jonglew. Quite a nice hill somewhat surprisingly.clivevilla15/05/2018
From garden center.BobHancock12/04/2018
Parked next to the bridge on Dooley Rd as the Garden Centre was still closed. Pleasant dawn walk along an excellent path before dropping down on an old path to the pasture. Everything frozen so great underfoot. Climbed over the fence at the same place as others. Unusual urban Tump.Campbell Singer26/02/2018
From the garden centre CP (SJ 9371 8934). RoW initially then ducked through wooden fencing at SJ 9417 8950 and went off piste.jonglew23/01/2018
Path over fence from SJ 94165 89500carole engel01/01/2018
My final Stockport summit. Parked on Dooley Lane behind the pub then took footpath East at SJ937893. Followed this until fp loops to travel SE then jumped over fence to follow minor path down thru woods then crossed meadow to pick up vehicle path which stops close to the summit. Stupidly, then followed Mart down thru woodland to the NW and then had to cross numerous barbed wire and electric fences to reach the footbridge at SJ941897. An exciting and challenging Tump, beware of nettles, brambles and fences.John Eley23/07/2017
As for dazingdale. Used knees to gain height on treacherous slippery banks in wood and backside to come down.arranc23/03/2017
Parking: Carpark SJ 93700 89697. Abandoned original plan of crossing fields SW from footbridge as quite open, many people about and lots of horses in field. Worked my way round to SJ 94152 89505, over 3 bar fence and trended E downhill on faint path, then NE up hill to summit. Hardly any brambles, no water to negotiate and not exposed.David Evans13/02/2017
Parked in Marine Drive then into park, found the gap in the fence. Then steep down former path with some steps and ivy to aid descent. Over small stream near log then up a bit of a path to the summit.Dugswell220/01/2017
1st hill of three on a walk from Romiley station to New Mills ( Packhorse Inn). Took lane past Chadkirk Chapel then footbridge over the River Goyt. Turned left (Sw) before climbing a barbed wire fence into pasture and followed the paddock edge till i arrived at a gate. After climbing this i veered off to climb the steep hill up through woodland using trees to help stop me from slipping. Summit is between holly trees inside the woodland and thick brambles bordering it. Descent Sw through pleasant beech trees and then at a pond profiling round and up to reach fp at the top. Took fp's through estate to reach the Railway Inn near Rose hill station. Afterwards onwards to Marpleridge.Dazingdale10/12/2016
Glorious morning walk from footpath to west along southern riverside to where there is a Ford just before the footbridge then south across very dewy field. Glad I'd donned my Hunter wellies. Two easy babies to cross and the up through lovely beech and oak woods with lots of historic carvings on the trunks and on to the flat open summit with nettle thisle and docks. Stockport complete.vegibagger10/10/2016
An interesting hill to finish Stockport UA.Alan Caine19/12/2015
Accessed from the right of way to the west over a gate. Is possible to avoid all the overgrown stuff here, though does mean you have to cross somewhat overlooked private land.Alex C12/12/2015
Jungle warfare. Took me 3 attempts to find a way down the steep slope in the woods following vague paths, made I guess by local kids playing and exploring. Overgrown thistles and nettles in July blocked easy progress until I finally fought through to a track at the bottom where I left a cairn to find my way back into the vegetation! Easy going up track leading up to west of summit for a final thrash through / round long grass / nettles / thistles. No sight of anything man made from summit as tree encircled, An unusual adventure in a built up area.Chris Pearson31/07/2015
From Rose Hill Marple station. From the green near the school followed Aye Jimmy's directions. The path goes right after the gap in the fence, very slippery down under a mossy cliff. Cross the field and veer left up a bank where there's a faint path which avoids the worst of the brambles and holly.Jake99409/02/2015
From S, housing estate. Aye Jimmy description spot on. Quite an adventurous descent! Keeping L at bottom it's possible to avoid mossy balancy log for an easier stream crossingRHW01/11/2014
Started at Marple School to south (quiet on a Saturday). Lane leads to green, then path L for about 80m until new section of fence on R. Gap between fences leads into wood and path down steep slope with occasional steps to emerge from wood at ditch. Mossy log over this, then across heavily overgrown pasture to quad tracks, so there must be another approach available. Up through trees to pasture covered in thistles and nettles and encircled by wood. Flattish summit area.Aye Jimmy20/08/2014
Not many people go up this hill; patches of shoulder high nettles from 943892GordonAdshead07/06/2014
