Walked in on the path from the east. Cut up through the wood on a wide but muddy ride from an access sign. Went through the gate at the top and crossed a gate to reach the summit.JohnW22/03/2020
Left the car parked at Oxey Cross Roads after having bagged Round Hill. Followed road E then picked up RoW running up side of field to woods. A gate 200m from the SW corner of the woods allowed access to a grassy track through woods and out the other side, just to E of HP. One unlocked gate allowed access to the field with HP in. Back the same way. Fifth of seven today.Wheelsy09/08/2019
