Bit uncertain where the summit was for this...but I walked around it enough to have found it!Sockpan30/09/2019
4th hill of 8 on a 36km traverse from Stone to Bicester, climbing Burn Hill, Waddesdon Hill and Ashendon, taking the overgrown fp Sw over a dismantled railway and then NW into Dorton then South on the road before using copse next to road to access gate and climb to the top. I recorded 152m @ SP 68017 12778. I had my lunch nearby. Nice views. Continuing West then Sw and Nw for Brill village and North Hill...Dazingdale06/07/2019
From the road found a sort of track through chest high nettles to a fence and on up the field to the trees at the topChinnockC19/05/2019
Short walk from the NE as clivevilla. Saw a white pheasant near the top and then met a very angry gamekeeper on the way down.Herbert Anchovy21/11/2018
With NS. From Brill. RoW to Spa Farm, then farm track, then RoW SSW. Could find no way through double barbed wire fences and a thick thorny hedge so returned to the track, then along the road, then a very quick bag from near the high point of the road. Pheasants in abundance, and a shy grey squirrel. Then a circuitous walk back to Brill via Dorton, over the railway, Dorton Grange, WSW past Rid's Hill.Owen B14/10/2018
As Chris Pearson, seemed quiet around farm so nipped over gate and round into field. Summit mound in copse of four trees.Aye Jimmy25/08/2018

Nobody at farm buildings so over the gate and up. Should you get your car stuck on the soft verge and need pulling out, you could do worse than ask around for the help of the local 'Dorton Dons' - national tug of war champions in 1960/70s . Maybe they would come out of retirement in a crisis? The concrete barrel they hauled up a tree for practice apparently still sits in the river below the very tree in Dorton.Chris Pearson02/10/2016
