Very muddy and very wet.johnkenyon25/12/2019
Along track from aerial and over fence into field. Followed tramlines. Then up the other track to the water tower. Spotted three blokes walking across the recently harvested field next to the water tower with lurchers. I assume they were hare coursing!Herbert Anchovy30/07/2019
Up past mast and into field, ( which if the summit is just by @20 metres in Warwickshire and not jointly in Leicestershire ) then back across road to water tower. Also visited out of curiosity the car park of nearby Twycross Zoo which despite having a large 130 m contour seems dismissed as a real high point contender - although looking on the web there is a 2 metre high man made earth ramp walkway by the gibbons. Also lets hope they donít build a large mound for the new arrival - a black African Rhino to survey its new kingdom from, or it could become quite a challenging summit to bag.Chris Pearson28/03/2019
Alternatives all appear to be same height as top near to W of mastcarole engel17/03/2019

No muddy tracks today, dry as a bone!Aye Jimmy07/05/2017
Parked at the farm entrance just down from the crest of the hill and then made a loop via the water Tower and mast up to the high point by a field edge on the left of the track. Also visited the trig point further down the track.Wheelsy11/03/2017
Muddy track from mast and into field then followed track over the motorway to bag No Mans Heath trig point.Dugswell202/03/2017
Muddy track from mast and into field. Also visited the point along the footpath to the south eastColin Crawford03/01/2017
3rd hill of four on a 25 mi circular walk from Atherstone station with Lexi Rue, my partner's Labradoodle . We visited Bentley common, The Round Berry and used footpath next to Bramcote hall to reach road leading to Austrey. We walked through the village and used Appleby hill road to reach bridleway. We walked past the receiver and used gap in field to reach summit which appears to around 20 metres in close to hedge boundary. Descent via Roe House lane to the A444 using fp on edge of Twycross zoo. We used the fp's to reach Twycross where we had a break at the destination Wellsborough hill.Dazingdale30/03/2016

Up muddy track from radio mast and around field boundary.Campbell Singer17/12/2015
I decided to use this summit as the basis of a trip to the area so ended up bagging along with lots of caches and a trig point.Father Ted20/06/2015
Fron layby by wireless station, up Salt Street. convenient gap in hedge just before very large puddle leads out to what I felt was the high point SW in field.GordonAdshead06/02/2015
By mast. 11.10.arranc25/01/2015
1) SW side of track NW of road; 2) track just S of water tower (highest point of large 130co, could be higher); 3) Twycross Zoo (large 130co but very flat, didn't go inside, agree with Adrian it's likely lower). My final Leics P30.RHW20/12/2014
Parked in No Man's Heath and walked along track. Some good views along the way, would be worth repeating on a clear Winter's day.Mad Eric22/06/2014
Grass field. Also did alternative summits nr water tower and Norton Hill road to the south. Zoo seems lower.Adrian26/05/2014
