I walked over to the summit after looking at the churchAlancache05/04/2018
With Jo, from church car park. Strolled round all likely places but unable to determine exact top, boulder at entrance and gate in green lane seemed to be highest spots. Weather; sunny, warm, good visibility.amblerbob26/03/2018
Parked in Church carpark.David Evans10/03/2018

Visited with my wife, Sharon. Drove up after breakfast at the garden centre. Had a good look around the churchyard, all very pleasant. Some good views. Did both high points mentioned in other logs. They seem to be of similar height.Richard Gunn01/09/2017
Great view of hill and church when approaching the village from the south. Sense of calm when walking round the churchyard and inside the church, where the stained glass windows are impressive.JohnW21/05/2017
Fine looking church. High points appear to be at entrance to car park and green lane behind churchyard to WSW.Aye Jimmy07/05/2017
Drive up to church car park then a grand walk along the road and around the graveyard. Stunning view later from the east of church above the quarry.Dugswell201/03/2017

Bagged whilst on New Year family circular walk from Melbourne up to Breedon Hill to visit the church then back to Melbourne vis The Pooldazedemon02/01/2017
Great viewpoint. Nice sunset on a drab November day. Summit could be verge next to road just before car park or adjacent to wall at west side of churchyard. Incredibly well preserved old gravestones due to use of local hard slate.Jemma Singer12/11/2016
With Wendy. Very old Saxon stone carvings embedded in interior wall from previous church on this site. Craft centre with cafe in the village below, selling the most enormous home made pies I've ever seen, and the second biggest scones.ijpowell04/06/2016

5 mile walk. Wilson to edge of Melbourne, south and then south west into Breedon. Up the road to top of hill, down path on other side, back up to Wilson.callumorr21/02/2016
First of 14 tumps completing Leicestershire today. Church car park strewn with litter.ngthack14/02/2016
A stiff cycle up from the village. Round House in village worth a visit (Door not locked). Long horned sheep (Manx Loaghton?) in neighbouring field look best avoided. Church a glow in lowering sun light. Good view of the quarry from the beacon fire basket. Hill high point by gate in church yard wall WSW of church.RichardM09/02/2016
En route to calke abbeyMarkGD10/01/2016
A striking old church atop a half quarried prominent hill. Walked up steep path from the village to find a wedding crowd and photos underway in churchyard. Mingled with the crowds onto the highpoint trying to keep out of the photos.Chris Pearson08/08/2015
2nd hill of the day on a 15 mi approx walk from Hartshorne to Shepshed. Walked up around to church, exploring high points and then raised ground near the service road. Then descent via access land passed some good looking sheep and an amazing array of wildflowers.Dazingdale03/08/2015
On day trip for some business in SussexGordonAdshead22/12/2014
Summit behind church by wall of cemetery. Impressive hill from everywhere in the vincinity.Adrian14/12/2014
Parked in the village and took a walk up (missing the main footpath from the south...). Ended up joining on a footpath from next to the road and going back on myself around the edge of the hill past some perplexed looking sheep to the main footpath. Hard to tell high point so wandered around the church yard to make sure.muzza224/10/2014
Took in the hill as part of a geocaching walk around Breedon. Approached from the south via a public footpath, then had a look around the church and church yard. Some great views.Chingwakabungya20/09/2014
Looks impressive from the road, but less so from close up. Combined with a pleasant walk around Calke Abbey.Wheelsy04/07/2014
Been able to see this hill from Derby 10 miles way for years but never been up before . Circuit of church on top and good views of Trent valley.Mark Sims27/06/2014
It was a hot day, so cheated and drove up the hill to the car park by the church. Some decent views.Mad Eric22/06/2014
