Roadside parking by church. Followed a track (not marked as a RoW) to SP 8783 9707 then N following track through woodland - a bit convoluted sometimes on a mown track, sometimes through woodland.jonglew20/07/2019
Almost identical to PeterD.David Evans11/03/2019
There is a free car park part way down the track to the ESE - Chapel Lane SP 8754 9727. Followed ROW, then S edge Prestley Hill wood - to bridge and gate at SP 8734 9710. NE across pasture to gateway (SP 8806 9716) into wood. Grassy track to top. May or may not be just inside wood?carole engel13/02/2019
Parked near the Church and took FP past Bede House and then FP alongside wood. Followed field boundary round to the north and then found way into wood and track to open pasture. Into higher wood and point. Back out same way descending straight back to FP.PeterD16/08/2018
With Jenx early morning after our wedding celebration at the Ild White Hart. Past the play park then out in Rutland circular to just before pylons. Up field edge round East of the Hill, through a gap in hedge then easily through woodland and field to thicket in top. Back down more or less directly to the fields by Bede House and breakfastnordicstar17/06/2018
From Lyddington, footpath to NW corner of woods then woodland track and open pasture. One short section through thick wood, not too bad at this time of year.rhalstead25/02/2018
As others, f/p from Lyddington then field edges. Cut up through the trees too early not realising that the summit lies in a separate wood behind the first one. Actual summit in upper wood a bit vague.Aye Jimmy13/05/2017
Footpath from Lyddington then walking up the green lanes between woodland as shots were fired nearby for my Rutland completion.Dugswell203/03/2017
Footpath from Lyddington then an easy stroll along field boundaries to the summit woodlandColin Crawford04/01/2017
From the playing field car park. The youngish wood wasn't shown on my ancient Landranger. Followed the path and then field edges until I found a thin bit of woodland to push through. Easier than expected. Then up through long grass. Highest point was probably just in a group of trees. The woodland is now ready for thinning to open up the canopy and allow some light into the woodland floor. If anyone bumps into the landowner can they let them know please?!Herbert Anchovy20/07/2016
From village on ROW and around field edge to 882974, then hack thru bramble hedge and thin trees to grassy open area on top. Take secateurs!arranc22/05/2016
First hill of the day before Slawston hill, With Sophia Howard from car park 100m up the church lane trackvegibagger15/03/2016
1st of three hills (completing Rutland co.) on a 16 mile walk from Uppingham to Market Harborough with my partner's Labradoodle, Lexi Rue. We took fp leading South from the village to the jct of paths where the Rutland round trail passes. We climbed over a gate and took a woodland ride heading E, Ne and then veered off on another older forest ride to the SE,we walked to the open top and summit appears to be on the border of the woodland/fence. Descent took us down to a stream that was fun to jump over and back onto the Rutland round which we followed to the Lyddington Bede House. We continued on the Rutland round to the Uppingham road about 1km North of Caldecott.Dazingdale03/03/2016
From village centre. Same route as others. Somebody chainsawing in the wood, but managed to evade detection. Rutland completion.ngthack10/02/2016
Take the ROW up past the end of the wood (there is parking at the bottom for the playing fields) but then follow to a second field. Follow right hand edge of field to top corner where you can cut through the trees across another field and to the top.simon and co13/10/2015
This one caught me off guard with regards to access, on checking my digital maps stored on my home computer I had assumed this hill was open access. I parked in the idyllic village of Lyddington and took the Rutland Round to the north, I then followed what appeared to be a permissive bridleway. The top itself is located in a private woodland.timday17/09/2015
As RHW. Parked at end of track leading up NE, but should have driven to playing field car park 100m up the track. I went up the track to N of the woodland: easy fence to work round borders inside the wood: On descent used the ride that led to FB on map.GordonAdshead19/03/2015
From Lyddington. Top just inside woodland.Adrian18/10/2014
Woodland, 111m, +/-5m. b/w from villlage, rides then hawthorn scrub (?avoidable), go round NW end of hedge before summit. My final Rutland P30.RHW08/05/2011
