Walk from Grantham station to Bottesford. Approached summit from E on RoW. L through hedge at steps. Followed boundary to mound in SW corner of field. Highest point seems to be on S side of hedge.

Parked near Casthorpe Lodge and followed track south. Continued south east towards steps but instead of going up them followed the hedge line south to the corner of the field where there was an open gate. A left turn and a short walk led to the top.Wheelsy26/07/2016
From north. Last Lincs hill.ngthack15/06/2016
From the canal bridge to the west of hill. Followed footpaths through fields and then cut diagonally upwards south east towards woods. Had the impression that HP was about 200 m to the north west of stated summit but difficult to tell as sun was still not up.Campbell Singer29/12/2015
Took fp from N (diverted round Casthorpe Lodge) and diagonally up field to steps. Several gaps in hedge as AJGordonAdshead16/07/2015
By hedge with views to Grantham. Also visited Casthorpe Covert to the north which is an alternative summit in crop field.Adrian25/05/2015
From the ENE starting just S of Barrowby. Track and public f/p lead W then SW across fields gently uphill to crest of hill. Steepens, use steps down or nip through hedge and SE to parallel hedgeline. Was wandering about here looking for high points when a nice lady from North Lodge exercising her horses told me I was on private land. Maybe she didn't like having her photo taken?Aye Jimmy12/05/2015
