Online Info re the reason for its odd name are all spurious possibilities like an episode of Call my Bluff. Take your pick from 1. An outbreak of swine fever nearby. 2. There was a highwayman called Pigg who was hung and burried here. 3.A Mr Pigg was murdered and burried here.4. No one knows.Chris Pearson22/04/2019
Parked as others in gateway on road opposite. Scrubby field with path of sorts to trig. Top somewhere close by.Bramley11/04/2019
From Gallowhill Lane to NW couldn't park in lane by wood because of fly tipped asbestos so used layby few metres N of crossroads. Best take a brush cutter if you want to check which bramble patch is highest.rogreeves06/11/2018
Solo. No access problems.Dangerous Dave13/10/2018
Parked as others, across main road junctions then along minor road and easily up to HP and trig.PeterD13/04/2018
Hidden and unexpected clearing within wide brambly field boundary by lone pine and trig - with geocache. Accessed through weedy field.Easy roadside parking.Denise 09/12/2017
I liked this one, a pleasant area of grass and trig amongst oaks and an almost lone pine. Easy access from unfenced fallow field.RichardM09/12/2017
Parked as mart0797, crossed busy road and into wood with summer vegetation. Trig first then trampled through brambly patch to N.Aye Jimmy27/09/2017
Parked in large gate entrance on B1110 on north side of B1354.mart079728/08/2017
Parked in field entrance on opposite side of crossroads. Short walk through field to trig. Hard to tell exact location of top due to dense undergrowth.Ramblingpaul11/05/2017
Norfolk drive-by TumP bagging! Nice display of blue bells. Trig visited.BobHancock27/04/2017

Jungle bash to reach this. Mark Adrian's words well.ngthack22/09/2016
Trig and TUMP plus Norfolk completion by the Adz route.Dugswell203/09/2016
Tricky one. Parked in lane hard over to one side, stepping out into the nettles. The top appears to be a mound of bramble in the wooded area at the corner of the field. Probably best visited in the late autumn when everything has died back. With MikeOne man Bucket 23/07/2016
Best not wear shorts for this one.Adrian22/05/2016

Tucked away only a few mts from the very minor road. Muddy pull in very convenient. Could be overgrown with brambles in the summer.Campbell Singer16/03/2016
Parked as per GA. Small scrubby wooded area surrounded on 3 sides by arable farmland and fourth side by the lane. Trig is probably the HP, but seemed an area of high bramble approx 30m N of the pillar was higher. It gave me a 1m greater elevation reading, as well as some scratches.jonglew23/01/2016
