Walked up from Maiden Bradley via road then ROWfosal2914/02/2020
Snowy, slightly domed field with indistinct HP but good views just N of RoW. On XC skis, from Horningsham on sunny day and continuing E along ridge to Cold Kitchen Hill.Denise 03/02/2019
Ski ascent along the W ridge, levelish summit field sheltered by woodland. 20cm of snow here today. Great skiing across to Cold Kitchen Hill.RichardM03/02/2019
From N. Parking OKjimbloomer16/02/2018
From NW parking on verge near Baycliffe Farm. Path by gallops then east up the hill. Went to Tumulus, spot height and to 285 contour ring in the woods, which was lower than Tumulus.PeterD06/08/2017
Walked up from the SW. I thought this a lovely hill with expansive views - a good one to complete my home catchment. Not much of a summit - perhaps on a thistley lump (tumulus?) close to various patches of scrub. Don't think it's in the wood.Herbert Anchovy03/08/2017
From ROW to the SW. First north then curling east. Bold spot height of 284m on grassy field to NE but 285m contour ring in woodlandvegibagger25/07/2017
A bit doubtful about 285m ring contourAdrian13/07/2017
Whilst on a mountain bike ride.Swindon Bagger28/09/2016
after a long march from Southleigh wood up the north spur and down the west. 6th tump of 10 on a 26 mile 8 hr circuit from Warminster. The chalky grasslands,scrub, and woodlands are a SSSI being biologically rich. The nice sounding frog orchid can be found here and autumn lady’s-tresses as well as less kindly named bastard-toadflax. Ant hills are also noted here, so watch where you sit. Down to the E the 6 villages along the Wylye valley are known as The Deverills.Chris Pearson30/07/2016
Warminster out & back. The ridge from Brims Down was a very pleasant approach.Smudge31/01/2015
Mere to Warminster. Bridleway from SW was an excruciating mud slog untill near the top. The 285m contour ring HP is not readily discernable & requires a fence hop.Smudge27/12/2014
Did this hill in 2009 and then again, without realizing it was a revisit, on 24 Mar 2014 when we had a pleasant walk up from Kingston Deverill to this hill top pasture with views N to Longleat House. Circular walk coming over Cold Kitchen on return.jonglew21/06/2009
pleasant wdld, summit pasture adjacent, dull, OK view. BW from north RHW22/09/2002
First time I did Long Knoll and Whitesheet Hill I started at Maiden Bradley; the last section of my walk was from Kingston Deverill and the walk over the long ridge of Brimsdown Hill was a very pleasant way to finish. Sunny day in a nice, under-rated area.pwheeler13/04/1997
