|This could well be the first time Iíve parked higher than the summit Iíve come to climb? Walked downhill initially towards this lower summit (!) from the small car park to the east a km away with low dipping sun in eyes all the way to this shapely juttting promentary. It has not always been a tranquil spot as sleepy Cattistock below had a military camp of Nissan huts in WWII and housed troops prior to DDay, and later German and Italian prisoners of war ( some of the 400,000 of ĎChurchillís guestsí) who were put to work on the farms. The whole of the Frome Valley was also used to billet, in spare rooms, exhausted troops rescued from the Dunkirk beaches. In 1983 the tranquility was shattered when a sea harrier jet crashed, just missing the village houses.The pilot ejected.||Chris Pearson||10/03/2019|
|Circular walk from Catistock. OS 1:25000 shows access land and gate from FP to NE has a sign asking you to close the gate.||Swindon Bagger||30/08/2018|
|From Cattistock on RoW initially then over 2 pastures to HP.||jonglew||28/10/2015|
|Easy from NE gate.||Adrian||06/09/2015|
|Parked on minor road to N - not ideal. Footpath into field but then ascended up a steep, wooded bank, climbed over fences and reached the summit castle. A fairly obvious high point for a change.||Herbert Anchovy||29/04/2015|
