Similar route to RHW, steep climb from road to reservoir through trees.PeterD05/05/2016
Simple steep climb from s. Layby sw of hill. Road walk the downside. 2m water tank with rudimentary ladder. Natural hp could be there or 20m to s. The latter agrees with the original 100m gr although resr is just inside next square northRHW23/04/2016
Early visit as previous two attempts were foiled by farmer/farm worker who asked me to return to footpath.Dusty16/03/2016
From Rickford on a RoW initially then over sheep pastures and a b/w stock fence to Ridgeon Wood. Stone built covered reservior at hill top.jonglew28/01/2015
Parked near the pub in Rickford. At first followed footpaths and then turned up the south side of the hill across sheep grazed pasture towards the wood. Climbed over one fence and there's then a gate into the wood. A track heads past a pheasant pen to the summit which is close to a small stone reservoir. A man was cutting down laurel with a chainsaw close to the top but I was able to skirt round him using laurel as cover and stealthily made the summit without him noticing even though we were only 10 m apart. The reservoir is shown on the 1:25 and near enough marks the correct location of the summit.Herbert Anchovy26/01/2015
