Lovely heathland - circular walk form car park to south off B3075Mark Sims28/03/2019
Part of the 14 square mile Wareham Forest mix of open sandy heathland, forest and bog, including the adjacent Moden Bog National Nature Reserve - a good spot for dragonflies in the summer. Wished I was wearing a helmet tlike the passing mountain bikers to protect against the unusual danger from falling giant pine cones in the strong winds , which were causing problems across the UK today. ( the wind, not pine cones). The trig is adopted by The Martin family with a nice note about the late Peter Martin who loved climbing up here to ‘Uncle Trig’ and believed that all hills however small are there to be climbed. I also visited the higher ring contour to examine a few hundred more trees .Chris Pearson10/03/2019
Up from west on track and path to the olive green painted trig then SE to the 4 metres higher TuMP summitvegibagger13/04/2017
Circular walk from Wareham having sailed from Lymington the previous day. Access not a problem, deciding on the location on summit is. My best estimate for the two possibilities which are both low earthy mounds in young pine forest are:- ridge to W of N/S track SY 92212,91932 Alt. 45m (Acc. 5m) and E end of ridge with trig point SY 92453,92153 Alt.39m (Acc 7m). GPS sulking today refusing to provide its usual 3m accuracy. Lovely area of heathland and forest.RichardM05/03/2016
From WNW. A few m west of main track. Also visited smaller contour to NE although fairly level and likely to be lower. My penultimate Dorset tumpRHW27/02/2016
Woodland summit area, difficult to determine where the top is, had a waklk about but couldn't come to any definitive conclusion. Also couldn't get more than 45m elevation out of my GPS that normally reads high.jonglew01/11/2015

Wareham circular. Investigated both 45m contour rings without any HP location being formed.Smudge11/01/2015
From large car park 1/2 mile or so south (?? Clump). Very tree covered apart from just round the trig, heaven knows where the top is!!citygent12/06/2014
