2nd of 4 tumps on a traverse from Hermitage to Wickham Heath,climbing Grimsbury Castle then roads to Curridge,taking footpath to the East,veering off when out of sight to curve round, climbing through trees then open downland to then arrive at immature broadleaf plantation. Highest point on bank next to large oak but wandered around quite a bit to make sure. Used track heading West veering off onto lane next to Private sign. Continuing for Bussock hill...Dazingdale21/03/2020

Parked on minor road to north. No sign of Private Signs but it was still dark. 10 minutes up and down.Campbell Singer29/03/2018
No tracks to the top. No sign of a layby to park. Plenty of 'Private Land' signs so didn't bother.ijpowell07/09/2017
Up from minor road to the north parking near the bridleway that heads north.Dugswell203/11/2016

This top is 2km west of Snelsmore Common proper which was the site of one of the protest camps during the 'Third Battle of Newbury'in 1996 - over the construction of the Newbury bypass which saw a huge anti road protest -both on the ground, up in the tree tops and in tunnels underground. (remember swampy?). Much of the hardcore aggregate came from the breaking up of the runway of the (also controversial with protest camps) former cruise missile site at nearby Greenham Common.Chris Pearson25/05/2016
Parked in passing place on road to north and short walk through the bluebells. No idea where the top might have been but wandered about in the young trees a bit and hopefully got pretty close.Herbert Anchovy16/05/2016
Left road opposite byway and up through woods and then bluebells to reach track at top. Point on Earth bank probably HP.PeterD30/04/2016
The OS map describes this as a common, however as reported by others there is a 'Private Keep Out' however I'm not inclined to believe this. It wouldn't be the first time someone had put up a private sign on common land. Also unlike other signs in the area which identify the estate the land belongs to this one is clearly home made.Swindon Bagger24/01/2016
As ngt: even found the tracks left 6 days ago.GordonAdshead04/09/2015
Up through wood more or less opposite bridle way going north on other side of road. Woodland not as impenetrable as it first appears.ngthack29/08/2015
Appraoched from N after visiting Bussock Hill. Pivate woodland with signs, but no boundary fencing. No obvious summit but man-made ridge running E-W might be highest point.jonglew24/06/2014
Limited verge parking to north on minor road near where the byway joins. Roughly opposite byway is a partly overgrown track that leads straight to the top. Flat tree covered summit with no views, really not worth the effort unless you happen to be passing, which we were after a walk around Frilsham. Although it has common in the name there are private signs in the wood, but no fences preventing access from the north.Hillsidenick18/08/2013
Bank S side of track. From N, path into *Private* woodland.RHW08/04/2012
up the wooded bank to summit, trees felled and young ones planted.Adrian03/03/2011
