A lovely local walk that I've done hundreds of times before - a nice one for a lunchtime or evening stroll with the dog. First time counting the hill for bagging purposes. Parked, as always, in the 'car park' before the footpath by the NT tea-room, then it's a short walk up to the mausoleum. The mausoleum used to be derelict and was restored following a feature on TV's Restoration series. I remember when it had a stack of burning tyres inside! Much nicer now and open for free on summer weekends. It never actually got to be used as a mausoleum, but the building is cool, reflecting lots of different styles from Lord Darnley's travels on the Grand Tour. Lovely evening today. Cows came out to guard the mausoleum.MysteriousSue16/05/2019

Pleasant walk up from south through a nature reserve.clivevilla27/04/2018
From the golf club car park with directions from the pro. Helpful man. Excellent parking. Impressive mausoleum is well worth a visit. Delightful managed woodland. Best hill of the day.Campbell Singer19/04/2018
From south as others. Medway complete. My 80th county for the time being.ngthack29/11/2017

From E along Lodge Lane, drove byway until bridle way took over, good parking at this point. Past the impressive mausoleum. HP somewhere just to S of FP, in woodland with dense undergrowth.jonglew01/07/2016

FP from the N down fields crossing the M20 then alongside the HS1 Eurostar railway. Impressive woosh as a couple of trains hurtled past in a blur, just a fence away. Tried to rush to beat encroaching darkness, not easy with a cold. Went along the summit ridge over the relocated top to visit the surprisingly large and grand mausoleum built by the Earls of Darnley when their traditional Westminster Abbey vault became full.(but was never used). A blaze caused by vandals on bonfire night 1980 brought down the floor of the chapel, damaged and blackened much of the interior and destroyed the elegant outer staircase.Chris Pearson28/03/2015
From S, RoW under rly br. Visited all 3 summits, probably all similar. Mausoleum summit is artificial bank formed from summit which has been dug out. Muddy sleety morning.RHW21/02/2015
Parked easily on minor road to SSE. Good footpath all the way but tricky to stay on the most direct one. Summit in the mausoleum. Pity about the significant fencing. No access problems - unless you want to enter the mausoleum area. All around is about the same height.destaylor06/03/2014
