Parked at start of very pleasant bridleway. Short excursion across ditch and into field to top.Bramley20/05/2019
Delightful bridleway from W end of Hannington village, with strange square tower in field to left at start. Short excursions out into fields for high points.Aye Jimmy14/04/2019
From minor road to the SE. West on track. At the field corner where you take the track north is the one top. You go around an obvious uphill field edge to the other top which is in the middle of a crop field.clivevilla30/01/2019
Visited both tops from the Hannington bridle way.Chris Peart30/12/2018
From the west end of Hannington. Good bridleway all the way. Proposed twin top may be slightly higher.Campbell Singer23/12/2017
En route to Cardiff.Barbara Singer23/12/2017
Both the SE and NW summits are easily accessed and close to the adjacent bridleway tracks. The SE summit is a slight hump in arable field. The NE summit is in field of Rape. Unable to sight between summits. Old maps suggest SE summit is the highest.RichardM30/03/2017
Walked up from the village for a Swindon TUMP completion.Dugswell207/03/2017

Revisit for SE summit to recomplete Swindon. Quickie from E by torchlight on way home. Field edge E of track junction.RHW27/11/2016
Return to bag Vegibagger's twin top at SU 174 921 which I accessed up the right of way from the ESE. High point in cereal crop to the right of the path.Herbert Anchovy25/11/2016
Was set on a clockwise walk from Hannington on ROW past and on to the field at the designated high point. However, while at that point, noticed on both 1:25k and Geograph that there is an equal high point of 127m to the SE just of another branch of the ROW. Grid ref 173 921. Don't see any mention of this twin summit or of visiting it by any of the others out any mention in summit notes. On the basis of my belief that one can't claim a summit that has twin top unless one has visited both summits, it may be concluded that I may be the only person to summit it properly.vegibagger14/11/2016
As per PeterDarranc07/07/2016
A ghost horse! Suddenly thundering hooves came galloping towards me around the blind curve of the enclosed bridleway - thumping heart and panic - where could I go to get out of the way until the noise was almost upon me and still nothing appeared, and then two horses with riders charged by at full gallop in the field on the other side of the hedge.Chris Pearson25/05/2016
Climbed in the pouring rain on the last day of the Easter HolidaysDanMaisieBex11/04/2016
Anticloclwise round bridleway: lovely summer's day: no sign of any mud.GordonAdshead08/08/2015

Along Bridleway from just west of Hannington. An easy strollPeterD30/05/2015
Highest point is on the PROW running north to south.Swindon Bagger16/05/2015
Followed bridleway and then a quick dart into the field with its winter cereal crop. Three roe deer near the top.Herbert Anchovy12/12/2014
Unremarkable hill S of Hannington village; extremely muddy bridleway leading to it - use the footpath in damp weather. Summit just off bridleway (to SW) in field of young cereal crop.jonglew24/04/2014
From Hannington, 40yrds into ploughed field.rhalstead08/12/2013
Pleasant evening stroll from Hannington village (plenty of easy parking and a pub too). Good tracks and paths, suggest a round walk. Top, which is fairly obvious, is along the edge of field next to track - gaps in hedge so easy to access.Hillsidenick09/07/2013
Tree belt; v muddy approach from NE. 15/11/16 update -Vegibagger noticed there's another 127m summit to SE at SU174921 - unticked for revisitRHW08/12/2012
