From North, path, then a route up through bracken to wall and HP.PeterD05/10/2018
Bracken - especially on the east (summit) side of the wallcarole engel01/01/2018
Congleton - The Cloud - Long Edge - The Bent - Gun - Hillswood Hill - Leek. Snow most of the day, 2-3 inches lying everywhere and hills in thick cloud. Same route as others, no real problems, dropped off to W through fields to road at gate.Mark Jackson09/12/2017
as for David Evansarranc04/09/2017
From Wolflow Road (where there is parking): hopped over field gate ignoring private property/ large dogs exercising sign. Dash across field and hopped over electric fence. Steeply uphill thru woodland and brambles then onto summit ridge deep in bracken. Fought thru bracken to summit point and returned the same way!! With Mart and Daisy.John Eley02/07/2017
From roadside near greenmeadows farm. Not all that bad and a track through the dead bracken all the way to the top. Found an electric fence on way down. Zapped twice -once on the arm the other somewhere a bit lower down!!stig_nest17/04/2017
From the north as described by others. Good viewpoint for Sutton Common and Shutlingsloe.davidpettit8404/03/2017
Verge parking due north on the small loop road (alt 938ft). Walk back south to the road and look for an access path almost directly across the road. This leads all the way to the wall just before the summit. This has a stone step stile on the left for giving access to the summit area. Area used for shooting parties, hence the bench. 0.72 miles return. 20 minutes with 120 ft ascent.moorsman20/01/2017
Very nice little hillMark Sims14/01/2017
Quick ten minute clamber up through the dead bracken and bramble from the east.vegibagger29/12/2016
As others from road junction to the north.Alan Caine27/11/2016
Parked near bend on busy road over to Congleton (safely). Overgrown path opposite which I followed to just beyond disused quarry. Then cut uphill where ther are numerous paths cut through the undergrowth. Unusual. Then alongside wall to HP.Campbell Singer03/11/2016
Parked at SJ 90881 62171. Walked SW for about 50 yards to SJ 90825 62111, jumped over fence (former gateway) onto path through wooded area. At end of obvious path, trended up-bank to reach wall. Went past picnic table and over next wall, and summit in field. Agree with RHW that it has a (very large, natural) garden feel from North. Solo.David Evans17/09/2016
Started as per ngthack but continued for 50m beyond last little quarry, then broad track leads easily up through bracken to wall. Summit beyond picnic table, rock by wall 2m N of tree.Aye Jimmy30/03/2016
Parked on wide verge on Dial rd to the north. Then much as ngthack. Could hear work going on somewhere in woods.mart079720/03/2016
Left Sonja at Biddulph Grange garden, parked near the crossroads and crossed small fields behind farm buildings following a faint trod. Then followed stone wall to its highest point.Skip20/10/2015
From N, at night, has a back-garden feel to it so maybe not best route.RHW10/04/2015
petey14/02/2015
From road bend at 908621, over hurdle & chicken wire. Up ramp to small quarry. Left up faint f/p to wall. Follow wall along ridge past picnic table on plinth & little duck pond with in situ duck to wall junction. Over stile in wall. Summit a few metres further on. Could be either side of wall.ngthack11/12/2014
