Ample kerbside parking at SD88301 15913. Thru gate and followed path up thru pleasant woodland then turned left along wall to the summit. Good views of the South Pennines.With LuckyJohn Eley06/08/2019
Plentiful roadside parking to the north of the hill. Enter through a fieldgate and follow the track up to the wall. Turn left to follow the wall to the summit. The spot height is in a private garden but, looking over the wall, this appears to have been lowered for building purposed. Summit appears now to be on the access side of the wall, a raised tree stump.moorsman07/03/2019
