Cracking little hill with great views. Parked at layby SD9917808103 then proceeded to circumnavigate the hill looking for a discrete way up! Eventually headed between houses up the track to the Telecom mast then up to the summit. Ran back down to Dale Lane then back to car.John Eley21/10/2018
As for Dugswell2, except I was warned off by a man - private - no paths, etc.arranc10/09/2018
Parked on Delph Lane then up between houses to barbed wire covered padlocked gate, then an easy amble to the summit on a grey damp morning.Dugswell210/12/2016
4th hill of 9 today on a 17 mile walk from Marsden to Mossley, climbing Pule Hill, Ox Hey top and Harrop Edge continuing on Harrop edge lane then took fp down to lane to fp running along the bottom of this hill. Climbed gate to prominent boulder, over fence (with plenty of sheep for company) and steeply up to small summit. Great little hill!! Descent fown through open fence to corner near church but reslised that between stone wall snd lane was a 3 metre drop so climbed fence and edged along until height diminished near property and then climbed down and dropped last bit to lane.Dazingdale29/10/2016

From NE. Sunny post work Fri eve ascent, great find ChrisRHW04/09/2015
As AJ, but parked at end of old track to mast. Super little hill with great views all round. (a classic Tump). Chris Pearson is forgiven for discovering two more Tumps, now that I have restored my county totals. Home at 12.30GordonAdshead19/08/2015
Parked near White Lion at bottom of Delph Lane and probably found the same route as Jake via short track through houses, passing barbed wired gate, then sheep fields. Summit at S end of grassy ridge.Aye Jimmy15/08/2015
I spotted this minnow from the surrounding higher hills and it looked a possible candidate for Tump-dom so climbed it via the fp from NE then through field gate and two sheep fields. Later confirmed it as a Tump peering at contours on 1:10000 mapping on Geograph. Interesting to see Jake had thought the same on an earlier visit.Chris Pearson06/08/2015
Ahh, I thought this should be on here! Eyed it up during a circuit of Harrop Edge, Standedge and Ox Hey Top. No paths marked but I found a way from Delph Lane up a track between houses towards a mast. Where it turned 90 degrees I continued uphill over a gate to the top. No cairn. Excellent views of the surroundings. Returned the same way with no trouble.Jake99418/02/2015
