Parked up at services then an easy stroll to the summit and then the Vanessa like Severn Bridge trig point with Iain Brown.Dugswell208/03/2017
Visited for the SW summit, just above insurance building / Travelodge, rough grass 20m W of (non OS) trig pillar (which presumably relates to Severn bridge construction / monitoring).RHW25/02/2017
Parked at motorway services and ascended the new top. Followed path through the woods and across fields to the old top.webmaster19/02/2017
Had a niggle (since proved right thanks to Lidar work by Chris C & George) that this grassy mound could be higher than the existing Aust Hill top 800+m away. Hillock possibly created when the then UK's largest cafe (now an insurance office) was built -with its view of the original Severn Crossing Bridge. A survey pillar on the summit is presumably associated with the bridge construction.Chris Pearson06/02/2017
as for Gordonarranc20/01/2016
Fortunately I visited when bagging Aust Hill. It just seemed too obvious a hill to ignore and added to the walk's interest. Had a nice view of the bridge and then walked through the wood, along the river and over pasture to the original Tump.Herbert Anchovy15/09/2015
