Walked the full perimeter to which there was a moat and huge metal barbed wire fence warning to stay out so at the risk of getting caught or arrested on that basis Iím bagging itThe-Z-Man10/04/2019
Visited with a lot of effort, pretty sure that it was avoidable! Recorded 70m at the North side of the copse and 72m near the Mini turbine contraption. Back the same way. Parked on Whitefield lane in layby. An adventurous foray... Topo section R01 re-completed!Dazingdale05/08/2018
Third visit, but first time a way in was found. Summit very vague, a flat field crowned by a small transmitter(?) with mini-turbine and solar panel. Wonder what that's for? Went to N side of copse to another (lower) top.Aye Jimmy15/05/2018
