As per C S. Rotherham recompletion.Bramley25/06/2020
Least difficult route is probably over the churchyard wall. Bailey is covered in nettles and brambles but the top is achievable.Campbell Singer21/06/2020
Walked to rear of houses for easier access to mound.andrew brown06/06/2020
Via church (cut BM). Motte climbed from W side, mostly missing the brambles. c 8m high, quite a striking feature with pronounced moatRHW24/05/2020
Parked om Rotherham Lane and made circuit of churchyard and vicarage garden. As it was 11:30 am resisted temptation to hop over churchyard wall. Reasonably content that the natural high point at junction of footpaths is much the same height as the motte.GordonAdshead23/05/2020
Morning run, high point may be in fenced off areaholtsd16/05/2020
4th and final tump of the day and this re-completes Rotherham ua. 1st was Westgate Hill followed by Bank Top and Houghton Main Hill.
