A bit of a drive by, by the usual routeGill02/11/2017
According to my 2016 OS 1:25000 there appears to be a permissive path from the road north of the summit direct to the trig point and this is where the bit of fence with rolled back barbed wire can be found in a gap in the hedge. The point slightly uphill from here where the RoW should start is a gap in the hedge with fence and barbed wire still in place.ijpowell13/05/2017
Parked as others. Went down to next field where barbed wire has been cut and rolled back. Jaunt up to top and back.SS15/04/2017

Parked to the north on the narrow lane but with one parking place. No stile into filed but fence easy to hop over. An easy bag. Got caught out by my SatNav later as it directed me along a road north with a ford on it that I didn't want to cross. A lot of backtracking needed.Father Ted10/04/2016
