Through the hedge and along the compound. Without a GR trig might be difficult to spot. Job done.NormanW25/02/2020
Bagged as we were returning from our Pembrokeshire holiday. Doesn't get any more unremarkable!huwthomas06/11/2019
trigpoint, gate to mast compound open but this does not allow access to pillar. went through gap in hedge from road to access pillar.cjo21/08/2019
Parked in gateway and followed the baggers trail.rhalstead09/03/2019
Ditto Gill. Parked in mast entrance. The hole in the hedge is a short distance to the west. Then a short walk along the perimeter of a crop field. Fortunately the summit feature is a trig, otherwise finding it in the dark may not have been straightforward.Topographer5728/09/2018

As per other visitors. Easy winRamblingpaul02/08/2018

Through the gap!Neil Midgley24/06/2018
Really! Took longer to put on boots than do the walk. Really really sillynickywood127/04/2018
Perfectly easy in the dark. The hole in the hedge is easy to spot, and no crawling is required. The trig is also easy to find. Not worth wasting daylight on this one, and not much to recommend in terms of night views either, just traffic on the road below.Gill11/01/2018
Through the hedge; at first I walked past the trig point hidden in the hedge.GWR Chris26/08/2017
About as exciting as Crowborough! Overcast, warm and calm.iangalbraith04/07/2017
Parked at the entrance to the waterworks. Found the gap in the hedge which looks very well used! Short wander to the trig point.Neolith14/04/2017
Long drive if doing as part of a multi Marilyn day but a short walk from reservoir entrance up west side of reservoir. Thought access from road was going to be difficult, apparently there is a gate a little further on can not verify as went through hole in hedge kindly cut by previous visitor. No crops in field so wandered to middle to take photo and stand on what looked to me like natural higher ground, but probably is not.SteveSmith24/11/2016
Third of the American election tumps without an r. Trig outside reservoir compound access via break on hedge 50m west of the gates. S2352vegibagger08/11/2016
In mist and mizzle on a miserable day.Gayle28/09/2016
Solo trip from layby opposite gate . Walked along side of stubble field to easily find trig in between field hedge and utility compound fence. Trig appeared to be high point though was able to walk on stubble to check. 10 minute trip.Denise 23/09/2016
Having picked up a blister on previous hill I'd reluctantly decided best to cut my weekend short. But this top as well as Foel Cwmcerwyn had been nagging me for some time so wasnt going to be denied this time. What to say about Brandy Hill... A gap in the hedge fifty paces from the gate gives access to the field. Trig pillar is behind a fence but not in the compound. Amazing that its still there really. Thats about it...stig_nest16/09/2016
Parked 2 miles to the east at redgate. Then descended north to get below 50m. From there turned around and ascended via the path and road. Walked through the open gate into the field before walking alongside the compound and over the fence to the trig.garyhoney29/08/2016
Marilyn 3 of 5 bagged after a successful 2 lighthouse + other Siblet trip. Nice warm sunshine. Solo from car. Slight problem getting to the start of this one as my maps did not show the new road.assynt_bob14/05/2016
Roadside... hopped into field at gateway 200m or so west of water works compound and followed field boundary around to find trig point, which is outside the big fences.geralddavison30/04/2016
Someone had been at the hawthorn hedge with shears to get at the trig point. I went through the hole and over fence to visit it. The road goes up a bit from where I parked - the layby by the telegraph station. 10 mins of establishing the highest spot but essentially a roadside Ma with little to recommend except the bagging.pwheeler29/04/2016
C class road runs across summit top. Operated for SOTA on VHF from gate at communications compound.G4OBK (Phil)08/12/2015
Started from SN221125 on the old A477 in an attempt to get a proper walk out of this one. Not recommended though, as the right of way isn't always obvious on the ground and required wading through a filthy muddy farmyard. Summit easily accessed through gap in hedge.Tony J11/10/2015
throogh hole in hedge west of compound TP just outside compound buildingunderhill05/08/2015
5/6 Gap in hedge is still there ! very quick bagFergalh01/08/2015
Parked opposite entrance to utilities compound. Narrow gap in hedge just to west of compound, stepped over a wire fence, walked along side of fenced compound to trig point. Stepped over another wire fence to get access to trig point. On my own. First of 5 today.mike.hoult18/05/2015
As per Gerry Bowes. The gap in the hedge is still established.bowlesy03/04/2015
There is an opening in the hedge at the west side of the compound that leads to the trig point. With GB.bolton04/03/2015
Parked by farm gate at SN21314 13443 Crossed road & went through gap in hedge & over two fences to trig point. (PM)gerrybowes04/03/2015
Gap in hedge to right of compound entrance re-established - thorn and bramble cut back. Summit point appears to be where trig pillar is sited, close to compound perimeter fence. Another field boundary fence, with attendant gorse, to be negotiated to access summit. Completely uninspiring.jonglew28/07/2014
All road works finished. Simple walk round the compound with a small gap in the hedge from the road.Rob Pen y Garn30/06/2014
Brandy Hill RIP - If you want to see masts, building sites and a large road cutting slicing through a hill this is the place to go. Very sad. We sped on to the coast as quickly as possible but a Dutch couple were poking arround when we visited and seem too be finding it very interesting!mindlessflogger17/04/2014
Hardest part - getting through hedgeBramley14/09/2013
I recalled it was on the outside of the compound but not which way to approach it. I went in to the left of the compound and past the giant earthmovers that were present as part of the road building going on nearby. After coming face to face with a hedge I backed off and went in the other way, via the hole in the hedge to the right of the compound and soon found the trig.Father Ted10/09/2013
Mrs Anchovy considered this a pointless diversion after a day out at Colby Woodland Garden. It was hard to disagree really.Herbert Anchovy29/03/2013
not worth the bother and new road not helpinggigglejon18/12/2012
Stopped at padlocked gate - will count for now by virtue of the 2m rule!amswanston30/09/2012
One of tghose "Am I an anorak" Marilyns. From the road you climb through the thorny hedge to the right of the aerial compound, follow the hedge and it is at the back of the mast looking just like the photo.clivevilla15/11/2011
Given away by gap in the hedge and cut in the chain link. Ta.Eddie24/02/2011
With: hb; Passed this whilst en route to Narberth and Pembrokeshire.Ian Baines10/08/2010

Climbed through hedge into field by comms tower. Trig pt on old wall by tower. GPS wouldn't work by tower. dbb16/06/2010
Trig point under large mast at field boundary. Enter field by gate or via gap in hedge if you don't mind scratched legs.Dugswell215/02/2009
Now reservoir and padlocked gate. Top 60m away.destaylor14/08/2008
Made the mistake of climbing into mast compound only to find the trig was outside it! Then round RH side through field, still awkward to get at.Aye Jimmy22/07/2008
Nothing to addDusty15/03/2008
Found trig point at second attempt. Another leg scratcher!! Did Middleton Hill a bit later - a much nicer topsignyred29/06/2006
Up again 10/05/2011. Barbed wire was cut. Used rucsac to get past gorse.chrisbien22/05/2006
