Very sunny, bit windy, very very busy. It rained earlier in the day - so very clear - certainly could see Titterstonr Clee 50+ miles away to the SE and Liverpool Cathedral to the NW. Strange realisation that I've summited most of the hills shonw on the toposcope and visible today.M3WDD11/07/2020

Houses at 908634. 3 spaces off road here, not apparently attached to the houses as the locals also use them. Track to summit up past the side of the houses. Overcast, mild, windy and good views.iangalbraith11/06/2017

Glorious day to re-visit The Cloud with Lisa Mountain. 13.40vegibagger29/12/2016
Very pleasant walk up from Timbersbrook car park. Easy route to follow. Even though it was after 3pm there we quite a few families about. The weather was cloudy but the local hills were all visible. The summit was I believe the rocky outcrop a short distance from the trig point and direction indicator. I heard plenty of birds but only saw a few Meadow Pipits. Time was 50 minutes for about 2.25 miles.isabelle13/11/2016

From railway station, along the canal then along footpaths; easy navigation on a beautiful spring day. Views north twds Cat and Fiddle good, but hazy westwards over the Cheshire plain. Returned via Timbersbrook. A very pleasant walk from a hill oft seen from the train, well worth the efort.JOHNS28/05/2016
