Visited on my own while on a hill bagging trip to Lincolnshire and surrounding areas.magirob10/09/2019
Revisit for amended summit location.malcorbett26/08/2019
From Thixendale road. Direct semi-path through the crops made by someone less scrupulous than Beeliner.squeegs14/08/2019
On own. There are lay-bys on both sides of the A166 close to minor road 'The Bence' to Thixendale. Walked along this minor road past the fenced off covered reservoirs and telecomms tower compound (trig point inaccessible) to gap in hedge then across field to tumulus. Difficult at this time of year with crops in field but managed to follow circuitous tractor wheel gaps to avoid walking on our food. Suggest others visit when no crops as Nick Down 1 logged.Beeliner11/08/2019
From nearby layby.mart079719/03/2019
Detour on way home from Sunderland after watching Stanley draw 2-2.Longwojo16/02/2019
A return visit in the light of the summit relocation. With no crops in the field, the walk to the tumulus was straightforward and pleasant in the last light of the setting sun.Nick Down104/09/2018

From A166 layby, bashed through the willow herb and nettles then carefully trod around the crops to the summit tree clump.Topographer5705/08/2018
After Izzy’s graduation in York, in thundery rain. High speed as farmer spraying spuds. Rounsfell27/07/2018
Seeing as I was doing this on a long distance through-walk I certainly got to see the best of this hill.Alex C18/04/2018
Over the fence to Tumulus of tree Trigs across the road in water treatment compoundjmistry8619/02/2018
Cycled up there from my new house just south of Pocklington. Was hoping to get there to see the sunrise, but it was just too cloudy.dianepick14/01/2018

Born and bred in Brid so have passed this summit hundreds of times. Nice to bag my county top at last!summitter17/12/2017
Ground at trig pillar may be natural HP, but large saucer barrow in arable field to NE much more interesting.jonglew07/12/2017
Parked in layby. Trig still there although fence to be climbed if you want to do it as well. No views from summit of tree mound. At least it's done.iangalbraith28/10/2017
8/8M last of the day in the dark layby short walk over crop field to trees.robertphillips21/10/2017
Parked in the layby, walked across the stubble field, waving nicely to the farmer doing the ploughing, and climbed the mighty tumulus. Then turned round and walked back to the car. Not worthy of an extended walk, shall we say?Gill03/10/2017
Looked at the minor road sideand main road. No access to tumulus through unharvested wheat.Moorponder19/08/2017

8 mile walk. Bishop Wilton - Givendale - Ridings Plantation - Deep Dale - Garrowby Hill - Crow Wood - Bishop Wilton. Like a south of England summit (non-existent) in the north!callumorr10/06/2017
County top outing, tumulus with trees on top was an easy spot as nothing in the area looks like it. The trig however is now out of reach inside a Yorkshire waters compound for a underground reservoir. Park in either lay by on each side of the A166, after the Bishop Wilton turn there is a significant climb after this look for a transmitter tower in the corner of a field in said compound from here the Tumulus is easy to spot. Plan your visit as top is in a crop field to save explaining to the landowner why your walking over his crop.WAYNE ROWLETT17/03/2017

Parked up in the layby for a short walkJohnnyBoy30/10/2016
Parked in layby on A166, short walk along the road, through gap in hedge, across short stretch of ploughed field to the cairn.Cas-gwent21/09/2016
Crossed the stubble field via a gap in the hedge. Best time of year to visit hills with cereal crops, just before ploughing starts. The tumulus is a much better summit than the trig point. With Eire, Evan, Sail, Danu & Coel.Dangerous Dave10/09/2016
parked in layby...lovely view of the trig point behind the 8foot green steel railings. Webt to Wharram Percy for a nice walk :)keithelliott24/07/2016
With Simon. Crops protected by thistles and stinging nettles. One for the winter.Newton Maximus12/07/2016
4/6 Fourth climb of last day of 3 day climbing weekend (Pule Hill/Rombalds Moor/Stock Hill/Bishop Wilton Wold/Great Chishell/Chishell Common)Fergalh02/05/2016
My easiest Marilyn by far - from the layby a short stroll over the field (ploughed but no crops visible at present) to the tumuli surrounded by trees - special but felt naughty. Near by trig alluded us though locked away behind a 6ft high covered reservoir fence (what a shame).briandavies07/04/2016
An easy stroll from the lay-by nearby. Possibly the easiest Marilyn unless you cycle up the hill.JohnStoneham20/03/2016
Barely 100m from the road...loved the trig point nearby fenced offN.Morters01/03/2016
Quick wander over frost covered field and back.SS13/02/2016
To make a walk of it: Stone Dale picnic site - Wayrham Dale - Bradenham Dale - Worm Dale - Painsthorpe Wold Farm - summit - car.davidpettit8407/02/2016
Circular walk from Bishop Wilton, easy approach to the tumulus across the field from the road.yorkie05/02/2016
A few minutes out-and-back from the nearby layby on the A166.Gayle27/12/2015
From layby over fence to tumulus. Only grass in field. Then a look at the Halifax bomber memorial. Very moving. How young they all were.ngthack20/12/2015
Pleasant sunny evening. The crop is all in, just some stubble and a few bales of straw. Got a bit confused and failed to find the trig (in different relative position on the 25K and 50K maps). Paid respects at the nearby memorial (WWII Halifax bomber crash)M3WDD26/09/2015

Done by bike from Pocklington as part of a ride round Yorks Wolds. None of this going past on the 840 bus.IanHHill04/08/2015
Easily reached by car.stever31/05/2015
Will be any easy winter bag from the lay-by, crops too delicate in the field to reach the summit at present.JohnStoneham25/05/2015
From lay-by like most adventurous souls.Field was fairly recently planted-it felt very trespassy despite gaps in hedge.With Bridget.catman17/05/2015

Parked in lay-by by reservoir compound. A short walk to the tumulus. With JT>Sprog21/02/2015
Drive by summit on way back fro Durham. Parked in layby on other side of road to make it a bit of a walk. Could not access trig as within fenced off utility compond so walked along fence boundary, much to wife's dismay.SteveSmith20/02/2015
