From Throxenby Mere (TA010886) via small (unmapped) path to the W of telecoms masts.summitsup25/03/2019
Drove up the track near Beacon Lodge as the plethora of no parking signs near GHQ deterred me. As it turned out good track and another branched over the fields to the Tumuli. One barb wire fence crossed at corner to the summit area.N.Morters07/03/2019
With Jo, from car park near Raincliffe Farm. Ascent via Middle Road and Shield’s Trod, descent via Rowbrow Road to Throxenby Mere. A lovely sunny afternoon with good visibility.amblerbob17/02/2019
From the car park at Throxenby Mere. Up the muddy bridleway past Row Brow Farm. Ignore the first track immediately after the first mast compound. Go down the short track to the second mast compound and immediately before the gate into the compound ahead go right and a track will be found. This is a continuation of the bridleway that the map shows as stopping to the north east of the summit (though I would challenge anyone to ride a horse along it). Follow the track through a couple of gates and at the third one you can make your way across the field to the top.Clach Liath20/01/2019

Parking available on grass verge by bend at 011871 – Through gate & then N. along RoW & through 3 more gates before heading across to the summit tumulus. The circle of stones on the summit are the remains of Baron Albert’s Tower, a 19th century stone folly.gerrybowes02/09/2017
