Parked by the gate to the quarry (not far before the farm) on the minor road (GR 426805). Up through the gate on the path through quarry, kept to the path to the left side of the quarry, over a barbed wire fence over a field and then over another barbed wire fence into the summit trees. Easy to find summit. Total round trip about 20 mins. Not the most exciting of Marilyns.JulieB11/01/2020

2/4 from the quarry gate just east of Viewedge Farm. Short walk over grass and picking route up the quarry and into field/wood to summit.N.Morters11/07/2019
Started from the footpath next to Stokesay castle through a few fields of pasture before finding the way marked path. I followed this until I was below the summit and then just bashed my way up over quite steep tree filled slopes. Disturbed some deer at the top which was the only thing of interest on the summit.Peterb03/06/2019

Solo. From gate to SSSI quarry SE of Viewedge Farm. Up road and path on west side of Viewedge Farm, into field and then into wood. Not an inspiring hill.pwbellarby05/03/2019

Parked by Quarry SSSI gate. Picking way through quarry more interesting than summit reached past masts and along woods.KC05/10/2018

Parking area on the Roman Road directly north. Followed path through woods and across a few fields to Clapping Wicket. Track up to summit ridge then followed fence to high point. Back the same way. Solo.Dangerous Dave06/08/2018

Loop from Stokesay Castle. Up past Clapping Wicket, to SE tip of forest, then back N along the fence where there is a very faint path. Return via Shropshire Way from 435 797.Clive G23/06/2018
4/7 today. Parked by gate to SSSI and quarry. Wandered up through quarry and through fields towards summit. Crossed fence and readily found high point in woods. Lots of bluebells out. Myrddyn Phillips joined me for this hill and he trimbled the high point despite the tree challenges - I await his blog for the results. As we drove past the farm we saw two black poodles by the gate.assynt_bob04/05/2018
Approach from SE - no sight nor sound of poodles!?. Fairly open woods - little bits of incipient paths leading to summit area. Hill top in nice bluebell woods.ger30/04/2018
From NW, past Clapping Wicket,then forest track, then directly up through trees, easy but steep. HP just inside wood at spot height.PeterD22/04/2018

By shortest route. Got lost in quarry first. After Titterstone Clee, while working. Rounsfell29/09/2017
From Discovery Centre in Craven Arms, using path to Clapping Wicket, E a little on track then straight up through trees - steep. Descended S in wood to path then back to Clapping Wicket - an easier route. On by path and road to Broome and Aston on ClunAlanD20/09/2017
Parked near View Edge Farm with its giant black poodles, track to the side then through the woodland to find the woody summit shrouded in trees.briandavies17/09/2017
Quick jog up. Parked a few hundred yards from the poodle residence. Went over a couple of barbed wire fences. Summit mound in the trees. Plenty of nettles will not be visiting again.isabelle06/08/2017

With K. From S starting at public footpath and moving through wood.Ashley16/04/2017
From nearby minor road, adequate grass verge about 100m east. Public path around local dwelling, where three giant poodles had their say. Then up the side of the field. A bit of a non summit, woodland obstructs the views.Topographer5710/04/2017
From minor road to the south like many before me.Alan Caine24/03/2017
No view! In forest, indistinct HP amongst mixed trees. We walked up from Stokesay castle, via Clapping Wicket at the western edge of the forest, round the edge of the forest to approach from the south.Denise 24/03/2017
Walked through wood, will have superb bluebell display in a few weeks timecjo26/02/2017
From car park at Stokesay Castle. Obvious way up is by Clapping Wicket. Instead of this I tried to follow zigzagging tracks/path marked on 1:25,000 map up through wood starting from 431812. Horribly overgrown inparts and not recommended. Down by Claaing Wicket, a much better idea.lenman29/01/2017
