Parked at Village Inn and followed the 'Abberley Circular Walk.' Just follow the pictures of the clocktower. Views not so good due to the walk being mostly wooded area. Some good views at the trig can be found.Viroco02/01/2017
Fine hill enjoyed on a long linear east-west walk.Alex C16/07/2016

3/6 Quick hop up from road. very step but short ascent and a quick visit to clock tower nearby is also worth the short walkFergalh22/03/2015

Another easy bag, parked just off A443 and walked 400m or so to summit. Bagged the trig also before visiting the Clock Tower (an OS intersected station) across the road - far more impressive.jonglew15/06/2013
Parked at the Hundreds House Hotel and did a round of Woodbury Hill and Abberley Hill in the snow.rhalstead24/03/2013

Parked to west. Good path all the way. Stroll - good little hill.destaylor04/01/2011
It took all day for me to bag this one probably becasue I did the 30 geocaches nearby at the same time. Nice wooded hill with good views from top. Highest point about a meter or two from the trig point I think.Father Ted12/09/2010
Nice walk up on well signed path.

On Worcestershire Way. Column adopted by walking club.arranc04/04/1998
Left Galloway Solway firth early morning two days before to drive all way down to check cols for Abberley hill and then all way down to Milk hill col. Today left parents in Cheltenham to actually climb Abberley Hill itself. As I'm pulling on my boots, pull a muscle in my back which momentarily seizes up and significantly frightens me and I wince with pain. Gingerly finish lacing and carefully stand up and can't straighten my spine properly. Hobble very carefully up the hill. Ground drops steeply down to the north for 100m or so. To the south three other slightly lower wooded tops grace the skyline.vegibagger12/03/1997
Estimated date as no log kept. Climbed from the valley. An enjoyable day.ijpowell01/07/1987
Probably summited between 1966 and 1969, but not definitely until about 30 years later.Viewfinder01/06/1968
