Was here for the trig 7 or 8 years ago so good to get this one tidied up today.Alex C09/03/2020
Parked by a field entrance near the top of a lane signposted Durlow Common. Continued up the lane and then along the right of way to the ridgeline. Took in both summits and trig point along the way. Nice views across to the Malvern Hills!Gerry the Ranger06/03/2020
Usual start (SO6225037935).Visited both tops & trig.ger23/12/2019
Trig is between highest hills !gettingonabit03/11/2019
Same route as others. Room for the car by footpath sign. Nettles everywhere, especially around the trig. Solo.Dangerous Dave11/08/2019
Parked 6225037935. Grassy track passes by trig on NE side before high point near edge of track. Long wet grass made for soggy boots and trousers.NormanW20/07/2019
Parked at SO 622379 - straight forward path up from here to trackss on ridge. Bit of vegetation on route but pleasant compared to many other Marilyns. Crossed barbed wire fence and waded through nettles to trig on the way to the summit area. Summit needs a cairn - went to gps grid ref on hill bagging then had a good walk around (on and off the track) invade of other higher bits. Returned by same route. Bagged whilst en route to Cardiff for work.assynt_bob27/05/2019
From GR022379 parking at confluence of tracks. Track up the ridge spine, bypassed the trig at the side of the field (over barbed fence and midst brambles and nettles, wearing shorts! No thanks) summit unmarked on track, but shortly after zigzag round 2 high gate fences.N.Morters01/05/2019
1/6 after visiting Tom in Brum. Running, from SE. Just after dawn. Dry, warm, hazy but view. Out and back. Rounsfell17/02/2019
From Upper Hazel Farm.Very enjoyable stroll along the ridge track in the late afternoon sunshine.SteveG15/02/2019
Parked just down from Park Farm infront of a locked gate then walked directly up the footpath to the track, no problem with vegetation at this time of year. Walked along the ridge as stated by someone previously locked gates can be easily walked around onto track. Came down track from col ?? back to just beside the footpath on the road.JulieB27/12/2018
From SO 622379 - the path going up from here is thin and could be difficult to find in descent - it meets the ridge at about 70m E of a small transmitter mast. The path W along the ridge is blocked by two staggered and locked unscalable gates - the stagger allows them to be bypassed without difficulty, but then a BWF has to be negotiated to reach the trig. A vehicular track returns to the parking spot from SO 621382.Isbjorn11/11/2018
Ridge track from south east, a bit overgrown in places but mostly OK.Topographer5712/08/2018
Parked at SO622379 and took track to ridge to both summits. Thistles, brambles, nettles and horse flies - not a day for shortsRamblingpaul15/07/2018
With K from woods above Park Farm. Alive with houseflies and cleggs.Ashley14/07/2018
7/11M parked at start of path to the east.robertphillips20/10/2017
Stealth bag at the end of the day. Parked by Park Coppice in the gateway to a forestry track a few metres along from the start of the FP. Best not use this parking place during working hours, as there is work above. The FP is nice, narrow and steep, and joins a scruffy, grassy vehicle track, which runs to the top of the hill. Descent via the forestry track is quick and easy.Gill13/10/2017
Parked at field gate then ploughed through mud until track cleared a bit. Pleasant enough stroll along the ridge with good views to north east.SS19/03/2017
3/3. Parked just down from Park Farm then walked up a good track to high point on GPS then located the trig after it. Good views. Company: Solo well except for thousands of game birds.iandesbottes19/10/2016
A nice walk along the ridge. Lots of pheasants.jenx06/10/2016
Repeat as last time from the lane, cleared woods now regrowing. This is same place the FP goes from and if bold can take that up towards summit and cut the corner - the way we came down. Much better, clearer day. Many pheasants around and evidence of vehicles on the track but saw no one and visited tops and trig untroubled by naught but the lovely viewsnordicstar06/10/2016
From the millpond campsite up via tarrington common (nettle and bramble fest)GmacT09/07/2016
From Hazel Court. Overgrown ridge walk with good views to Malvern hills especially from top of Hazel Court track.twg2708/07/2016
Another good SOTA activation on 145-fm.G4OOE23/03/2016
Along ridge from Woolhope Cockshoot, muddy track at first, over south top and visited trig point on way back.PeterD13/03/2016
Stroll up a muddy forestry track. Through a gate which looks very out of place. Views muted today.stig_nest27/10/2015
From Hazel Court.squeegs05/07/2015
With Bevsimon and co17/04/2015
Parked at the top of the lane that goes through Durlow common. 627387. Followed the ROW to where it crosses the ridge and then followed the vehicle track along the ridge to the highest point. Not sure if this is a right of way but it should be as it follows a limestone ridge that has probably been walked for 1000s of years. Good views to the east.mindlessflogger02/01/2015
5/8 Parked at edge of forest where logging is taking place and walked up along muddy road to obvious high pointFergalh15/12/2014
Parked at 627387 on the bend where there is no gate onto the field. A pleasant but muddy walk of 1 hour 10 minutes with GB. Summit indistinct on pathway but we are sure we walked over it. With GB.bolton25/11/2014
Parked by a field entrance on lane just above Upper Hazel Farm (691223) – SW up lane to join bridleway – NW along bridleway to summit. (PM)gerrybowes25/11/2014
Walked up from Tarrington, took in Trigpoint and second top.Buteobuteo24/10/2014
As per David Gradwell for route and parking. Encountered no one apart from numerous Pheasants. Trig point on return.bowlesy19/10/2014
From parking to south on minor road as Tim747. Tree clearance ongoing. Went up FP to ridge-track, followed over south top, past trig and to dull summit. Hazy, misty day so views limited.nordicstar20/04/2014
With Val. Summit a distance from the trig point.mike.hoult07/11/2013
Parked at 62235 37930, took the track to the ridge, then stealthily avoided the man with the gun and dogs en-route to the top. Trig and S top on return, exiting the woods on the ROW. Pheasants don’t seem to understand the word stealth!tim74718/10/2013
Visited summit via the track to within 10m of trig point - overgrown with many nettles. Returned to SO 62073832 to set up SOTA ham radio. Operated with Geoff Fielding M6PYG. From car to trig point took us 13 minutes.G4OBK (Phil)14/07/2013
Parked nr the top of the lane from Durlow Common on a verge by a field entrance and walked to the public footpath. On the ridge, we then walked NW to the trig (this is behind a barbed wire fence) and then on to the summit. Views are hidden by the hedgerows. Walked back to the start and then on a little further to the second summit. Rather disappointing walk.hmt100027/05/2013
obvious summitJohnStoneham18/03/2012
Parked at Alder's End (11:00) and walked up track and path to crest of ridge and then NW to highest point by road. Didn't meet anybody. Finish 11:55dbb16/03/2012
NW summitJohn Higgs04/10/2011
Squeezed into a parking spot at 622379, ROW to Jones Coppice then along the ridge to trig point and Sheepcote Hill (the Marilyn top). Told by an estate worker there was no path and not to go up the road to the summit but did so anyway when he was out of sight. No welcome here, bag it as quick as you can.pwheeler08/08/2011
Parked at entrance to track at SO 62250 37913. Walked up track then along ridge to highest point. On way back bagged trig and southern summit. Spot height is 10m into rape field for southern summit. Brother Ed now ardent rape field bagger!!David Gradwell26/04/2011
Climbed gate and ascended track to Bunkers Hill then along the ridge for both tops. Informed that 'that was a raid into private property' by two shooters unwittingly standing near my camouflaged bike on return.Eddie16/04/2011

Visiting north-west (SO613389) and south-east (SO624379)summits and the trig point in between.Neil Midgley19/07/2010
Started from Stoke Edith and turned back by gamekeeper. Restarted from Tarrington, Alders End without difficulty.Lionel Bidwell18/07/2010
Had previously logged this, then deleted it as we only did the trig, and didn't think we had done the hill summit. But reviewing the track we walked, discovered we actually did the summit also. From Durlow Common, E to Wren's Nest then SW to ridge path. NW on ridge to summit, then returned SE for trig and then S Top before returning to start point.jonglew19/06/2010
Walked up the hill with TraceyJohnboy724/04/2010
Splendid walk up from Tarrington and grand views of the Malverns from the top. Visited both tops and saw dozens of buzzards as well as large flocks of buntings and finches.Herbert Anchovy05/02/2010
Nice walk along ridge visiting both tops and the trig. lots of game birds beware of shooting !
walked up from alders end game birds everywhere visited both summits herd some shooting & dogs barking in the distancehodder21/10/2008
Lizzie & I had a little bushwhack along the top through the woods. Not the most memorable Marilyn ever. Same day as Aconbury Hill.DanHolme29/09/2008
SE top. NW top climbed on 08/06/2008.Man of Kernow101/07/2008
Solo. Parked car in Park Coppice. Up a track (not shown on OS 1:50,000 map, sheet 149, Edition B2) towards Seager Hill. There is a long, nearly level summit ridge running SE-NW with a track almost on the summit line. The trig point is not at the highest point. I walked on until clearly going downhill and the back, going to one side in brambles for the highest point, which is not marked on the ground. I retraced my outward route.pwbellarby02/05/2008
Pleasant easy walk - lots of mist saw nothing.destaylor20/04/2008
Stealth bag in GOML country. Up from SO622379 to 1st top then along ridge past trig to 2nd top. Hazy day, views poor. Big badger set by road where you park.robphys13/02/2008

Parked at SE and horsey sign saying 'Riding restricted to permit holders only'. Walked up lane past S top, the trig, and so to Marilyn summit: two stones on tree stump 2m to SW of path at edge of trees.Aye Jimmy19/08/2006
Bagged summit then regained track to gain a telling off from gamekeeper, headed back SE from where I began.Dugswell201/05/2006

First Marilyn of day in a tour of all Herefordshire Marilyns in one day by bike/foot. Didn't visit twin top (strictly speaking they can't both be Marilyns)desperate dan02/07/2005
Parked at Stoke Edith and walked via Cockshoot to the ridge path. The northern summit was found on this path. Visited the trig but in the process fell on a barbed wire fence, many scratches.Descended by non existent path to Alder?s End.garyhoney18/11/2000
Date is first visit. Notes from later...summit is 3rd bump from E, no access problems encountered (Sunday), not recommended from village to W. park @ 623382, BW then (private) FP to summit RHW10/10/1999
One of 8 scattered Marilyns / subs by car and foot. Just a month since escaping the Elbrus fire disaster.Chris Pearson22/09/1998
A point on a long ridge. Contretemps with keeper about only going as far as trig- no access, etc.arranc29/08/1998
There is room for 2 or 3 cars at SO622379, from where a RoW leads up to the ridge. From the ridge the SE top is only 150 metres away, and the main summit is about 1.4km to the NE. The ridge is wide and clear, and open to horse riders 'with a licence' - so why not to walkers too? In the event I went to the summit and back without any problem. The ridge path has the feel of a route which was a RoW, but which the landowner has managed to get closed.David Purchase15/03/1998
I tried routes from the north, but there were shooting parties out. A polite request at the Estate Office for access at a better time of year was met with the rudest refusal I have ever had. The Estate Manager ostentatiously recorded my car registration number as I left: I decided not to go back and tell him I was changing the car the following week! Better luck a few months later.David Purchase23/10/1997
A couple of visits, before football matches.fasgadh01/10/1996
