From ENE starting just below Hill House Farm. Nice gentle ascent on smooth grass through trees and meadows. Continued past indicator on summit to tower. Scrambled onto top of nearby Elephant Rock.Topographer5703/10/2018
2nd Marilyn of the day on way down to Cornwall to see Steve/Charlie/Harris. Parked at Deer Hall Park. 45 min round trip.Longwojo29/09/2018
Parked at Elmley Castle (by water building) and wandered up the bridleway/paths to summit. Saw the cow pats mentioned from a few days ago and confirm their size. Saw cattle on descent but they were in a neighbouring field. Hill bagged after a day working in Gloucester.assynt_bob27/09/2018
Second of two solo West Midlands Marilyns. After an early morning wander up Walton Hill, drove to Emley Castle. Parked next to a small water treatment building near the end of Hill Lane where there is room for a couple of cars. Followed the RoW up past some spectacular cow pats to join the Wychavon Way & then on to the summit. Fortunately didn't encounter the cattle responsible! The threatened rain was now sweeping in from the SW obscuring much of the view including Walton Hill from which this hill had been visible. Just picked out some of the Malverns & Cleeve Hill before a quick inspection of the tower & the hill fort & then a rapid descent by the same route.NotReallyABagger22/09/2018

Return visit after 10 years, this time solo and taking in the other hillfort on Conderton Hill as well as this one. Remembered to visit the Bambury Stone and the King and Queen Stones this time. Kemerton Camp is a fantastic hillfort and the views across the vale of Severn to the Malverns are great.thesweetcheat09/06/2018

Muddy! Took the laid-back Elmley Castle route up, got lost on way down but all's well that ends well. Didn't make it over to the Tower as not enough daylight left. Wildlife: pheasants, longtailed tits, recent deer prints.geeoharee16/01/2016

From Great Comberton. Limited parking, so ended up parking on the roadside opposite a right of way which was convenient. (SO 953 418) lots or 'private estate no access' signs but the said ROW provides a route to the summit. Good views from summit.bowlesy19/10/2014
