From Dumbelton via pleasant parkland. Busy with people doing estate management tasks; burning brash on the track I intended to use. Thought about asking permission but in the end, sneaked up from the S. From 00873430 the way that appears clear even on the 1/50K map is. I didn't even have to touch any fence. Took my chance with the W ridge down- this is really attractive and the views in front were excellent; hedgerow and planted cover seemed admirable with lots of native shrubs. OK- estate workers presumably all having lunch. Return by Perrots Hill/ Field Farm bridleway- all adds up to 4 miles and 2h.pwheeler13/03/2017
Detour from approx SP008343 whilst walking the Ashton-under-Hill to Winchcombe section of the old Wychavon Way. (The way was re-routed in 2012 and now ends in Broadway instead). Through one pheasent pen gate and by field edge to gate at summit. Decent views south.milimana24/07/2016
From The Warren, across col then up through open woodland with mesh fences and pheasant pens all looking a bit derelict and unused. Very fine views S to Nottingham Hill and Cleeve Hill from field on W side of summit. Green fields and pale blue skies in soft evening light. Down W side of hill to bridleway via gate open.RichardM10/02/2016
From Alderton on BW, then track and side o field to top.PeterD13/12/2015

The whole of Alderton Hill is a pheasant nursery! Trespass required to get anywhere near the summitjonglew18/08/2012
I parked at Dumbleton Hotel and over to this one - it is a tresspassy one and there is a "no right of way" on the gate leading to the hill. I skirted round the hill to the left and therefore did not see the sign ;) - it is a steep climb up with no defined path - Pillar is in good condition and is located within a group of young beech trees, and surrounded in lots of nettles - some good views to be had from the top. I came down the North side, with hindsight this would of been an easier way up too.griefmiester08/06/2012
Parked in Alderton and made via paths to within 400m of the top. Had to ignore very prominent no right of way signs to bag this hill by following path passed no entry sign then up field edge to hole in pheasant fence and no problem bagging top really.Dugswell205/03/2012
Parked on main road. Followed path near school to the junct with the Wychavon Way then track to top 12:10chrisbien05/12/2011
The dumb-blonde estate clearly don't want you to go there. It is hard to sneak when flocks of pheasants fly up and squawk as you pass.Martin R20/08/2011
ascended via the excellent bridleway at so 99897 33397, which takes you to main pathway on the hill. Large amount of fencing around with numerous pheasants present.hodder02/05/2011
From Alderton. Lots of pheasants.destaylor19/09/2010
Followed private road from Dumbleton and then headed through the woods/phesant pens to the gate which seems to be positioned at the highest point. Fortunately no game keepers about today!Herbert Anchovy06/08/2010

Was my last English sub-Marilyn before later discovery of Moneylaws. End of a 3 day w/e south bagging sub-marilyns to and from the IOW reached by hovercraft and buses linking top bagging.Chris Pearson30/10/2002
Parked in Alderton and made via paths to within 400m of the top. Had to ignore very prominent no right of way signs to bag this hill. Just before reaching the car the rain came down great.garyhoney17/03/2002
pleasant parkland plod, pleasant well-kept landscape in view. 017355, private rd to Hill Fm then pasture edge to summit @203RHW02/04/2000
Done with trig long before anyone else. Don't recall trouble with pheasant farm and privacy issues back then that folk talk of now.vegibagger30/08/1998
