From small car park TQ421102. No charges on a sunday. Up right of way across golf course then between fairways to the top. No issues. Sunday Night 19.30 with elizyanneGmacT08/07/2018
With K from Malling via nature reserve. Didn't realise there were access issues until we were on the hill; somewhat awkward with lots of active golfersAshley08/03/2018
6/11 From small car park up right of way to golf course then between fairways to the top. Great location for a golf course. Returned by clubhouse.SS09/02/2018
9/11M from the club house straight through the golf course.robertphillips05/11/2017
GMn Started near wind turbine, followed path to stile to golf course then short walk North.Idris28/10/2017
Crack of dawn on misty day from the west through the nature reserve. The apparent emergence of the track onto the golf course does not exist, leading to a gorse and bramble scramble to the highest corner of the access land. The summit can only be reached by climbing the fence topped by two rows of barbed wire. If using this route it would be easier to cross the fence further west where it is near the track.ijpowell26/10/2017
From Glyndebourne via nature reserve and then a dash up the hill across the golf course and out along the ridge to the East. Few golfers about despite drizzle.prwild26/10/2017
The third Marilyn of the evening. A very good stroll from Week Lane on the Glyndebourne road. I took the clear grass track forking off towards a gate at the E corner of the golf course. Spectacular sunset from the summit, and late enough that the only occupant of the golf course was a nice fox. Glow worms in the hedge on the way back.Gill04/07/2017
From Malling Hill nature reserve - evening so no golfers! On to Mount Caburn. Great views.twg2710/06/2017

From Glynde via Mount Caburn. No golfers on this dull overcast Bank Holiday Monday!Tony J29/05/2017
From nature reserve car park to the north. Up to the left of disused chalk quarries to hillside via gate. The over to golf course via style crossing fairway to trig point. Bizzare summit. 4/8 todayN.Morters13/04/2017
From South Malling. Two hours before dark on a very wet day, with visibility down under 100m, seemed an ideal time for this one. Unsurprisingly, I met no-one. Route and write-up at:
No nocturnal golfers so no problems.alda30/10/2016
The most interesting bit of the walk was at the start - Chapel Hill coming out of Lewes. Whole hill seemed to be covered by the golf course. At the trig point I was questioned by a golfer as to whether I had lost my bearings as I was 'a long way from any footpath'. I promised that I had not walked on any greens and retreated.ajd5820/10/2016
Walked across from Mount Caburn on a humid and hot day with Helen & Molly. 2 Clouded Yellows seen on the carpet of Majoram. Hopped over the style to get onto the golf course and up to the summit and trigpoint.JohRvs27/08/2016
Approached from the east and dashed across the fairway to the trig. Last hill of the day in a walk from Eastbourne to Lewes.Richard16/04/2016
Early start on this hill, having camped at Housedean Farm the previous night. As previously reported, the actual top is on a golf course, so I waited until the fairway was clear, climbed the stile onto the ninth fairway and made my way to the trig point by the eighth green.Cas-gwent05/04/2016
5/8 Fifth of Eight Hill bagging in south east on windy day (Norths Seat/Willingdon Hill/Wilmington Hill/Firle Beacon/Cliffe Hill/Newmarket Hill/Boulder Hill/Ditchling Beacon)Fergalh06/02/2016
Followed tracks on access land, stile onto golf course and easy access to trig. No golfers on a Sunday morning?rhalstead18/10/2015
From the small lay-by near the wind turbine just past Glynebourne. A pleasant walk up the farm track opposite and then over the lower slopes to the stile onto the golf course. No golfers today.Peterb12/10/2015

My 1100th Marilyn (but it went noticed). From car park in South Street, up Chapel Hill, and paths to summit. Very few golfers on a lovely summers day.Minto12/08/2015
On a fine summer's morning, walk up Chapel Hill in Lewes, taking first footpath through golf course due east, then sharp turn to west north west at Saxon Cross. With Rosalie, navigation easy, skylarks noisy and plentiful, only hazard flying golf balls!JOHNS24/06/2015
Very pleasant 5m circular walk from Glynde, picking up Mount Caburn on way back, site of an iron age fort.SteveSmith10/03/2015
Walked from Week Lane and on to golf course. Set up for SOTA activation near to the trig point.G4OBK (Phil)10/02/2015
From parking area at the top of Mill Road. Good paths.jimbloomer08/01/2015
Parked by the entrance to the wind turbine 400m NW of Glyndebourne (TQ44957 11027) SSW along the Week Lane bridleway to gate & stile, & then WNW along bridleway which passes a dry dew pond & above woodland before reaching another stile After crossing stile, the last 368yds is a Par 4 walk beside the fairway to the 8th green, alongside which lies the summit mound.

Parked at the end of Week Lane. Gates and stiles where required.tim74711/11/2014
Glynde to Lewes.Smudge01/11/2014
Walked up from Lewes through the golf course, which was busy as it was a fine sunday morning. Poor apart from one Brimstone butterfly. Afterwards we toured around Lewes which has many old building and found some with the local speciality, black mathmatical tiles.mindlessflogger24/08/2014
Up from the club house then went back down the public footpath close to the summit. Plenty of golfers, all fine if you a polite and stop for shots.simon and co05/08/2014
Up steep hill from Lewes and across golf course.AndrewFinnimore19/07/2014
Solo. From the wind turbine. Least invasive way is to stay on the right of the golf course on the way up, until near the summit.amswanston26/12/2013
from week lane - a very attractive though short walk, talked softly to the moo cows and passed with no issues - golfers were pleasant too. trig is by the 9th hole (think it was the 9th anyway!!stig_nest23/09/2013
With Mike and Jack from NW Glyndebourne. Just a couple of polite enquiries from golfers.squeegs26/08/2013
Parked at South Milling. Good access track around Milling hill to edge of course. Busy golfer day, warm and sunny day, not ideal! Crossed end of Open Access signed fence and found easy way up hidden track to fairway. Waited for a moment for play to pass and nipped across. Super views.nordicstar06/07/2013
Parked by wind turbine - Up track and path to golf course. No golfers too cold and windy!Bramley04/04/2013
Climbed from the northern edge of the opera house, no access difficulties from the golf course.JohnStoneham24/10/2012
From the east sidebolton29/08/2012
Parked just past Glyndebourne IOpera House outside the windturbine. Followed the bridleway bearing right round the wooded area. Over the stile in to the golf course, walked the fairways to avoid golfers - although probably off of the footpath. Trig point 5/10 min walk inside the golf course - next to flag.hmt100017/05/2012
Found a hill in Section 42. Descended lat towards floodlights of Glynebourne.Eddie03/04/2012
Snuck onto the golf under cover of very low cloud/mist which I thought would deter the golfers but didn't.Overthehilljill24/02/2012
Cloudy, slight drizzle, some mist, calm, mild, good views.iangalbraith08/11/2011
CUHWC South Downs Day Trip. Linear walk with Mark from Lewes all the way to Beachy Head over the area's Marilyns and HuMPs. We managed to avoid the golf balls...AGWilliamson22/05/2011
Possibly the best long day's walk in SE England? Lewes - Cliffe H - Glynde - Firle B - Wilmington H - Willingdon H - Beachy Head. Cliffe Hill didn't give us any problems, there were stiles onto the golf course from the access landMark Jackson22/05/2011
From near Glyndebourne. Pleasant walk up lane then golf course in thick fog. Incredibly, there was some golf going on - presumably exponents of 'extreme golfing'!Aye Jimmy13/12/2010
Parked at top of ridge NW of Glyndebourne and walked (30 min) along track and up broad ridge to summit on a golf course. Good view on fine day.dbb03/08/2010
With: hb; Walked up the ridge from the Glyndebourne road to the east. Apart from negotiating the golfers to get to the trigpoint we had no problems. Good little hill.Ian Baines04/07/2010
