Parked at 59910 83519 where no through road leaves the B4572, up through woods, along hedgeline then across sheep pasture to summit. Double bwf is not too bad if you climb it at the fence corner.clivevilla18/07/2019
Parked on B4572 at Nature reserve parking spot for 2 cars. Up through wood then field paths to double barbed wire fence about 4 ft below summit. To gain access to HP we walked to a gap between fences at SN 5955 8294. Low cloud and frequent showers- the best part of the walk was in the woods, despite some fly tipping.
