From Witton Country Park car park. Wainwright Memorial then Billinge Hill. With J.B.ADT08/02/2018
2nd hill of 7 today on a route from Blackburn to Rishton, climbing to Revidge Hill first then along Revidge road onto Billinge end road then on attractive footpath all the way to the top passing mature beech trees and snow-covered rhododendrons. Ground at edge of bank appears just as high as the circular concrete plinth. Nice quiet feel, nobody else around. Followed various paths/tracks west then North, Nw to drop onto Billinge end road heading South towards Stanley Hill..... This hill completes Blackburn-with-Darwen u/a .Dazingdale09/12/2017
Several paths to the top. I imagine there would be a lovely view from the top if it wasn't hidden by the trees. Even in winter, when the trees are bare, the view is barely seeable.Alan Moore17/11/2017
Parked on Billinge Avenue, although there is a Witton Country Park parking area on Under Billinge Lane, which is nearer. From Under Billinge Lane, followed various paths and MTB trails to the top. With JT.Sprog08/10/2017
Popped up on the way to Manchester. Very quiet and leafy.jenx21/06/2017
With Jenx and Bryher from the West, parking for 3-4 cars in old lane that lead to CP. CP shown on maps to NE of hill now closed. Good strolling through the woods, lot of rhodi incursions, nice sandstone features. Rock outcrops on summit, view being slowly choked off by the growing trees. Good diversion en route to airportnordicstar21/06/2017

Parked in a lay-by on Under Billinge Lane at SD 657 279 (but on returning to the car notice a sign that implied but did not specifically say that this may not have been allowed, oh well). Followed the paths located on the west of the hill to reach the summit and followed paths east to descend. Paths weren't too steep at any point but were uneven and muddy, would defo recommend good footwear for this hill.Stormcrow19/09/2016
