Nice to be able to cycle right up the track to make this a quick, easy one.Alex C23/10/2018
Up the track and back before the fellow passengers finished their fags. The house that's set back complained to smokers that the gravel layby is private land.Eddie20/10/2018
Parked in loose stone layby at SJ 96292 47308 - Up access track to enclosed reservoir & only just managed to squeeze through the railings by the hawthorn tree near NW corner. Friendly farmer carrying out a lot of earthworks in order to improve access to his fields; hes happy for walkers to use the track across his land. (S)gerrybowes19/09/2018
Managed to find a parking spot opposite the RoW to the S of the hill, although I was questioned by a house owner about what I was doing there. Couldn't locate the start of the RoW in the hedgerow so went through the driveway entrance just to the W and followed the reservoir access track up through a field of cows. Strangely a goat was on guard inside the compound.Wheelsy02/08/2018
Hardest thing was squeezing through the gap in the railings at the far side of the reservoir. Over the A52 for easy to approach but awkward to access trig point.tomandivy08/04/2018
4th log of 8 today on a 21.7 mile route from Longton to Blythe Bridge station via Park Hall Hill and its former top then over to Wetley Moor, dropping down to the road, veering off at Cellar Head onto A520 briefly before taking footpath called Abbey Road, i veered off this to go through a gate then steeply up through some rhododendron squeezed copse to reach the ridge and from there easily upto to the reservoir and the summit. I headed SE to intercept a footpath leading to the A522, continuing South onto Dairyhouse Lane, heading for Cheadle Park.Dazingdale27/01/2018
From the road. Along water compound access track. Walked the perimeter then accessed what appeared to be the high point at the NE end of the resr.jonglew24/01/2018
Easy enough along a track from the main road - some nice views.twg2726/12/2017
Parked in A52 layby near March Lane. Busy road. ROW is very boggy, so stuck to the track up to reservoir. Summit to NW. 21m ascent.RoguePulsar18/12/2017
Up track, and round to NW corner. Two places where one vertical piece of fence is missing and those of us who have a slim build can slip through. Those with a more stout stature might struggle!PGCE22/11/2017
Adderley Green to Cellarhead. Wasn't sure that I had enough time for this summit but managed a rapid stomp up to the top of the reservoir etc. and back down to bus stop with just enough leeway to change footwear.Smudge05/02/2017
Parked in lay-by at SJ963473. Boggy field to reservoir. Just about squeezed through railings to enter compound by rhododendrons. With Julie and Polly the dog.David Evans05/11/2016
Five Tump loop from Cheadle: Cheadle Park, Callow Hill, Blakeley Bank, Overmoor, Counslow Hill. Up reservoir track then over fence at NW corner as described by others. Descended SE across field to footpath.davidpettit8408/10/2016
With K. Don't trust the stile! Sent me flying as wasn't secured on far side. Very amusing. Had hoped to bag Ashley Heath but ran out of time - my band played gig in Stoke in evening.Ashley15/04/2016
Miserable lunchtime trudge to back of res compound.stig_nest21/12/2015

As others - parked on layby on A52 at SJ 96293 47313. Highest natural land 15m inside compound fence to north at SJ 96516 47733. (288m spot height on geograph) Gap in fence near this point.David Gradwell28/03/2015
From main road as everybody else.ngthack25/03/2015
From main road, layby opposite gate. Catlle were in the field behind the reservoir but we didn't bother each other. Used the gap in the fence but somebody with a bigger chest wouldn't fit through.clivevilla30/10/2013
The animals in the nearby fields are a little too friendly!JohnStoneham10/03/2013
Way back north. Easy parking by track / FP entrance, and verge to walk down. Not difficult as some have said! Hard bit was the cattle in very soggy field, with resident bull. Warm muggy day. Jumped fence and circuited bull to get back to start pt.nordicstar26/07/2012
Parked in same place as Marktrangrove and agree the A52 is a dangerous route in. Walked up to resevoir compound and was about to go around edge to east when I spotted the farmer. Instead, I hopped over the railings ar the front.Father Ted24/03/2012
Highest point is inside the reservoir compound around the back of the track up from the road. There is a missing iron paling around the back that you can squeeze though. Most draggy sheep in the world that clicked at they walked.simon and co16/03/2012
Followed track upto reservoir befor walkjng back crossing the road and doing the trig.heavyhorses26/12/2011
Parked in small lay-by on lane connecting A52 with A522 at SJ969472 and walked N to take RoW to near summit. Crossed pasture and barbed wire fence to reach it. Returned by track S and A52 - not recommended as road busy with no verges.marktrengove24/11/2011
Short walk from gravelly layby on A52 along track. Covered reservoir and mast.Aye Jimmy11/09/2011
Bagged after a walk from my mate's house in Cheddleton, came round the back of the road from Wetley Rocks. Hopped the wall, then hopped back, and carried on to Blythe Bridge.DanHolme01/08/2011
Schools out for summer. Rough pasture and fence away from ROW. made a circuit by walking a triangle along both main roads -not nice -busyChris Pearson12/07/2011
From crossroads of A52 and minor road SW of hill. adrianturner21/05/2011
Parked on A522. Used ROW.chrisbien10/04/2011
Easy stroll across field from A52. Railings can be climbed over along north side where they step up and down. Reservoir 3m high so SubMarilyn status very dubious.chriswatson05/04/2011
From A52. Climbed over reservoir fence in NW corner, where one section is lower.malcorbett28/03/2011
Parking for 1 car near Field View on A52 opposite access footpath into field of Belted Galloway cattle on a cool (-8 degrees C) sunny Sunday morning. Jumped fence and onto top of covered resevoir.Dugswell228/11/2010
Park by busy A52. On signed path through cows to a raised reservoir with mast and fence. 14.15. Steak dinner and champagne for our wedding anniversary.arranc10/10/2010
Covered reservoir. Old railing fence around it.destaylor29/01/2009
