Simple walk from Golf club car park to the communication towers. Brutalist architecture worthy of a post apocalyptic landscape.stooch13/02/2018
A day trip down to Birmingham to collect a speaker cabinet...and 15 new hills completed on the journey :) All done by the simplest methods already given by othersthe_adam27/01/2018
Solo expedition looking for a few county tops after performing with Brass band at Walsall Arboretum. This hilly area looks great from a distance! It is quite profound and looms over Birmingham dominantly. Parked at the Golf club. Asked some locals if I was going the right way for Turners hill, they seemed confused as to why I'd want to go up there, and warned me that it was all shut off. They said nearby Darby hill was higher. They were wrong, clearly, and the gate was wide open, despite the signs warning of radioactivity. Stood atop the highpoint just outside the fenced area. I felt very strange here, I think due to the radio waves. I've had this feeling before standing under pylon lines. I got a headache after standing here, which lasted for about half an hour.tumpawumpa24/09/2017
Parked by the hedge next to the entrance to the golf course car park on turners hill and walked up the tarmaced lane to the communications tower, found the first gate open so continued to the inner gate which was padlocked, a meter In front of the gate seems to be the highest point here I got the grid reference and the height according to OS Locate. Went into the paddock you pass on the left to walk around perimeter but could not find a higher spot good views of Birmingham though if your into that sort of thing.WAYNE ROWLETT17/07/2017
Drove through open gates to radio mast compound. There'should no sign to say you can't.ijpowell15/07/2017
Parked in golf club car park. Gates still open so entered the compound to the high point easily enough. You feel that something more could be done with this area which was a bit of a disappointment.Herbert Anchovy03/02/2017
Parked on road to golf course and walked up to compound through large unlocked gates.mart079727/12/2016
Frustratingly late in the gloom of dusk Missed the views from the roads driving up and down to the golf course clubhousevegibagger23/08/2016
Easy access from golf club, scruffy.rhalstead14/08/2016
Cycled up on Black Country high point tour. We decided high point was outside locked gate by golf course. Disappointing views , rather overgrown and scrubby - a missed opportunity for a pleasant high point , but good to be here after seeing it from afar so often.Denise 04/08/2016
Second hill on a cycle around the West Midlands. Much easier to access than imagined. Take road to golf course and continue past vehicle barrier towards concrete comms. tower. Through tall open gates which don't look as if they have been closed in a long while to high point by gate with radiation sign. Tower is on slightly lower ground. Trees limit views.RichardM04/08/2016
Stroll up from near golf clubBramley30/07/2016
Notable mainly for the commando-style raid under the barbed wire on one of the few hot days of the summer so far.edmundjohnson14/07/2016

Short walk up track. Gate open allowing access to summit by fence.PeterD22/05/2016
As previous loggers. Parked just outside the golf club and up barriered off lane. Past the bored horses and through open gate on to summit which is just before the buildings. I can only imagine how mind blowing the view would be from up the tower.stig_nest22/04/2016
Parked at golf club and strolled up the track and in to compound.Barbara Singer27/03/2016
I assume that the sign stating that police are aware of anti social behaviour occurring in this area does not refer to hill bagging although my wife might disagree. Scruffy summit at foot of impressive radio mast. Superb vantage point.Campbell Singer27/03/2016
Parked at the golf course road. A short walk to under the main tower. Open access through the gate.Play2End03/03/2016
Went at 7.30pm very dark, No one around. Great night views of city lights. Had a wee on the golf course. Highest point to the left of larger radio tower, Had to work trough some brambles to bag it. Will return soon to get a daylight view.Viroco24/02/2016
A triple CoU with Minnie. Cawney Hill-hard work & dissapointing, lots of brabmles. Sedgley Beacon, CoU dissapointing but the Beacon is a nice raised area for a walk & intersting little tower. Turners Hill nice walk up from canal through golf course, great views of the conurbation. loveley dry cold frosty morning.apricorum20/01/2016
From golf club, up road.ngthack29/11/2015
My 'local' - parked at bottom of Portway and walked up from there. Not the most attractive of summits, but quite pleasant out on the golf course, with great views of the Clent Hills.Stuzinho21/06/2015
Parked at Golf Club. Easy walk up tarmacked road up to transmitter station. Outer gates open and access available up to inner fence. On way down crossed field to high points on N and W of station. Good weather, clear views.Argentum6625/05/2015

Walked up road next to golf club until met locked gates. Nice radiation sign.electricratman19/10/2014
Parked by barrier on access road next to Golf Club Up road for about 100m and then cut across corner of pony field Climbed over a 'collapsed' section of the wire-mesh fence and then battled through the undergrowth to summit. Shorts not advised! (Solo)gerrybowes03/08/2014
Peered through the locked gates close to the large tower.bolton05/06/2014
Cloudy and rainy. Parked near to Dudley Golf course. Very short walk to hill top- big fences and gates bar you from actually standing on the top due to some sort of aerial/power station there.andyhudson10/05/2014
climbed with dave on the way to athlethicsmr bounce29/06/2013
#2 of 3 today. As close as we could get along closed-off Turner's Hill that otherwise only goes to another golf course. Security fencing seems to have been upgraded since earlier logs.Newton Maximus16/11/2012
Visited while doing several county tops in the area, parked at the golf club, scruffy place but had a good explore.magirob06/11/2012
Bill Moseley together with Graham & Karen Fewtrell 'Bagged' for the 2012 Morris Lubricants County Top Challenge for the TCT. Thanks to Dobbin for his support role in the photographs.morrislube06/10/2012
Meg an me, did this one by train. Got off at port Dudley and walked along canal. Make sure you get the correct arial mast as we did an early photo at the wrong point then realised we were a mile off. The other mast had better viewsRoland Brooks02/09/2012

Smile as you trespass - you're on 24 hr video surveillance! Shame my 'home county' top is such a dreadful despoiled piece of land.Happy 100th birthday to AW todaysignyred21/01/2007
Bagged in darkness - views of Birmingham by night much better than by day! Had to navigate back down using phone and GPS backlights - needless to say got stung and scratched quite badly as we wandered off route!wheresthepath13/11/2004
