The briefest of detours when doing Cold Ashton to Lansdown on the Cotswold Way.milimana10/11/2019
Maverick Somerset Long course (25km & 650vm)Fionalevey07/09/2019
Followed Avon Fire Brigade track to HQ front gates. Agree with DanMaisieBex that over gate to left, bend in track is higher. Very overgrown knoll maybe 80m to ESE seems higher again (easiest to go back down lane to approach this). Continued along Cotswold Way to trig point.Aye Jimmy07/07/2019
Drove up the road following a family trip to Bath.summitter25/08/2018
From the monument car park. Enjoyable circuit of the fire station gates, high point of track beyond gate opposite, the knoll 20-30 yards ESE - which, regrettably, seems higher -, the trig point/view point and Sir Bevill Grenville's monumentNick Down124/08/2018
On a glorious day of sunshine, views around are marvellous.EricMoore30/07/2018
From lay by top by entrance gates.Bramley24/07/2018
Parked at lay-by near the Civil War memorial and where the Cotswold Way crosses the road. Walk along Cotswold Way to top. A little further along CW there is a fabulous view over Bristol and South Glos.jedthehumanoid23/05/2018
From the monument car park on a beautiful morning. Could have driven along if so inclined.Campbell Singer17/11/2017
From the monument car park across very busy road and along tarmac track to the gate.Barbara Singer17/11/2017
Parked up at lay by close to civil war monument which I visited first. Then crossed the road and walked to the Fire Service HQ gates. Got a great sighting of two Roe Deer on the way back to the car!Gerry the Ranger08/09/2017
Quick park up and stroll with Russ. There's a civil war monument the other side of the road with some shockingly poor poetry on it.Richard07/05/2017
Parked up in a layby to the S ( very busy for a Sunday ) & then walked in via the Avon F&RS track. HP would seem to be ST71738 70258 as the track which leads away from the fire service gateway is certainly higher. Also did the trig.DanMaisieBex04/12/2016

Parked in layby at end of driveway. You have to hop over a bwf to the left into a brambly bit just before the gates.clivevilla26/08/2016
With the dog and my daughter, parked in layby then walked to monument (Britains oldist war monument 1720 for 1643 battle), then back over road to fire brigades gate and on to overgrown trig point and round to get good view between trees, then back to car.Walkingthedog18/08/2016

Simple walk from Civil war battle site car parkFergalh27/11/2014
Quick stop on last leg of Cotswold Way, which also takes in the trig point. Nice to have some firm ground underfoot as most of the 10 miles between Cold Ashton and Bath was horrible mud. Decent fort at North Stoke to visit as well.thesweetcheat28/12/2013

As JL.destaylor12/11/2009
Quite informative information trail from the trig to the monument about the civil war battle that took place there. Lots of blackberries on Cotswold Way path that runs parallel to the access road. Good views, Wales is possible but to cloudy to tell forPepandJen18/09/2009

Summit is near the gate also some interesting bumps in the field although its covered in nettles .You can only do this top justice by heading for the trig pillar a nice piece of history here.hodder15/07/2009
Easy from the road and then on to the trigpoint.asbown10/06/2009
Climbed up with the bairn from the road to the north and then went on to the trig. Must also have come near here when I did the Cotswold Way with school in the late 80s.Herbert Anchovy29/05/2009
Agree high point is near gate but you have to walk to the trig as well don't you? Interesting battle site nearby.signyred07/11/2008
Whilst doing Cotswold Way with AndyPeterD15/09/2008
What cold weather for Easter. Did this top as a family before going to trig point. Heigh point could be 5m south, just over the 5 bar gate, 10m short of Fire HQ.Father Ted21/03/2008
