Made the mistake of climbing from a layby to the east to avoid the lodge park. Don't!! Woodland walk in the lodge park leads to the top.citygent23/10/2014
And out of the window of Gartmore House this little wooded hill beckoned to me. Got up region 1 on my phone and amazed to find it not listed! Ha! It must be on the far west of region 26. Sure enough it is but amazed to find that I'm first logger. Delightful 15 minute hike up from the car park of the lodge park to the south, 15 mins up through mixed mainly beech and oak woodlandvegibagger18/10/2014
