1st hill of only 2 today on the Penultimate leg of my Offas dyke walk from Monmouth to Chepstow. Climbed in misty conditions making the woods mysterious and atmospheric.Highest point close to the white building. Heard some strange sounds in the nearby woods which i think may be Wild Boar!!Dazingdale21/10/2016

Large lay-by on the A4136 at SO 53810 12400. Walked WNW along the main road then carried on in same direction on minor road. At the sharp bend I turned left with the road but I'd recommend other folk to carry straight on here along the bridleway and climb the hill via the next public footpath on the left. I had trouble finding the start of the public footpath through the houses because how it is depicted on the 25k map is a total nonsense.David Gradwell23/10/2009
From Redbrook up Offa's Dyke to the top then over to Buck Stone and back. A fantastic viewpoint and place to idle on a warm day. Excellent sandwiches from the newsagent in Redbrook too.Jake99408/09/2009
