From FP to NE.Wycombe Wanderer28/01/2019
Wide verge parking W side of A595 (SD 2240 7509). Had hoped to drive to the mast, but worker bees had the access road blocked off. Took the RoW running due N, veering off 300m before the top on a bee-line. Remains of a large bonfire (beacon?) on the barrow (SD 2259 7601), which looks to be at least as high as the trig/HP.jonglew10/12/2018
2nd tump of 11 today on 32.2km loop from Askham station to Ulverston, climbing Park Knotts then descent to Lots road, taking a footpath curving around to Greenscoe farm but I took a gated track SE then at the jct NE, that leads to some clay pits and a huge trench with a stream trickling through it that i crossed over, with a dormant digger nearby. Climbed through western fringe of Cragg wood then profiled around the gorse to reach a fenceline, then direct up to the summit with trig. Descent to intersection of fences and footpath, briefly detouring to get a nice pic of a windswept tree then around the Transmission tower (as I couldnt locate the footpath) to cross the A595 then on footpath circling Housethwaite hill,heading for the Hagg Hills....Dazingdale31/03/2018
Up wet RoW from south to good vantage point on day of clear blue skies.Returned via dry aerial access road which starts by start of RoW.With Oscar.catman26/01/2018

There is a decent car park just North of the A590/A595 junction - and from there a public right of way, North, past the radio masts. Cows, young calves and a bull (long way away, not sure) in the field around the summit. So I kept to the right of way until past the summit and then turned and climbed East. Cows, with calves using the trig point as a scratching post meant a chilly 15 minutes wait until it was my turn to 'summit'M3WDD24/09/2016

From the SW passing mast and over the beacon mound on way to trig. Trig S.5373 in slight depression, slightly higher on all sides. Wet, windy, cold and thoroughly miserable day.Aye Jimmy02/05/2015
On footpath from NNE (tight parking on verge). After crossing into 2nd field head 1/2 L, towards the summit, and there is a gate (not visible from below) into the summit field. Ground close to trig is higher than beacon 100m SSW (man made anyway). Views to IoM.jimbloomer14/10/2014
I used the footpath from north for access to this lovely TuMP viewpoint. The stile is hidden by high bracken. Bagged the trig and tumulus on the high ground to south of it.Dugswell213/08/2014
