Parked at 39198 77822 near the cross roads and walked back along the road past the obvious gate, as it had barbed wire wrapped around the top, to the footpath and climbed up from there.clivevilla22/10/2019

A Christmas Morning Stroll from Grange Fell Golf Club over to Floodburgh to listen to the band and sing Christmas Carols. Lovely daynickywood125/12/2018
Parked on Fellside. a residential road (SD 3867 7706). RoW initially, for which I could find no access, so over the wall. Had to keep left of hillside gorse etc so veered further to the N than the direct line I'd intended. Fragments of limestone pavement at the top. Seemed to be another possible HP a short distance N at SD 38968 77339.jonglew02/12/2018
Parking to the N would have meant blocking a farmer's gate and possibly the narrow road, so instead I opted to park on the residential close to the SW and took the footpath, veering off to the summit after avoiding the worst of the hawthorn trees.Wheelsy25/07/2018
Convenient Tump baggers' parking spot by footpath to north. Cooler evening air for final fell of the day. Superb view of the Coniston fells.Wycombe Wanderer09/06/2018
3rd top of 6 on a 15.3km route from the Wraysholme crossing to Grange over Sands, climbing Humphrey Head and Applebury Hill then continuing through Allithwaite to climb over wall and head up beside wall to the trees, forced North due to dense canopy then profiling around to the top to explore all the Limestone pavement high points. Great Wee top!. Descent to corner of lane via gate then up taking Northerly lane past cemetary, heading for Hampsfell...Dazingdale02/04/2018
