Parked at a little used field gate NY 5320 4816. Track leads up, along the side of the valley, then field boundary to the trig pillar (King Harrys Common), which may be the HP. Walked on a further 100m to a large old beech tree, which is also a contender for the HP spot.jonglew23/05/2018

From SW at sharp bend in road. Gate then green track leads pleasantly up side of glen. At top enter wood or edge of crop field, continue in same line to trig. Other HP's some way to S in same field, or over wall in nearby field by small concrete water tank.Aye Jimmy31/10/2015
