Parked tight against banking by bend on Charity Lane at 962731 - Up bridleway alongside edge of forest to high point of track - Over wire fence & wandered around the trees adjacent to the highest part of the track; high could be anywhere! (S)gerrybowes12/07/2019
From start of track to South. Only room for one car at a push. A quick up and back. Top is in the trees beyond the masts. Nothing to write home about.stig_nest14/04/2018
From Trentabank Reservoir - Ridgegate Reservoir - Lane towards Peak Chapel - Forest track to Ashstreetop - Hacked Way Lane - Charity Lane (Hill Summit) - Peak Chapel - through Macclesfield Forest back to Trentabank.briandavies31/12/2017
Parked naughtily on the path but I was only away for ten minutes. A tramp between and into trees gave no certainty as to the actual high pointColin Crawford09/06/2017
15 Mile walk taking in Tegg's Nose, Whitehills and ShutlingsloeDelta6813/05/2017
Great walking area - circular with Billinge and Brink.Forest quite open - mountain biking tracks.Top in forest, not clearing, IMO.carole engel19/04/2017

Parked in cp on bend of road to SE at Macclesfield Forest. Up a rocky land then dived into the forest and stomped around a bit on the flattish summit. Difficult to be more specific than 967727 as the forest is quite dense.clivevilla13/12/2016

Parked at bend on Charity Lane and followed the slush covered track. HP is in a clearing in the forest about 50 ms to the west of track.Campbell Singer09/11/2016
Up Charity Lane then over fence and into forest.John Eley23/10/2016
Easy access from track on NE side. Grass/ moss in forest break, mound in trees at SJ 96762 72652 felt higher but GPS disagreed and as already late for rendezvous didn't have time to investigate further.RichardM14/10/2016
Walked up Charity Lane from the NW and jumped over easy fence. Tracks suggested other 'Tumpers' have been there before me. Near the summit three lads threw there bikes over the fence to follow a probably unofficial but enjoyable mountain bike route through the forest. Solo.David Evans10/10/2016
Walked up from Walker Barn after doing Ely Brow, but their is room to park one car at top of Charity LaneMark Sims29/03/2016
Nice little 3 mile circular for 15 weeks pregnant L4HUF. Start and finish a Walker Barn through Macc Forrest, up the Forrest Bridleway and down Charity Lane. Snow and ice in parts but lovely Autumn afternoon.W111KYB22/11/2015
9/11 Drove up Charity lane and parked in entrance to field. Quick walk up bridle way to topFergalh04/05/2015
Walked up Charity lane from the north west and just over the fence to explore a few of the woodland hummocks.vegibagger29/09/2014
Parked at Forest Chapel car park. Quick there and back again after work on a hot, sunny afternoon.BobHancock12/06/2014
Tight parking at sharp bend on narrow lane from Walker Barn to Hardingland. Bridleway along edge of wood past Arqiva building. Decided that high point outside wood was at SJ 96776 72717. Over fence is a high point in dense trees at SJ 96770 72655, floor covered in needles; seems higher than the clearing.Aye Jimmy05/05/2014
Top is in clearing just inside the forest West of the track, new fencing to hop over. (no barbed wire)Anton01/04/2014
My second visit to this hill as it turns out I didn't visit the highest point first time round. Parked on a little car park not shown on the maps at the southern end of Charity Lane at Chapel House Farm. SJ 97412 72102. Things have changed since my last visit. The tracks gone much worse - don't contemplate driving up even in a 4x4! There has been some tree clearance too and now the formidable barbed wire fence has been replaced with an easier to get over specimen. As for the highest point over the fence - difficult to say for certain due to the trees. We visited all the options and settled for a little grassy hump adjacent to the lower branches of a spruce tree at SJ 96751 72675.David Gradwell22/12/2013
My first hill on a 14 mile walk starting from Bottom of the oven and up to Forest chapel and then onto Charity lane. Like others have said I got 477 and beyond just on the track but did climb over the gate and did a small circular walk and encountered an open area of forest and then turned into the trees and found a mound that could be the summit (coincides with position given on os map although there are probably several) Around 20 Rangerovers drived past on this track today!!Dazingdale08/12/2013
A bitter cold evening as night was closing in. Possible to park at the end of the track (NOT a road as shown on site map). From then along the unmade-up road to the top is about 10 minutes. A local out running told me that it was, in fact, called Charity Hillmoorsman29/01/2013
Jogged up lane from Walker Barn then rough trackChris Pearson12/07/2011
Car park at minor road junction at SJ 97766 71480. South to Shutlingsloe first then back to car park and used concessionary path through forest to road than track up to Whitehills. Settled for highest point of track at SJ 96780 72705. If anybody feels the need to climb over the formidable fence and thrash about in the forest, be my guest! Although I don't think it's necessary as, having just checked, my recorded GR coincides nicely with the 477m spot height on the 10k geograph map. 21/12/2013 update:- I have unticked this hill due to cast iron evidence on Old Maps of the highest point being a little way into the forest. 22/12/2013 see my latest log!David Gradwell21/03/2010
Big, bulky and the woods make it an easily identifiable hill from afar. Shame the woods block out views of Shutlingsloe though!Jake99419/03/2005
