With Sal, nice spring day on way to Lakes for orienteering at Stickle Pikedavechaffey17/05/2019
Quick bag from Chelmorton, fairly steep pull up grass to summit tumuli. Earlier that day did a 8 mile walk re-bagging Black Edge and Combs Head. Afterwards bagged nearby Sough Top trig. High cloud and warmish all day.DanTrig08/04/2018
Mild and clear day for a steep walk to bag both tumuli after parking below the church.Dugswell211/01/2018
Good parking in Senners Lane SK 11229 70949. ROW to access land, then straight up to (both) summits. On return I had to vault over the field gate to avoid very frisky cattle.David Evans21/05/2017
20k romp up Chelmorton Low, Nether Low, along Deep Dale and up Cow Low. Along the beautiful Wye Dale and Chee Dale then up Priestcliffe Low and back to car on Old Coalpit Lane. Fantastic limestone scenery, with Mart.John Eley12/03/2017
Ample parking at entrance to Senner's Lane. Steep but straightforward. One bwf wf to cross but could have been avoided if I had taken the alternative path to the west.Campbell Singer14/12/2016
Straight up off ROW with easy parking on corner of A road to north west.Mark Sims21/02/2016
Easy parking alongside Chelmorton church (alt 1213ft). No difficulty with route finding .... just head upwards after the bridlegate! 0.55 miles return.moorsman29/01/2016
4/15 Fourth of fifteen on a wet and very windy day (Fir Hill/Foredales Head/Bee Low/Chelmorton Low/Nether Low/Dow Low (Brier Low)/High Wheeldon/Revidge/Merryton Low/Wolfscote Hill/Wetton Hill/High Edge/Upper Edge/Thirkelow Rocks/Sir William Hill)Fergalh29/11/2015
Parked by church in Chelmorton. LH of two gates onto access land. Fairly steep at first then long grass to couple of tumuli on top. The most easterly seemed highest. Presumably for World Cup, SW side of hill has ENGLAND and St George's flag (not at half-mast!) in 'White Horse' sized letters visible from miles away.Aye Jimmy22/06/2014
Parked SK112709 end of track next to stile.Anton19/02/2014
Branched off from the Pennine bridleway at Sk121705. Two bridleways a few metres apart converge near the church. A spring nearby Called Bank pit water gurgles merry. I took the gate onto access land next to large sycamore with rope atyre dangling. I followed the bridleway for about 100 m and then climbed straight to the top. TWO tumulii compete for the high ground. NICE views over Chelmorton and the limestone landscape.Dazingdale09/11/2013
Used to live in a caravan near here but never climbed it, so one day parked in the village and mooched to the top, where someone has since written ENGLAND in stones! Some nice mines, and apparently the dowsing is good amongst the tumuli.DanHolme26/04/2009
From Monyash via Flagg with a return along Highstool Lane. Highest point on a prominent east-west ridge.Jake99417/04/2006
Finished D of E work at Thorbridge so went bagging 400m tops around Buxton. Beautiful colours and light.Chris Pearson21/08/2003
