If you do drive-in, be advised that the road coming in from the east is a lot kinder to your suspension than the one from Dove Holes to the east. The farmer was surprised I had managed to get in the latter way. He confirmed it is a public road.Martin R03/12/2019
From the TP bus at Blackwell Road end, via Pennine BW, Tunstead and Smalldale. Gate at top now replaced with fence, and warning signs in place. Agree that the natural top is beside the southernmost of the earth-bunds.Moorponder20/08/2019
As part of 15k circular with Ed from Sparrowpit. Gautries Hill - Slitherstone Hill - Bradwell Moor - Bee Low.John Eley04/01/2019
Cloudy and grey walk uo after parking near the entrance to the donkey sanctuary. Visited the edge near where the trig used to be too.Dugswell210/01/2018
This high point is on grassy embankments on apparently disturbed ground next to Bee Low quarry. We walked up the track from the donkey-less donkey sanctuary but you could have driven on a new gravel track all the way to the road col. It is then a short hop over a gate to rough grass where you can pick your highpoint. Bright but cold.Denise 05/11/2017
Gravel road from Donkey Sanctury (but with no sign of any Donkeys) then over fence into small field of rough grass. Natural high point feels to be below the 2m high bank on the SW side of the field. Farmland and quarry views.RichardM05/11/2017
From NW.jimbloomer06/10/2017
From the Donkey Sanctuary I walked up the new realigned road to near top then crossed metal gate to access the summit. Very easy indeed. If you wish you can drive to the metal gate.Neil Haslewood17/07/2017

As moorsman. Good vehicle track all the way to a few mts from top accessed over gate.Campbell Singer05/01/2017
Followed a path from Peak Forest towards the Donkey Sanctuary. Headed north along the new quarry track, and was ignored by what I presume was the farmer fixing his fence, so the route must be OK to follow. The high point seemed to be right next to the quarry face about 50m or so from a metal gate.Wheelsy29/12/2016
Important notice! Due to quarry extensions the road beyone the Donkey Danctuary has been realigned. It now continues to the north and passes within 20m of the summit. You can now drive all the way to alongside a gate (locked and barred)of which the highest point is just behind. A doddle, no crossing farmland, scaling walls, just drive to it!. No prohibitive notices either.moorsman27/01/2016
Three new Tumps on 36km loop around Buxton today. Ascended via good track from Middle Barmoor Farm. Descended SE to join footpath north of donkey sanctuary.davidpettit8423/01/2016

1st of four hills from Doveholes to Hope using public transport. Train from Beeston to Matlock then Transpeak bus to Doveholes. Beautiful sunny day.From Doveholes i took footpaths climbing through the bumpy terrain eventually climbing onto plateaux and then on service track. Climbed over fence and scrambled up first artificial bank and from there i got my highest reading. Climbed up secondary banking and walked on top before scrambling down to then follow edge of quarried hill. Amazing views of rugged cliff face with trees hanging on precariously and the shimmering waters of Dove hole limestone quarry in the distance. Returned to track and then took fp through huge field-full of Friesians en_route to Sparrowpit where i had lunch at the 'Wanted Inn'.Dazingdale19/09/2015
4/12 Parked at 095784 at end of track to donkey sanctuary. Gravel track from here leads up along the side of the quarry, then a second track partially blocked off by boulders leads up to the top. Not sure if access is allowed up here, but no gates or keep out signsthe_adam30/07/2015
From layby on road to NNE, route not recommended. Public f/p sign at start, paths marked on map, but not obvious and no further clues. Walls, fences and across hay meadows. Accosted by two farm hands on top looking for 'the bugger who'd been cutting their barbed wire fences'! Not guilty guv...Aye Jimmy27/04/2014
