A very easy walk for a great reward. Afterwards, visit Clayworth church to see the murals. Only 5 minutes away.moorsman30/12/2017
Wow! Internet search says that it IS a natural mound that has, unsurprisingly, been used as a hill fort. Visibility about 1 mile. Bah!Wycombe Wanderer25/09/2017

View for effort ratio very high. Parked almost opposite in main street of pleasant village.Campbell Singer05/02/2016
a 2 minute walk from the car up the little grassy mound then WOW what a great view.steven ruffles03/02/2016
My last Notts tump, accompaniecd by my mum and my partner's Labradoodle, Lexi Rue. We parked near the Bluebell Inn on the High Street and walked along to the field enclosing the green mound. Lovely sunny day and great views. We then did a nice circular walk incorporating a short stretch of the Chesterfield canal.Dazingdale28/01/2016
Sign claims that it is thought to be a Bronze Age BarrowGordonAdshead16/12/2014
A strange hill indeed, looks relatively modern man-made but the Info Board near the steps below suggests it has been there at least since Anglo-Saxon and Roman times, possibly since Bronze Age.Aye Jimmy12/12/2014
Combined with walk along Chesterfield Canal from Drakeholes to West Stockwith. This must be amongst the best viewpoints in Notts. Agree with Adrian, looks like it's possibly man made. Great little hill. Lovely walk and fine weather.Richard Gunn09/11/2014
5 minute walk from the road. A beautiful little top.bolieve25/10/2014
looks like ancient mound but with great views. To the E. the quarry has a high point that is a candidate.Adrian15/03/2014
