|Eggs now £1.20 a half dozen.||ngthack||02/11/2018|
|Sunny lovely little hill and trig. Back in the mid 1980s I regularly visited a kennel with 40 Rottweilers owned by the lady who trained the dogs for the film The Omen (1976). Joan Blackmore also wrote A Dog Owner's Guide To The Rottweiler.||Dugswell2||03/12/2017|
|After approaching the farm house & Dugswell pacifying the rottweiller through the gate, no one came to investigate & we popped up to the top of the vacant field.||Smudge||03/12/2017|
|Confronted at the farm gate by little happy dog and then big rottweiller who looked vicious. Then friendly lady arrived and calmed big rw down. He's only nervous was her comment but to be honest I was less concerned about his psychological state than about my hand which he seemed to be eyeing up for afternoon tea.
She was very amenable to me going up the hill and was very pleased that I had had the courtesy to ask. I was then confronted by four beautiful horses which were extremely friendly and gentle, one which actually rubbed his nose on my face!
Superb viewpoint. We bought a dozen eggs for the lady's kindness.
Altogether, a pleasant experience after a scary start. Suggest others ask at farm.||Campbell Singer||11/10/2017|
|Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log:
Wasn't on the plan for today, then spotted it close to road, parked at farm gate, leapt over, then greeted with farmer's wife......moral, always ask they are usually lovely, this one was no exception, I wouldn't have got to the trig via my original route anyway as it has an electric fence!||thejackrustles||04/02/2016|
|Lovely views southwards. I went in from the road to the north which was a mistake as it meant climbing a bwf. Go in from the road to the w over a gate.||clivevilla||28/07/2015|
|Farmer fixing tractor in farmyard so asked permission, just as well because a farm hand shouted to me as I was going up the hill! Eggs are £1 for half a dozen...||Aye Jimmy||17/10/2014|
|Only access is via the farmyard or by sneaking up alongside an adjacent hedge. However, as I spotted that the farm sold eggs I bought half a dozen, asked if I could go up the hill .... and Bingo!||moorsman||18/06/2014|
