Bagged on a Long Mynd day walk with Lindsey. Summit and trig were an out-and-back diversion while passing along The Portway. Route was from Plowden to Woolstaston; just over 8 miles with 1270 feet ascent. A blustery overcast day with several heavy showers (see also 28/06/2020 log for Pole Bank).Skip28/06/2020

Parked outside gliding club and followed path up to high pointLaura.W19/05/2016
Large parking area alongside the road before the entrance to the gliding club. From here it is a quick walk to the summit. 30 minutes return or less. If you cut off on the path which claims it is not a right of way you save doing two sides of a triangle. Furthermore, the path is across open moorland!moorsman21/04/2016
Easy stroll from gliding club entrance. Super views into Wales.stig_nest13/04/2016
