Revisit, this time from British Camp carpark via the reservoir. A fine September day with excellent views to the Black Mountains, Clee Hills and Cotswolds. Excellent hillfort, had a proper look at the eastern section that I didn't visit last time.thesweetcheat02/09/2017
An OTT shelter near the summit - but erected for the right reasons.summitter25/08/2017
From Hollybush car park up good path. A passive friendly dog was attacked by a belligerent Jack Russell at summit. The stupid owner had left his little dog off the lead and he claimed he hadn't seen the other dog. Five minutes later he had his dog off the lead again when it attacked another dog. Inconsiderate idiot.Campbell Singer15/08/2017
