Parked at the end of the private lane to the south not knowing it was private. Headed west along duckboards when there was a far easier route straight up from the parking space. Met one of the residents of private lane near the top. Delightful man who advised of road status and showed me the quick route down.Campbell Singer29/07/2019
Cycled up, circular tour from Shrewsbury. Late evening sunshine.brandybordeaux15/05/2019
With Jo: from lower car park on a cloudy afternoon. Visited reservoir also. Extensive views to the south.amblerbob30/11/2018
An unexpected delight. Ridge top car park with extensive views E through S to W across the Severn valley. Natural high point probably the grass verge on N side of entrance to the car park. Ground on SE side of covered reservoir is a little higher but likely 'made-up'. Steep SE slope of Edge is outcropping conglomerate.RichardM30/11/2017
Busy spot today. Walked all round area, highest point seemed to be rocky ground in middle of summit carpark! Ground to WSW within gardens of Windmill House (with remains of windmill) and Kerdoon house may be higher but inaccessible. Outside the reservoir didn't feel as high.Aye Jimmy18/10/2017
Firstly this is a lovely area to walk with some variety. You know you are in a nice place when you see signs warning you about deer with calves. However why is there not more confusion about the high point? It appears that the gardens of the houses adjacent to the track our hire then the country park itself but the reservoir is surely the highest point. another candidate is opposite the road from the postbox. I had to sneak into the reservoir as there is a high barbed wire fence all around.tumpawumpa21/05/2017
A fantastic view point then had a look at the reservoir and the remains of the windmill. The bumpy old lane on the right is called the ‘Rope Walk’. Three hundred years ago flax and hemp rope made was made here and sold for ships, mines and farms all over the world. They’d stretch and twist the rope in long lines down the lane. They even had a windmill to help.Dugswell224/03/2017
Easy stroll from Bayston Hill on a perfect Autumn afternoon. Lovely view from summit.sooztops04/12/2016

You could just about do this as a drive by, but well worth the walk for some very good views.heavyhorses25/06/2016

I think i shall rename this one Lyth.. A stroll.. It was harder work driving along the access only track. Well, I needed to access the other end.stig_nest14/04/2016
Visited just as getting darkPeterD21/02/2016
Parked at lower car park and walked up to the other one as it didn't feel right driving to a summit. Visited reservoir.clivevilla10/02/2015
Car park for Lyth Hill Country Park near enough at summit. HP possibly along SE side of large grass-covered reservoir 40m N of car park.jonglew24/01/2015
