11.20 Up ROW from SE then south along track with private sign to trig at SE side of small copse.vegibagger08/08/2019
Pedmore-War Memorial Athletic Ground(Stourbridge lost)-Ridgehill(via canal)-Hampton Valley Hill-Stourton(via canal)-Wollaston-Stourbridge GC-Pedmore. Visited both tops.campagvelocet27/04/2019
Parked by spot height on lane and walked up RoW, flies about as welcoming as the signs but no problems.heavyhorses21/08/2018
Thanks to David Evans - great route on footpaths for majority of way.Ramblingpaul14/08/2018
3rd tump of 6 on a 23 mile route from Wombourne to Hagley station in hot conditions, climbing Blackhill and Ridgehill, taking Lawnswood lane Sw, west on fp to A449, South then fp to track, west over canal and brook then South on track through Stowton gorse then direct climb to trig and summit, recording only 130m, took track to the North top and recorded 132m in between track and woodland edge so on this day North top is higher. 135m spot height in field is noticeably lower than the track. Onwards to Sheepwalks Hill via the Million (presume this refers to trees)...Dazingdale01/07/2018
Followed the tried and tested route described by David Evans. The route south from the public bridleway follows a private bridleway with various unwelcoming signs but saw no one on that section. Did meet an unobservant fox and an equally dopey and unusually dark fallow deer. Met a lady on the public bridleway and as I approached a squirrel ran in front of her, scaring her absolutely witless, much to both of our amusement. Very horsey area.Herbert Anchovy25/09/2017
From Gothersley Lane where there is some roadside parking. Up through Stourton Gorse, pretty woodland and out onto open pasture. Horses everywhere except summit field.Campbell Singer29/08/2017
Five Tump walk from Kinver to complete Staffordshire. Approached from west via bridleway then path south along edge of forest to trig. Descended east via Stourton Gorse.davidpettit8414/05/2017
From roadside parking with. The rookery. A really pleasant bridle path through mature pines and sandstone underfoot. Not sure why the Enville estate think their off bridleway area is so hazardous.. at Edge of woods followed path. One large house to avoid detection from. Trig is part flanked by brambles. A fine spot nonetheless. Very much the quiet neighbour of the busy edge.stig_nest22/04/2017
Parking: SO 85942 86552. Route: Follow bridleway to SO 84934 86631, then south on woodland edge to trig.David Evans25/03/2017

From the Chester Road to the west, along BW, then South through gate to follow track to the TrigPeterD23/10/2016
Gate at end of wood to ENE near 8595.8638 and easy track through Stourton Gorse (there's no gorse). At top cross farm track then path past horsey fields all way to trig, with no fences.Aye Jimmy14/10/2016
Parked at 859866. Along track to Gothersley Farm, then track south. When it drops down, take fp at bottom of hill west. Then over gate and across rough pasture to trig. just on other side of electric fence. Didn't risk climbing it to touch trig. , but only a metre away. Horses everywhere.ngthack06/12/2015
Parked to the E and there is a track that goes round the back of a big house and all the way to the trig.clivevilla22/09/2015
Parked at 859866 but could easily have driven to wide lane outside Gothersley Farm. Track to pleasant trig point a quagmire in places, completely wrecked by horses, which seem to be in every field in these partsGordonAdshead01/02/2015
trig by fence. Seems higher than spot height to the north.Adrian22/03/2014
