Parked by the gate on the road to the west. I did block the gate but the return trip was complete within 14 mins, so didn't feel too guilty.DC11main12/04/2017
From the west, where you can park on the verge and walk up some rough grassland towards the clump of trees. Agree top appeared somewhere near the trig. Seemed a lovely hill in early spring sunshine with the bonus of three brown hares and a large herd of fallow deer.Herbert Anchovy17/03/2016
Approach from FP to east across fieldPeterD07/06/2015
From field gate on minor road due W of hill. Pleasant walk as sun was breaking through the Cotswold gloom. Broad flat hill top, not obvious for precise summit point; maybe at trig pillar.jonglew04/09/2014
