Hednesford Hill from pub C.P. on Littleworth road Wimblebury. Then walked down Wimblebury road to public footpath and up to Wimblebury Hill.mart079727/12/2018
6th hill of 8 on a 26.9km route from Rugeley to Hednesford station, climbing Stile Cop, Upper Cliff, Rawnsley Hills, Castle Ring and Wimblebury Hill, descending West on fp then following John Road then Longacres to reach open access land and unofficial path upto the circular track. Summit overgrown with broom and gorse, recording 235m @ SK 01741 12264 in between dead broom, 233m @ SK 01745 12268. I took the opportunity to also explore the embankment blocking access/view to the Raceway to the West, after spending a lot of time squirming through dense Holly i recorded 234m @ SK 01724 12265 (a tad lower than the recorded summit). Continuation on footpath around veering off on fp Nnw before heading N on fp to Rawnsley road then on Bradbury Lane heading for Badger's Hills...Dazingdale25/11/2018
