First attempt from Pedmore Lane (to NW) via Monarchs Way FP - aborted - yards of mud in the middle of the path and brambles either side. Tried again from Pedmore La to the NE, limbo under fallen trees, and a cut across the field to avoid further muddiness when I reached the Monarch's Way. A couple of collapsed bw fences helped.johnkenyon25/01/2020
From SO 9220 8225. Took the RoW to the Obelisk (trig intersected stn) first as light almost gone and wanted to snap it. Then across to the high point; an understorey of low bramble/briar doing its best to lay me sprawling in the dusk! Only thing of interest in the rapidly failing light was the huge urban sprawl of Greater Birmingham with a million (or more) points of light.jonglew18/12/2019
From side of road through very boggy field and into the woods, which were much drier and had some decent paths. Visited obelisk and then on to what looked like the top. Nothing special about this one.Stuzinho05/10/2019
Dry, sunny day but really struggled up the path between the two fences/fields. Muddiest hill I've ever come across. Like quicksand - could barely lift my feet. Found another path down through the woods that was 1000 times easier. Both lead from/to Pedmore Lane.sjb02/03/2019
Solo walk from Hagley station on a bright February day. The hillfort is very good, although there's sadly no access to the northwestern ramparts. From here I walked down into Stourbridge, the path from the northeast corner down between fences is a bit of a muddy nightmare though.thesweetcheat09/02/2019
Parking a bit problematic to SE with new building works. Parked to NW in Pedmore Hall Lane SO 91308 82132. Monarchs Way to wood, then good path through wood leads close to summit.David Evans04/02/2019
Parked on a road of houses and crossed a field then up muddy path between wire fences. Did myself a favour and walked down the grassy field on the way back.KC07/12/2018
Carried on to summit after visiting obeliskcjo10/11/2018
Parked at SO914822 and followed RoW towards Obelisk and then followed path up the tree line. (with Lyn)heavyhorses26/09/2018
1st of 9 tops on a traverse from Stourbridge Junction to Longbridge veering off Monarch's Way to walk past Hawthorn trees, crossing over bw fence to reach field and high point next to hedge. Climbed over fence and explored area within the woodland before taking route through trees and then track with remnants of fortifications still extant. Rejoined Monarch's Way with brief detour to the Obelisk, that has the graffiti Who put Bella in the Wych Elm. It refers to the skeletonised remains of a woman found in a Wych Elm in 1943 by four boys who were trespassing in Hagley Woods. The mystery of her death still remains unsolved. Continuation route to the 'Four Stones'.. This completes Dudley u/a!Dazingdale01/09/2018
From Stourbridge Jct Station then on to The Four Stones and Walton hill and Romsley Hill Very muddy with some residual snow.NormanW07/03/2018
F/p from SO 9220.8225 to NNW leads muddily to Monarch's Way, even muddier. Up this to col with gate, quick visit to obelisk, then up through wood to top.Aye Jimmy17/02/2018
Stourbridge Junction stn - Wychbury Hill - The Four Stones - Walton Hill - Romsley Hill - Chapman's Hill - Beacon Hill - Rednal Hill - N Top - Longbridge station. What a great five-hour walk! All summits accessible, great views.Mark Jackson04/11/2017
With Sail & Danu. Highest point seems to be in woods but GR puts it in nettle field.Dangerous Dave02/09/2017
Marilyn and Tump bagging by train. Hagley station is very well placed for a nice walk over Wychbury Hill using Monarch's way, then on via Hagley Hill Farm and the NT visitor centre (yuk) to the Four Stones, and then on to Walton Hill from the north side. West-ish off Walton Hill to the upper lake, then back up over Four Stones, and the North Worcestershire path towards the station. Mainly a nice walk along surprisingly steep sided ridges; the interactions with the A456 were deeply unpleasant though.Gill24/08/2017
Parked just off roundabout on verge on minor rd.mart079709/08/2017
Nice walk form ROW to NW up to col then right on path through woods. Pleasant enough.Mark Sims12/07/2017
Parked in gateway adjacent to A456 roundabout. Careful to leave sufficient access although it was after 19.00. Hp seems to be in nettle field next to wood.Campbell Singer12/07/2017
From estate to NW, much better than expected.rhalstead07/05/2017
Nice enough walk from the NW to top on boundary between woodland and pasture.Herbert Anchovy04/04/2017
Parked in layby at SO927818. Up along RoW from roundabout, past the Obelisk. Back along tree line to the car. Interesting hill fort.BobHancock09/03/2017
Walked up from Pedmore with two BWFs to climb.Dugswell220/01/2017
Afterthought after Clent Hills. Another nice little wood.Wycombe Wanderer24/12/2016
Followed Monarch's way from Pedmore.Ramblingpaul23/05/2016
From top end of monument way (think thats what it was called.) One of the nicer Brum region tops. Following the recent dry spell I managed to get by with trainers. Woods currently smelling divine under a carpet of bluebells. Top has an earthworky feel about it though the very summit seems natural. So anyway, who put Bella in the wytch elm?stig_nest22/04/2016
From North on FP, muddy track drying out nicely. HP near fence.PeterD20/03/2016
7th Tump on walk from Barnt Green to Lye, a recommended and surprisingly rural walk. Clear crisp day and superb views to the S through W to N. Sun setting so down to Lye for a pint and train home. Easy access to hilltop lots of paths.RichardM24/02/2016
First Hill of my new hobby. Most local to my house. Parked by the lights at Hagley and walked up Monument Road past some nice cottages. Steep and muddy. Great views up by the monument. weather misty but still good views of local Hills and over Stourbridge and Brierly Hill. Had to go into the woods to bag the highest point 224mViroco24/01/2016
Parked on Pedmore Lane. Up very muddy Monarch's Way & into wood.ngthack29/11/2015
Parked just off main road at SO915810 and walked up Monument Lane, Monarch's Way and into wood. Highest point seems to be northern edge of wood.milimana23/08/2015
After work, from Hagley Station-Walton Hill- Adams Hills- St Kenelms Church -Adams Hill- Wychbury Hill. Superb views.gondegal08/07/2015
As arranc but wished I had opted for boots and over trousers to negotiate very muddy footpath.GordonAdshead22/01/2015
Park on Pedmore Lane at 922822. Walk up on signed paths. 11.20.arranc20/01/2015
From NW, also visited the obelisk (a trig - intersected station)RHW31/08/2014
Barnt Green to Stourbridge Junction.Smudge19/01/2014
Parked in the lane to SE just off the roundabout. Walked up past the obelisk, then on path through the woods and left over fence along the back side of the woods and steeply up a short bank. The top is in a bed of nettles and there are a couple of barbed wire fences en route.clivevilla25/06/2013

Done on Monarch's Way.Adrian31/03/2012
Have walked and run on this hill more than any other, but mostly stayed away from the summit which seems to be amid nettles.campagvelocet27/06/2011
