From the village, RoW through middle of a beet field, then short distance across another beet field, this time no RoW.jonglew19/11/2018
From Upper Wardington- good paths, marked, stiles. A fence/hedge shown on 1/25K OS maps no longer exists and to get to the HP I walked from the NW where I could follow farm vehicle tracks and not trample any of the growing crop. The fp running just below the HP and ridge on the SW side had very good views. Sunny and becoming hot.pwheeler25/06/2018

My 10th Northants tump of the day and my 500th for the year, on a car tour exploration of Northants from Nottingham with my girlfriend driving. We visited Naseby Hill, Honey Hill, Ashby Grange Hill, Borough, Newnham, Everdon, Waydale, Woodford and Thenford before parking up in the village. I took the footpath heading EnE to reach the edge of the field and then up to the vague summit. I spent about 5 minutes circling around, before descending to footpath on muddy track beside field edge heading Nw then took the Battlefield trail back into the village. Without being spectacular, Northants has good walking trails and pleasant rolling countryside!Dazingdale30/12/2017

From village on FP, along track and then to HP in fieldPeterD05/11/2017
Had a walk whilst at Fairport Convention's 50th Anniversary Cropedy Festival. Ended up on this mounded field in Oxfordshire.summitter12/08/2017
From sleepy village took left hand track (Jurassic Way, but indistinct) to trees on skyline, over stile then SE along field edge. This time summit field had been cropped. Just about to set off into middle of field when enormous combine harvester (New Holland C9.90) came over the horizon. Cutter at front must have been 10-12m wide. Took pictures and waited till it had passed.Aye Jimmy11/08/2017
Short circular route up from Cropredy village during Fairport Convention's 50th anniversary festival.Archie10/08/2017
Walked up from village to flat harvested field.Dugswell206/08/2017
Walked from Thenfield Hill via bridleway and then dropped down into pretty village of Wardington where there was little sign of life. Bus back to Banbury stationtrimarc227/04/2017
A chance to read up on the complicated War of The Roses (between the Houses of York & Lancaster) as one of the 19 battles - Edgecote happened on this hill in 1469. Seems that two opposing groups of reinforcements happened upon each other here. The resullt of the battle being that Edward IV temporarily lost his crown as the Earl of Warwick(The Kingmaker) won. It was apparently Edward's fault for upsetting Warwick by marrying a commoner - Elizabeth Woodville. BUT Edward soon had the throne back under a deal. He was one of five different rulers in only 25 years, 3 of who were killed or executed by their rivals. Soon to follow Edward's natural death was Richard III of Leicester car park fame. And it all seemed so quiet and uneventful up on this rolling hill today. For full historical immersion could join one of the reenactment groups -clip of YouTube of rubber bunged arrows being fired and some rather timid close combat 'fighting' -to half heated applause from the watching crowd.Chris Pearson23/03/2017
From Thorpe Road. Bridleway then path. Flat top. According to friendly local the hill is called Fox Hill.chrisbien09/10/2016
As Adrian: very nice village: good path E through crops.GordonAdshead19/07/2016
Another beautiful Northants (or is it Oxfordshire) village. FP initially well marked but petered out in fields. Heavy, sticky soil. Met landowner at top of field. Pleasant chap. Pointed out that one side of the hedge was Oxfordshire, the other Northants.Campbell Singer18/02/2016
