Up path from village to north, 17.33...twenty minutes to sunsetvegibagger22/10/2018
From Forest Hill. Summit by field edge. Short grass still in April. Nice hill apart from the road noise.Herbert Anchovy09/04/2018
From the village. Access to summit via stile and steps.ijpowell09/09/2017
Getting to Forest Hill was the hard part. Up from the north. No problem with grass due to it being February. Is ther an easier way from the A40?Campbell Singer26/02/2017
Simples - an apt but horrible word - the catchphrase of Aleksander the Meerkat accepted by the Collins English dictionary in 2010. From Forest Row on row to an easy open grass field direct to hedge line which had been recently been cut right back exposing summit. Simples indeed. Not sure what Aleksander would have said about previous bagger's route comments - 'horribles' probably?Chris Pearson17/02/2017
as per ngthack. Horrendous thrash through head high grass and weeds. Ugh!arranc16/08/2016
Parked on B road W of phone box road junction, in Forest Hill. Walked up road and path into field, waded through 5 ft high grass, tough going to field corner, needed trekking pole and long trousers to bash a way through nettles into thick hedge/trees to access highest point on bank by trees - difficult to assess the actual summit. Once out of entanglements, nice views northwards, but slogged around field edge easier for a bit then harder so just ploughed on direct through the tall jungle like grass! To return whence I came. Bring a machete or lawn mower for this one!!! Or better approach might be paths from the NE.pdantic21/07/2016
