7th hill of 8 on a 36km traverse from Stone to Bicester, climbing Burn Hill, Waddesdon Hill, Ashendon, Dorton, North Hill and Muswell Hill, using the minor lane then switching onto the busy and dangerous B4011 before turning on the lane past the prison (permissive access) onto Patrick Haugh road then the fp allowing access into the large grassy field. I walked up to the Trig and wandered round checking for the true summit, recording 105m @ SP 61658 17200. I used the fp through the wood, leading back onto Patrick Haugh road and then into Upper Arncott, destination: Graven Hill...Dazingdale06/07/2019
HP is domed grassy field, with extensive views. Accessed from Arncott Wood. Parked in residential street in Upper Arncott near Mill Lane/ Buchanan road junction. From junction, followed informal, well used woodland path SE to reached enclosed army watertanks. Followed informal path along boundary NE to exit woodland into summit field. Whole area part of big MOD Garrison.Denise 27/04/2019

From Bullingdon HM Prison car park at 623172 (NOT the visitors' car pk). I went via a well-used cut through at the SW corner, across the disused rly track, along Patrick Haugh Rd to the fp signpost and up a well-used trod through pasture and up to the HP. back same way. A bit counter-intuitive but it seemed OK.pwheeler26/01/2018

Parked just past bend In Buchanan Rd. just past MOD gate is a path that goes up through wood and over stile to paysture summit.Campbell Singer26/02/2017
A intriguing dispersed MOD Depot area of storage areas, warehouses, roads and railways -built around Arncott and Graven hills to supply the military during WWII and still doing so today despite many changes.The 40 miles of encircling military railway tracks and shunting yards are looked after by a unit of the Royal Logistics Corps - 275 Railway Squadron (often referred to in service as 'The Railway Children'). Took me a while to notice the unsigned path up through the woods to pop out into the summit pasture.Chris Pearson02/10/2016

Bicester to HMP Bullingdon. W-E traverse using well worn woodland approach with a stile link onto mapped ROW in summit field occupied by frisky young bovines.Smudge29/11/2015
Short walk up on narrow woodland track from junc road-track (SP 61403 17147). Path continues along NW side of water treatment works and into pasture where HP seems to be a little to NE of OS spot height as shown on 1:25k mapping.jonglew02/07/2015
Surprisingly easy access considering the surrounding MOD security.ngthack22/08/2014
