5th top of 6 today on a Norfolk car bagging day, visiting Knights Hill, Mount Hill, Egmere Hill and Piggs Grave. I drove through Norwich and parked up in the fishing lakes car park. It seems that this area is being prepared as a community asset. Easy walk to gorse bank; netting is being used to stabilise the ground here. Scrambled up to the top and summit is right on the corner. Interesting pillbox on top too. Back the same way to drive to Highfield Hill...Dazingdale22/02/2020
From Hillside using Chris Pearson's excellent route some nasty gorse encountered in my wanderings.rogreeves01/05/2019
Pleased to reach the summit of this unusually named hill. I can confirm that the summit is correctly located as described on hb as behind the bungalow at the end of Mill Close. Ideally it would say ...end of ‘left branch, of Mill Close. The summit can NOT be reached from Mill Close BUT CAN be reached easily with public access from the SE through Poringland Fishing Lakes and nature reserve.( From the car park at the end of Hillside, head for the end pond called Noble then pick a way through the tress and scramble up the steep bank to arrive at the summit on a gorse bank above the very steep back garden of the bungalow and looking down across the waste ground with the lower trig out of sight around the fence corner. Current baggers are being misled I suspect by the summit photo and subsequent logs in heading for the trig pillar up the right hand branch of Mill Close and being stopped short by fencing, signs and cameras.(Photo now removed from hb)Chris Pearson22/04/2019

Waste land fenced off but was able to view trig (Framingham to triggers) over fence from a metre or so away, by standing on concrete ring leaning against fence.Aye Jimmy29/04/2018
Up mill close to as close to fence as could get.PeterD12/04/2018
Wandered up Mill Close as far as permitted. Sneaked just past the Strictly No Admittance sign and then retreated. Mill Close has shiny new houses at its top end.Campbell Singer16/03/2018
Parked in the Ridings but no access from here with the busy development so walked round to access via Mill Close and a few private signs.Dugswell202/09/2016
Fortuitously met the owner as he was arriving at his piece of land he's fenced in which contains the trig pillar and the HP. He let me photograph the trig but nothing else and was very terse and uncommunicative.jonglew29/07/2016
Traversed east to west as part of a cycle ride.brandybordeaux11/06/2016
