From 7420 8881 through a long grass field then over a wall into the area of the castle. The earthworks are quite substantial and are higher than the GR which is presumably the highest natural point.clivevilla22/06/2020
I walked to Cranbrook Castle on Uppacott Down with MAE, starting at an easy parking space at SX 7420 8881. We went on to Butterdon Hill: MAE summitted, but I was defeated by the bracken, brambles and gorse!David Purchase04/10/2019
Walk up from Fingle Bridge on a warm overcast day. Saw plenty of Grey Squirrels, Woodpigeon’s and Pipits. There were lots of Bluebells in flower and Linnets on the summit. I visited the rampart and the area that contained the highest natural ground. Good views the scaffolding was still on Castle Drogo.isabelle30/05/2019
Sunny walk around this summit and higher ramparts after bagging Cransbrook Castle trig point.Dugswell229/03/2019
From cp at 742888. Bridleway to the top.Moorponder29/06/2018
Path up from SE now a wide, grassy, well-maintained path. Good parking SX 7419 8881. Due to narrow lanes and parking difficulties, combined with Butterdon Hill to SEcarole engel27/06/2018
Impressive iron age earth embankments in rings. HP on grass, gorse and bracken covered embankment. Relocated trig at nearby road junction.Denise 21/12/2017
Walk up byway from Fingle Bridge then path to the large iron age hill fort. Grass with hint of gorse enclosed by ring mounds and ditches slopes gently northwards. High point on ring mound.RichardM21/12/2017

Apparently one of the 3840 Iron Age hill forts in Britain.(284 of them in Devon & Cornwall). Is anyone bagging them? Nice wide mown path up on day walk from Chagford with Lesley and Flook the dog.Surprised by trig in car park as had not read logs. Moved in 1993 by council from fort. Why. How much did they spend on moving it?Chris Pearson08/08/2016

Small off-road parking area to SE at start of path. Then a traceable path through the bracken (August) which leads to an indistinguishable summit area. From here the high point could be anywhere. You can pick between the artificial ramparts or the slightly lower enclosed area.moorsman19/08/2014
Revisited: hill fort: highest point is gorsy southern rampart. The trig pillar which used to stand there is now to the SE, near the start of the path.RHW12/04/2014

Here for the trig pillar which has been moved from the HP. Walked up onto Cranbrook Castle IA hillfort where the trig once stood and is the HP for the hill.jonglew13/01/2014
