The last of an excellent day's XC ski trip, in fading pink light. An indistinct summit in undulating snowy field with pheasant breeding area nearby. Descended through woods to Horningham.Denise 03/02/2019
From the S. Levelish summit field, probably pasture under the snow. Woods appear to be commonly used by the locals. Last of the day on XC skiis.RichardM03/02/2019
From bend in road to NW. initially along track then up through woods to field with stubble and HP.PeterD06/08/2017
Picked up a couple of hitchers and gave them a lift to the Bath Arms. Turned back and parked at ST 80556 41720 at private road junction. It wasn't obvious where the track through the wood began so went across the pasture next to the wood. In the top right hand corner is a gate which takes you onto the track. Go up the track and then take the right fork which will take you up to the arable field. It was stubble today so no problems. This is an easy route.Herbert Anchovy03/08/2017

7th of a 10 tump 26 mile circuit from Warminster. fps link from Brimsdown Hill and 1st glimpse of Longleat House -my next destination. easy out and back across pastures from road to SE then jog down to Horningsham which has the 5 P's identified by Country Life as essential to a successful village: a pub,a post office, a place of worship, a primary school and public transport (although limited).It also had foot and cycle access to Longleat estate for my onward route to Roddenbury Hill before being pounced on by security.Chris Pearson30/07/2016
From nw. Stubble fieldRHW25/12/2015
Parked on the 90 degree bend at ST 80210 41358 and went straight up through the open woodland. Over BW fence to summit - the GR is about right.Chris Peart16/01/2015
From Horningsham on forest track to covered reservoir, over b/w fence and out onto open arable field. Stubble today so no access problems. Broad flatish ridges running N-S in field. Definite highest ridge, but difficult to determine highest point on the ridge.jonglew22/10/2014
