Having ‘bagged’ Eggardon hill early I drove to Broadwindsor and parked by the village store. Breakfast pastry purchases before a 10.5 mile walk up to Lewesdon hill before heading back down to pick up bridleway and road to Pilsdon Pen. Heading down to Stoke Abott using roads and Bridle Paths and the Jubilee Way to Stoke Abbott then up to Chartknolle Farm out and back to Gerrard's Hill. Headed back to Broadwindsor via Waddon Hill which is clearly a hill the landowner does not want you to walk up!Buck03/08/2019
A tiny gem of a hill after all the notices on Waddon Hill. En route from Pilsdon Pen to Beaminster via 5 hills. At the foot of this hill there is a small wood managed by The Woodland Trust where the signs welcome visitors in direct contrast to Waddon Hilltrimarc220/11/2018

8.5 mile walk from car park south of Pilsdon Pen, walked down country lane south-east and onto Jubilee Way to Stoke Abbott (very posh village), up better path to Chartknolle Farm out and back to Gerrard's Hill, then west along Wessex Ridgeway onto Lewesdon Hill, along to B-road and climbed Pilsdon Pen from North, back to car park. Then drove to and bagged Lambert's Castle Hill and Colmers Hill. Lovely and sunny with nice breeze.DanTrig22/05/2017

On Litton Cheney Trig Baggers weekend. Parking on B3163 for this and Beaminster Hill. A fine looking hill, rivalling Colmer's Hill for best of the weekend. Pleasant approach on RoW through managed woodland area then steeply up pasture to top of hill with mature beech trees and trig pillar.jonglew29/03/2015
