Battling into a strong westerly headwind on short walk from east. Summit silage pit currently empty. The golf course across the road is where Samuel Ryder got the idea to start the Ryder Cup. No golfers , professional or otherwise ,attempting to play golf in today’s strong cold wind. The ball would have flown for miles today ..heading east.Chris Pearson10/03/2019
Atmospheric in early morning mist from road to east to farm at top.Mark Sims21/11/2018
Initially approached along FP from East. Then to South side of Clamp.PeterD25/06/2016
Large silage clamp. HP is on S side, looks like the hill top has been dug out and sides concreted to form the area for the clamp.jonglew11/12/2015
Silage clamp (or back edge of it) approx at natural HP. Oddly it seems to consist of chopped veg (maybe just maize) currently. Duly summitted, early on a foggy Sunday morning.RHW04/10/2015
