Parked in gateway. Short walk to summit tree. Didn't bother with the trig which looked like it was on lower ground and may have been in a garden.Herbert Anchovy17/11/2019
Parked right by the field entrance. Walked to Old tree then over to see the Trig which is in a paddock in view of the house. Nowhere to turn the car so had to reverse a long way back down the lane.fosal2928/07/2019
Wincantoní s hill. I had 1hr 34 mins exactly between buses to scamper a circuit around 3 Tumps, on a morning escape from school camp at Bruton. The town being famous for its racecourse and the Wincanton Skirmish of 1688 when scouting parties of the ruling catholic James Il clashed with those of the invading protestant William of Orange. The overthrow is often called the bloodless revolution due to the low number of casualties, 17 here (and e.g @ 30 in the Glencoe massacre 4 years later for no oath of alligiance to William) . I bagged the long grass near the trig as the summit and ignored the lone tree in the open field as a possible high point as it was being used for a prolonged portrait photo shoot by a couple, and I thought it best to avoid a skirmish of my own.Chris Pearson20/06/2019
Walked from sister-in-Laws in Wincanton. Summit possibly near isolated tree or south of trig.David Evans17/03/2019
High point seems to be by the old tree only about 5m from the PROW rather than the trig point to the east. First new hill of 2019.Swindon Bagger18/01/2019
