Walked up from the Village after Sloes hill. ROW & Permissive path to top with Trig.fosal2930/10/2019
Up from village (pub not open) and NW permissive path. Thanks Julia.arranc11/02/2019
Walked from Quarry Hill via Quarry Cross. Route followed a deep (by Dorset standards) gorge, almost into Symondsbury where permitted path can be accessed. Over the very special top and down to village. The estate sign says the permitted path will be closed on 10 days each year so it may be worth checking with Symondsbury estate that path is open before travellingtrimarc221/11/2018

On Litton Cheney Trig Baggers weekend. Probably the finest looking hill of the weekend. Parking at Symondsbury church. Along lane then up into rough pasture and just keep going up to a ring of 9 mature conifers at top with a trig pillar.jonglew28/03/2015
Parked in Symondsbury then followed the FP and then the obvious access path up through the bracken with Helen & Molly to this magical hill top, windy but with great views all round.JohRvs29/08/2013
Ask a child to draw hill with trees on top, what have you got? this place. Like some of the other visitors I d often driven past it. A half working day in Bridport gave me the opportunity. Spring sunshine no wind and a fantastic view.Anthony Vosper21/04/2009
