Parked to S then track up to Furze Knoll. Across cropped field to toppled trig. Seemed to be a small bird nesting either inside trig or on mound, made quite a fuss!Aye Jimmy14/07/2019
From Cherhill A4 via Cherhill Hill tump on Calstone Down. Nice 6 mile walk featuring view of white horse, wander through Oldbury hill fort, a stretch of roman road and Wansdyke. Back via charming old rectory. At Calstone Wellington. I measured height at both Furze Knoll and the trig point and suspect the former may in fact be a touch higher.Pete West18/02/2019
From the Smallgrain Plantation car park. Excellent track most of the way. Fell over the bwf. Forward roll but no gymnastic judges present to award high points. Over sheepy field to dead trig.Campbell Singer11/12/2018
From SW, visited copse, but fallen trig higher. Tractor tracks useful.PeterD07/05/2018
Tractor lines useful. Fine overnight camp nearby on Furze KnollColin Crawford28/07/2017
Pinnacle of earth in cropped field next to sadly toppled trig ( apparently caused by badgers, but no sett visible today). Also visited the beech copse nearby, definitely lower.Approached via ancient routes from picnic area and carpark to west.Denise 31/03/2017
Mound with toppled trig point in field of recently tilled chalky soil but without any crop yet showing. Also visited the beech copse to the SE which was slightly lower by Abney. Good views.RichardM31/03/2017
Bishops Cannings circular. Approached from E along Wansdyke before visiting Furze Knoll then toppled trig.Smudge08/01/2017
Parked in picnic area to the east. Summit was in a crop field but tractor tracks led to within 5 yards of it. Fallen trig lying there seemd rather sad.clivevilla26/08/2016
From parking/picnic area, good track 100yrds then cross newly cut crop field.rhalstead18/08/2016
Climbed up from the S after 2 other hills - trig point is on its side, looking very forlorn.DanMaisieBex01/05/2016
Part of a 15 mile mountain bike circular ride from Devizes.kingabunyip17/04/2016
With Cherhill Down from SU028660 (parking)jimbloomer11/10/2015
Lovely hill. With Will & Bert and six children while camping near Calne. Sunny but windy.Herbert Anchovy06/06/2015
Summit just to S of fallen trig. Higher than the copse though that is worth a shifty.Adrian30/05/2015
3/4 Nice walk up to copse hard to say if fallen trig pillar or copse is highest pointFergalh28/04/2015
I walked up the Wansdyke from the picnic area. The flush bracket is still concealed.Chris Peart14/04/2015
From road/track junction to SSW. Which is higher, the fallen trig or beech spinney?BrianMatthews21/01/2014
This and Cherhill Down climbed separately at dawn before breakfast and training course at Duntsey's school. Up and down from west. Trig on side. Later that evening at dusk climbed Golden Ball Hill & Martinsell Hill.Chris Pearson14/04/2010
First visit of many. ***Returned 21 Apr 2010 to bag the trig; walked up from Calstone Wellington on circular walk to Cherhill Down and return via Ranscombe Bottom. ***Revisited today 10 Feb 2014. Had asked farmer back in summer 2013 to roll trig pillar so flush bracket visible when cropping, but he didn't do it. Pleasant 10-mile circular walk from home, through Calstone Wellington, then onto Cherhill Down before returning.jonglew30/07/2009
from picnic site to W RHW19/03/2005
Walked it when it was a mere Dewey Notable. Ironic how many of Dewey's subjective Notable hills, previously shunned by purist bagging only relative hill, are now TuMPs!Hillsidenick26/02/2000
Many times whilst growing up nearby. Loads of orchids on the slops.wheresthepath01/01/1990
