Highest point on 16km walk E.Meon- Henwood Down(qv)- Middle Hill(qqv)- Pidham Hill-Barrow Hill- E.Meon. From Halnaker via Drayton, terrace path above & N of E. Meon, Park Fm. Left RoWs at 691233 and took farm track to summit area, then track N in wood to bridleway which became encroached by nettles and hogweed- had to put long trousers on for this section to join road btw Pidham and Langrish.pwheeler24/05/2020
A walk out from East Meon via Park hill and return through Frogmore. Wound up in the pheasant pens for a while..Very muddy! Byeways to Barrow hill were closed for resurfacing so only one hill 'bagged' today.Buck12/01/2020
Entered forest from N along track alongside gamebird breeding pens. Summit plateau with hazel, oak and holly is quite open and flat with no distinct HP.Denise 06/08/2019
From the N along the E most forest track past Pheasant pens. Large levelish summit area with ill defined high point. Possibly better approached from NW on track along field boundary.RichardM06/08/2019
Bus from Petersfield to Clanfield east corner, then Windmill Hill - Hinton Down - Broadhalfpenny Down - Wether Down - Henwood Down - Middle Down - Pidham Hill - Barrow Hill - Petersfield.Mark Jackson13/10/2018

Back againfor the hour's dog walk , but unlike yersrday reflecting on the passing of Stephen Hawkins and the mystery of Black Holes.Chris Pearson14/03/2018
An hour's exercise with Molly the dog again - new row variation and took in the summit again in the trees. Also exercising the chuckle muscle reliving last nights tv's tribute to the unique Ken Dodd who passed away yesterday.Chris Pearson13/03/2018
Same as yesterday - but gloomy today. Nonetheless the skylarks still singing.Chris Pearson09/03/2018
Early morning out and back dog walk wit L for an hour along the lovely balcony route from East Meon, sunny and blue sky with a bracing cold wind .Chris Pearson08/03/2018
Back staying again at East Meon. Back out with Molly the terrier ( and a recuperating L) for an hour and three quarters dog walk both in am and pm passing around this hill staying on row. Kites, buzzards, and a skylark singing invisibly in the sky as a rush of warm sunshine gave promise of distant summer after the big freeze ( Beast from the East) that saw East Meon cut off briefly and many boilers braking down as condensate pipes froze.Chris Pearson06/03/2018
Took Molly the dog out from East Meon for last hour of a beautiful cold winter's day as sun dipped. Very atmospheric with turquoise bands across sky above which was a half moon and Venus shining brightly, claimed by some to be the star the 3 wise men saw -appropriate on the eve of the epiphany. Chimney smoke sinking low like a blanket across the village and fields (due, I read,to smoke being cooled rapidly in the freezing air and particles being denser so sinking). Back to shut the chickens up as darkness rapidly fell.Chris Pearson05/01/2017
Out with L and Molly the dog again from East Meon. Went over the sub-tump to N for a change -Sir William's Hill @p23 -odd row goes into and out of thin copse -pheasant rearing pens. Summit in stubble field. Our variation avoided the mud bath of the return walk along Pidham Lane - a green lane churned up by 4x4s - voluntary restraint notices up whilst repairs (hardcore) is dumped.Chris Pearson04/01/2017
Fed breakfast to the dog, cats, chickens. cows(4) and ourselves then out with L and the dog on New Years Day from East Meon pet sit before the rain is due to sweep in. Our 'usual' 1 hour+ circuit around the hill on row, but today I branched off to revisit the summit to maintain a New Year's Day summit tradition - adds to the list along with slightly bigger hills such as Kilimanjaro and the like. Back to the cottage to anxiously wind up the ancient grandfather clock!Chris Pearson01/01/2017
Circular walk around the hill sticking to footpaths this time (no summit)as dog with us. From East Meon late on a crisp winter's morning but with the frozen mud now melting quickly in the warming sunshine. With L & Molly the Irish Terrier. Later at dusk back up along the 'balcony path' for spectacular winter twilight colours - bands of orange and turquoise behind the darkness cloaked South Downs. Frost tonight again.Chris Pearson29/12/2016
Petersfield circular.Smudge13/12/2015
From SE, after Barrow, up road a short way then up thru wood. Many pheasantsRHW30/08/2015
Fp to NW then followed the field edge track below the fizzing power lines to wood and highpoint which I think is in field 10 steps west of powerline although I also explored inside the wood -which is used for pheasant rearing, with many pens.Chris Pearson28/05/2015
Parking at junc minor road / Pidham Lane for this and Barrow Hill. Field boundary SW to woodland then took direct line, very steep, through deciduous woodland. Large pheasant nursery near summit area.jonglew07/04/2015
