Looked for destroyed trig pillar. Near bungalowcjo24/12/2019
Parked to N at sign to 'Blue Barn'. Seemed highest at field edge across road from bungalow. Weakness in hedge near house may be where trig once resided?Aye Jimmy14/07/2019
Wandered over field in the pitch dark. GPS provided sufficient light.Campbell Singer10/12/2018
Walked down Lane, verge opposite side of lane to bungalow seemed to be HP, or just in field. Man made reservoir to east higher, which also visited.PeterD07/05/2018
Short walk from farm road junction to bungalow.rhalstead02/07/2017
Parked in the lane leading to the farm, wandered about in the field N of the farm track. A helpful farmer told us the trig had been located nearer to the farm buildings, the spot now occupied by a disused electrical switch box. ST 94050 68665DanMaisieBex16/02/2017
From Laycock on circular Walk with Moira. Grey day.rfoster22/10/2016

1/3 Quick walk up from road to bend in private road beside houseFergalh23/06/2015
I visited the bungalow and the compound but wasn't totally convinced by either prospective summit.Chris Peart26/04/2015
Visited the bit of road outside the bungalow and then the reservoir which is higher, although I'd agree its base is lower than the road.Herbert Anchovy22/12/2014
Top seems to be on driveway (a public RoW) just at the bend by bungalow. Limited parking where drive meets minor road to north. Flat top and trees mean limited views, but impressive tithe barn along road to NW. Also hopped over gate to reservoir in field to east, but this is definitely lower.Hillsidenick19/01/2014
Visited to bag the trig pillar that OS records as destroyed Nov 1982. Parked roadside on minor road and walked up PROW access road to farm and private bungalow. Top not obvious, OS 1:25k indicates both trig site and comms mast in field at 180m. Visited both.jonglew07/04/2012
