Hp is south side of grass-covered, enclosed reservoir near field track- though gate open and possible to stand on top. ROC bunker in bramble became obvious- accessible. Rolling downland views.Denise 14/12/2019
Gate provides access from path to field of pasture and summit area which has easily accessed covered reservoir on N side and accessible ROC bunker on the S side. Hill top somewhat disturbed but natural high point feels to be beside the S side of the resr. fence.RichardM14/12/2019
On walk from Stoughton via Bow Hill HP, farm, then field paths via E. Marden. All go well; the RoW from the N of this hill was signposted along the track E of the top and I went through a gate where the track is shown turning W to the HP. Returned via Up Marden and Inholmes Wood, paths all the way, finishing round the edge of the field NW of the church. A gate led to the church, a must-visit as was the pub in this wonderful village.pwheeler20/08/2019
