Following an enjoyable day at the Farnham Food Festival plus a visit to Farnham Castle, I was able to persuade my wife & daughter to drive out here and bag this hill with me. A stiff little climb from the car park to the SW brings you to a topography set in a small patch of heathland with expansive views. Wandered around the summit which is mostly woodland - I thought it was a little higher 20m to the NE, on some humps in the woods. Really pleasant little hill, enjoyed it.wheresthepath30/09/2018
Short but steep walk up from car park to converted trig. Fantastic views. Surprised it still had the flush bracket. My GPSr had the hill marked at a point clearly below the summit, strange?thejackrustles21/04/2018
Walk from Tilford, there pleasant pastoral scenery. It's scrappy country as you get nearer to Farnham, quite a bit of low density and very wealthy housing but not attractive. Crooksbury Common and the view from the hill summit are both very worthwhile.pwheeler18/01/2018

Started from Waverley Abbey House car park (free, at time of logging), quick visit to the Abbey ruins, the cave that is just off the road towards the hill and then ascended Crooksbury from the south side. Very steep stairs climb to the summit, great views at the top to the south west. Care should be taken on this route as until you reach the car park just south of the hill there are few decent tracks through the woods and you will need to walk the road which can be busy. However, if you cross the woods south west of the hill you may come across something very strange indeed...The Mountain Raven26/08/2017
