Farm track from Blewbury then terraced hill fort grazed by 3 friendly Donkeys. Summit all quite level. I thought the high point was in the E field where the horse lives but too dark to abney.RichardM05/01/2020
1st of 6 tops, a 7 mile traverse from Didcot to Cholsey station via Blewbury village, departing at 07 .06 I took the path up via gate. Lovely views. Checked ground in between the fences. I could see the two tops of the Wittenham Clumps. Continuation to Cholsey station arriving at 09.37 just before the train arrived to take me to Stage 2: Tilehurst station circular.Dazingdale28/07/2019
Straight up path from the north to trig. Then over fences into the sheep paddock which seemed higher to me.Herbert Anchovy20/05/2019
From lane to N, gate then path along side of hedge to another gate below hill-fort area. Summit next to trig between fences.Aye Jimmy29/03/2019
Summit at trig, which is in between two fences at the end of a footpath on obvious ancient hillfort. Good views as light drained from sky. Friendly grazing donkeys. Parking on street at end of lane to west.Also visited field to east, all fairly flat.Denise 05/01/2019
17 mile drive from Charney Manor Quaker retreat centre at Charney Bassett. Calm and beautiful day. Trig S3738 Central plug missing.vegibagger20/10/2018
First of 2 Oxfords hill fort tops today. No signboard with history at this one though. Easy form road to north with couple of parking spots.Mark Sims27/03/2018
Approach from north with easy ascent. Superb views over the Oxford Plain. Very windy. Descended to the south west heading for Warren Hill and Goring. Delightful place and a trig pillar as a bonus.Sixtyplus08/03/2018
Delightful village, delightful walk, great views. Sunny mid morning.ijpowell09/09/2017
Short steep walk up from southSwindon Bagger10/08/2017
Easy walk from north on a damp and grey day.Dugswell208/08/2017
Quick climb up from the Hagbourne Road from the N. Path now follows the hedgeline 100m W of the position marked on the OS map ( which shows the path following a civic boundary ). Parking possible on the road.DanMaisieBex09/04/2017
surveyed with Abney level; summit between the two fences 4m from trigGalltywenallt07/03/2017
From Winterbrook Farm. Excellent track and grassy path with obvious signs of old hill fort.Campbell Singer26/02/2017
Easy walk up from Winterbrook Farm. Nice hill.arranc04/10/2016
Fourth hill fort of the day & Oxfordshire completion.ngthack25/07/2016
As part of bike ride from Goring to Didcot via 3 tops. Used footpath from north direct to summit and trig pointtrimarc201/06/2016
Jog from west in the last of the evening light.The British Museum has a complete 'young horse' taken from this iron age fort. The remaining chimney lights of the fateful Didcot power station were lit up. This disused coal and oil power station half collapsed catastrophically in Feb 2016 killing 4 workers. The sad and grim task of searching through 20,000 tons of steel and concrete for 3 of the bodies still continues 3 months later from dawn to dusk.Chris Pearson25/05/2016
From Blewbury. Didn't hang about on top as Thunderstorm on its way.PeterD30/04/2016
Walked up from Aston TirroldRamblingpaul25/04/2016
As Smudge. Just space for one car at new track line from N. With new gate leading directly into the access area and up to trig, which is now in the middle of a double fence.GordonAdshead30/09/2015
Didcot to Cholsey. ROW from minor road to N into the access area starts one field further west than shown on current mapping.Smudge10/01/2015
From Blewbury a round of Blewburton Hill and Lowbury Hill.rhalstead02/02/2014
Excellent little hill with ROWs, fort and good views (which unfortunately includes Didcot PS). Good paths from lovely village of Aston Upthorpe to east. Plenty roadside parking in village near church. Highest point is almost certainly in field to east of trig. Field is easy trespass, but as difference in height is negligible it is maybe not worth it.Hillsidenick01/12/2013
Visited whilst bagging the trig. Difficult roadside parking on minor road to N; walking up on PROWs.jonglew22/11/2013
