Parked to the West at the start of Dunnock road SE089118, then as Campbell Singer.David Evans03/06/2019
09.35 after a veggie breakfast in Morrisons in Meltham. Thin mist rolled in while I was skirting along the track round its south side looking for a gap that I could use. Didn't find one till a gate on the east side. Very thin mist had half dissipated by time I decided to come down the north slopes, now that I could now see where there was a gate at the NE corner of the field out on to the road.vegibagger07/01/2019
