Parking to west of road at entrance to nature reserve, w of summit, with interesting historical sign about coal mining, a canal and railway in the area, now mainly returned to nature. Summit is a cinder bing with many steep informal paths and mature trees. We accessed them from the S.Denise 21/06/2020
Mountain bike track up W ridge. Wooded spoil heap.RichardM21/06/2020
Newton St Loe to Peasedown St John. Straightforward approach up W ridge but continuing E from the top and zig zagging down loose muddy trails felt very precarious at times.Smudge05/01/2020
There is a good if steep path up the east shoulder. No descending bikes thank goodness.Campbell Singer10/12/2018

Up the mountain bike tracks. Must be quite exciting. It was difficult enough on foot.ngthack07/08/2017
This is actually a coal mining spoil heap so is man made. I thought I'd been here in 2008 on a walk from my parents place in Dunkerton but had my batches muddled up. The Old batch is a smaller hill to the SW which is now a nature reserve and industrial heritage site. Revisited the area today visiting both hills. The New Batch was an interesting walk up mountain bike tracks - quite fun running down them too. The Old Batch was a shorter and easier stroll from the village - lots of boards showing the industrial history of the area.Herbert Anchovy26/07/2016
From South, lots of Mountain bike tracks but took me to the top and back down by a different set of tracks.PeterD24/04/2016
Decided to boldly the south west ridge direct, despite its fearsome steepness!!. It was a route of a thousand cuts as, Livingston like, I battled my way up with secateurs in full snipping mode!!vegibagger26/12/2015
Short walk up steep track from ST 68615 58042. Spoil heap from the newer of 2 Camerton cola mines. Camerton Old Batch is now a nature reserve 500m or so to the SW. The 'new' pit was sunk around 1800 and produced coal to the 1950's.jonglew02/09/2015
From S, paths slippery and quite tricky after rain. Quick visit to re complete the UA p30s. At first sight not very Bing like as covered in very mature woodlandRHW31/08/2015
Parked on the road to S. and followed MTB tracks, through the well established wood, to the grassy summit.Chris Peart30/08/2015
