Parked in main car park, not long to get to the trig.ironwolf15/07/2019
Parked in car park...took path to second set of rocks where peak is located. At this time of year, the approach to rocks is covered with a mass of brambles and nettles. Not being dressed to take on the mass I headed to trig point and accessed peak a bit higher up.iron_sun14/07/2019
From the bus at Werrington windmill tower. Approached by RoW and lane from the south to a CP. A broad track around the access boundary leads to a very short brambly trod and bwf to gain the summit.Moorponder11/03/2019

Third log of 8 today on a 21.8 mile walk from Longton to Blythe Bridge station, first exploring Park Hall Hill and the former summit before heading to Hulme Village, footpath to Widow Fields farm then lane NE and a fiddly footpath beside a stream to enter Washerwall then out again encountering pleasant woodland. On reaching access land headed East then NE on road, continuing up on footpath, over fence and across to the boulder. Wetley was living upto its namesake! Dropped down to the road for the trek across to Overmoor.Dazingdale27/01/2018

Climbed boulder in twilight with great view of the lights of The Potteries in the snowMark Sims14/01/2017
From car park. 100 m before boulder, turn right up narrow path to small gate, then under single strand of bw, across shallow quarry to boulder. Good friction on boulder, despite looking green & greasy.ngthack31/12/2016
Easy walk from car park to the south. Final few ms involves an awkward bwf and an easy clamber up an obvious big boulder.Campbell Singer29/12/2016
Good parking then short walk to boulder - which is on the other side of a barbed wire fence.Alan Caine28/12/2016
Parking at SJ 93771 48068 (car park). Head North for 30 yards then follow the wall NW for about five minutes to summit. Agree with Andrew Brown that the obvious high point is the large boulder. As a child I lived about a mile away from here - we always called this area Wetley Common.David Evans27/12/2016
