Track up from just before 4th roundabout to hilltop for a great viewpoint of a hive of activity below on a weekday -the growing giant distribution warehouses and Birmingham International Rail Freight Terminal. A perfect central transport hub in England with motorway, rail and airport close by. Containers were being lifted by giant cranes from the rail yard and attached to lorries for their end journeys. Maritime Transport claim to move more goods in UK than anyone else and are big here with their intermodal service ( rail then short lorry journey) claiming that rail movement of goods is the future with 97% on time delivery and reduced CO2 being good for enironmental credentials. The lower grass verges of the hill were having their own environmental care by grass cutting and weed spraying to keep the approach roads looking neat and spruce.Chris Pearson28/03/2019
Parked on roundabout at SP 2499 9951 and thru' field gate to track a few meters to the NEcarole engel17/03/2019
Still misty at 12:20 and didn't enjoy the ditch.Dugswell224/02/2019
3rd tump of 4 on an 18.3 mile route from Nuneaton to Tamworth station, climbing Mount Jud and Hartshill Pyramid then back onto the canal passing through Atherstone, veering off on B4116 and over A5 roundabout to take Fp heading West onto lane and track to Baddeslsey Ensor then footpath NW over field and into marshy terrain to reach Ind estate road. Used footpath alongside Permire Brook then road through estate N then West over the railway to then ascend up steeply loose intermittently vegetated slope, becoming grassy nearer the top. Area must be assigned for public use considering lack of fencing! Passed distinctive birdbox and entered tussocky grass area, wandering around on the flat summit before descending through immature plantings to pick up theoretical footpath leading to A5 (although no obvious sign of it on the ground). Heading for Pooley Country park...Dazingdale24/02/2019
Parked in front of a gate at the foot of the hill after turning right at one of the roundabouts in the industrial estate. Took the track up which ended as the ground began to level off. I have never previously encountered Phragmites on top of a hill before, the ground must be very compact with poor drainage. Fortunately it was fairly sparse and was not a serious obstacle. Descended via the owl box which was easier.Herbert Anchovy14/01/2019
Parked in the industrial estate by the fourth roundabout. Fortunately it was a Sunday. There is a nearby access track, which leads to high ground. Took a right fork near the top and headed for a birdbox on a pole. The ground here is grassy but above the box on the highest ground it is overgrown even in January.JohnW13/01/2019
From industrial estate, drive down road and park after 3 or 4 roundabout, up track to summit. The lower slopes are largly unvegetated higher up fll vegetation including reeds and owl boxes.cjo30/12/2018
Parked in Industrial Estate. Thick undergrowth on top with plenty of brambles and thistles. Luckily it was dry.Ramblingpaul17/07/2018
Spotted the gate into the allotments from the A5 and followed the path through and out the other side. Then over the stream and up.Alancache22/02/2018
From the trading estate to the NE - thanks for the 'tip' PeterD! Step across ditch and straight up the old mine tip with open bushes. Track past the large bird-box(?) on pole, round to the right to open ground, then left to the top. Flat top with lush vegetation at the moment.Aye Jimmy16/08/2017
From Freasley on little used public foot path past house (broken stile at LH corner of yard at end of drive) ENE along edge of fields of beans then through widely spaced barbed wire and onto N slope of hill. Dry ditch to cross then up through mixed woodland to the unexpectedly pleasent summit. Little visited, lots of flowers and great views. Recommended.RichardM14/08/2017
Parked on trading estate, past allotments, onto FP then into woods. Up through trees which when fully Grown will not give easy access. Flat open top.PeterD02/06/2017
As for ngthackarranc19/04/2017
As ngthack then down a bit more directly. The tees are, for the most part, well spaced and penetrable.clivevilla04/04/2017
Parked on new retail park early Sunday morning. Easy access from allotments to NE. Follow ROW and after pool jump the stream and up through new plantation to complete Warwickshire Tumps once again.Campbell Singer02/04/2017
From Freasley. Along RoW which starts up drive of Freasley Hall & over non existent stile. Along field margins to north of tip, over moat & up through saplings & conifers past CCTV to flattish top.ngthack10/03/2017
From W, Freasley, via RoW which goes down private driveway, path unsigned but stile still there. Summit level tussocky grass, spoil heap landscaped and mostly well vegetated, just a few bare patchesRHW19/02/2017
