|From dirt layby E side road (SK 5672 6977). Track to gap in fence (SK 5687 7009), then near enough direct line to top. HP now 142m at SK 5721 7014, but it's a work in progress.||jonglew||05/02/2020|
|WIP Heaps of material being dumped and heavy earth moving machinery working on summit area, areas of trees newly planted on summit slope.||RichardM||15/01/2019|
|7 of 7 on brilliant 37.3 mile bike ride. Enjoyed this one. Including Mansfield colliery, silverhill, newton Wood Lane and the boundary, robin hoods hill, Mansfield hill and welbeck colliery||The-Z-Man||28/09/2018|
|Drizzly Sun eve, from E as per Campbell. Summit is currently fresh topsoil, its designation seems premature||RHW||03/09/2017|
|Completed Nottinghamshire again only to find another one had bee added today which I passed in the car in blissful ignorance. Parked in lay by on A60 and took fp along fence. Ignored first gap and went through gap at SK 56870 70100. Easy climb through wood and then over gaseous soil. Fine vantage point. Dusk on Sunday so no security issues.||Campbell Singer||06/08/2017|
|As AJ, but the second gap in the fence felt more like 200m along to me. Notts completed for the Nth time.||GordonAdshead||30/07/2017|
|Failed on first attempt on Friday - same starting point as others before, but as I made my way up towards the summit I was spotted by some guys in a black Range Rover (presumably security), who upon seeing me started heading down in my direction at quite a rate of knots. Decided to beat a hasty retreat. Popped back through the fence half an hour later but there were still lots of lorries tipping spoil. Came back on Sunday when the place was deserted - no problems.||Wheelsy||16/07/2017|
|On my way home from a walk at Ranskill. Used same route as Aye Jimmy. No one around, no problems. Good summit with extensive views. My 200th P30 and Notts recompleted... again.||Richard Gunn||15/07/2017|
|A foray to this hill en-route to Renishaw Hall & Gardens with my mum and my daughter. I parked up in Meden Vale on Eggmanton Street while my family patiently waited for me and then took fp heading at first East and then North, where it turns East again i climbed Fence topped with barbed wire to then push my way through trees to get to a lush woodland ride, i followed this before deciding to push and crawl through the Hawthorn scub barrier to arrive at the fenceline of the solar farm; I followed the perimeter of this before veering off for the summit. Topsoil dumped on top but summit is nicely grassed prominent knoll further ahead. Marked summit as SK57358 70127. Lots of wildflowers evident on descent Sw parallel with solar farm boundary then headed South to follow track on inside of boundary. I headed SE and then NE on the track before using a gap in the fence to regain fp and then road back to the car.||Dazingdale||15/07/2017|
|Same starting point as ngthack, followed path by fence ignoring awkward hole in fence until after 100m and around bend is an easy walk-through gap. If one keeps to L for while below summit field as far as an instrument on tripod (rain gauge?) there's an easy road up. Summit in long grass about 30m beyond small gorse bush. Took reading at spot now marked by a few cobbles.||Aye Jimmy||09/07/2017|
|Parked at SK 568698. 2 lay-bys at crest of hill on A60. Just after start of FP, there is a hole in the fence. Faint overgrown path for a bit, then opens out to deep grass & solar farm on south slopes of hill. Across to recently deposited topsoil to west of summit. Then easily to top. Summit well grassed over, with a lone gorse bush. Good views. Active regeneration to W,E & N of hill, but doesn't look likely to overtop the current summit.
