SOTAmike.hartley22/11/2015
Date may be wrong but a sunday in early October. Nothing much to say about this un. Trig in ploughed field. Top nondescript and maybe in heavily overgrown water compound.stig_nest05/10/2015
Parked near metal gate leading to field and walked along edge of field to TP. My satnav showed the summit to be in the hedge on the edge of the field.mike.hoult25/07/2015
Bridleway from Pencombe - one v muddy section. Back via lane. Not much of a hill but v good views.squeegs17/02/2015

Pleasant stroll from Pencombe on bridleways via Durstone Farm. Lovely sunny day - 18°C in mid March!milimana16/03/2014
Ignored road closed sign to park by Lower Hegdon track. Along track to gap in hedge - over fence then along edge of crop to trig and top.Bramley20/07/2013
Operated SOTA from here with Geoff Fielding M6PYG. Set the station up down private track just behind gate at SO 5855 5391.G4OBK (Phil)14/07/2013
with Alastair and Sarah. 10 paces from the car to do SOTA at the summit!M0YDH06/07/2013
Parked at the green triangle near Pencombe as roads were marked as closed (turns out we could have driven to the top after all). Went through the gate at the bridleway and over wooden fence on the left through field to the trig point. Instead of going along the bridleway, if you go 30m further down the road past the compound, there is a metal gate which is closer to the trig.hmt100024/05/2013
8 mile circular from Grendon Green. Footpaths hard to follow in places, more like open fields with no markings. Great views from parts of hill but summit views blocked by trees. Footpath literally goes through a barn on way back, ended with a serious slog over ploughed fields.Columba07/03/2013
On return from Builth, damp day. Parked w Jenx by compound, got out and wandered back around to west of mast to climb gate and find trig. Nice views through mists. Grendon next to complete pair.nordicstar18/11/2012
An obvious summit by the fenceline.JohnStoneham18/03/2012
Arrived here about 18:40 - getting quite dark. Didn't go into compound but was close enough. Unexciting.dbb15/03/2012

Really just drove to this one- found the top then wandered a few yards down the lane to admire the clarity of the views, cloud just lifting off the Black Mountainspwheeler08/08/2011
Over the gate just past the compound into a field full of crops and thistles. Legs are still itching! Great views all around.simon and co09/07/2011
Another almost drive on. Parked by the side of the road and walked into the field to touch the trig point. Did my radio activation from the road side.G4OOE20/05/2011
Parked on verge at entrance to track at SO 58534 53895. Walked along track for 150m to gap in hedge. Easy climb over sturdy wooden fence then walked back along edge of crop field to trig and highest point beside fence.David Gradwell24/04/2011
To the scent of flowers out of the hedge and the tune of piano music from the house down the lane. Cycled from Leominster.Eddie16/04/2011
Nice hill easy climbG4OWG09/03/2011
Settled for standing atop the trig rather than breaking into the compound. Rather mundane stuff.Herbert Anchovy14/09/2010
Of all places to build a secure compound its on top of a hill. The trig on the other hand is easer to get to.Father Ted09/05/2010
