Detour from the Winchcombe to Cleeve Hill section of the Cotswold Way.milimana30/11/2018
With E. Short flat walk from road end by telecomms masts. Low cloud with visibility down to 20 metres meant no views at all so didn't extend the walk across Cleeve Common to Cleeve Hill and The Ring trig point as originally planned.Beeliner16/11/2018
Approach from CP to NNW via trig pillar 'The Ring'. Misty.ger29/10/2018
From NW starting at road end car park. Short and flat walk up to trig on smooth ground.Topographer5703/10/2018

From carpark at antenna. Yellow wagtail sitting on fence by trig point!Danmawr08/08/2018
Parked at the car park (free) next to the golf club to the N (park at the far end to avoid golf balls flying over your car) then followed the Cotswold Way S past the masts to the summit. Followed the slightly more direct Winchcombe Way back. Took about an hour in total, with a few stops for photos.Wheelsy05/08/2018
Travelling from Manchester to Torquay - Our second Marylin of the day. Hot now and getting hotter (Approx. 29 degrees). We park near Woodmancote at the top of Stockwell Lane. Short green / yellow grasses, trig and toposcope (the hoot of a steam train crossing the plain below) then walled Beech tree (but this is not the summit) onward past the masts to the summit and 2nd trig beyond. Cattle huddle under the shade of a tree. Fabulous feeling of space on this hill. We lingered but have a journey to complete.briandavies26/07/2018
With Angus Chandler 20 mins before sunset.vegibagger15/07/2018
Up from the road.tomd410/07/2018
Parked near the masts (free, plenty of spaces along the road) so getting to the summit was not exactly an achievement, but the short walk across to the memorial tree SO987256 and then the viewpoint SO985263 is a must! Bagged on what might end up being the last properly hot day of 2018.jkl03/07/2018
Up from the golf course. Great views, but very warm.huwthomas01/07/2018
I enjoyed the drive to the CP at Cleeve Common more than the short walk out to the trig and back. Better done as part of a longer walk for some sense of acheivement as it felt like cheating.KC08/06/2018
great views. Cuckoo calling.gettingonabit09/05/2018

Parked at Rising Sun Hotel on the slopes of Cleeve Hill. Walked more or less straight up to the first summit by the golf course. Arctic winds made it v.chilly. Headed to the true highpoint via the Solitary Tree, then back along the escarpment aka Cleeve Cloud and to the pub for lunch.UKHighpoints29/10/2017

From the public car park beside Cleeve Hill Golf Club. Along the Winchcombe Way to the summit trig point, then back across the common to pick up the Cotswolds Way to the other trig point. With baby Ross.islamidget07/09/2016
Walked from layby on B4632 up to the trig point with the viewpoint then on via the fort and radio masts to the summit. Walked down through the woods and across to Postlip before returning to the first trig point and then to the car. Good clear views, dry during walk but wet before and after.clyoung29/07/2016
Parked at viewpoint on B4632. Lovely walk up onto & across common to trig & summit. Skylarks & swifts overhead.mart079718/06/2016

clear, warm, sunny day ...sheep getting in the way of the fairways on the golf course. Lovely circular walk from clubhouse taking in the trig, topographic and views.keithelliott04/05/2016
Easy bag from car park at end of track near the top. Made more of a walk of it by going over to Cleeve Cloud to admire the view of Cheltenham.Cas-gwent08/04/2016
Parked on the Road at Cleeve Hill and walked up onto Cleeve Common. Challenging but the views very rewarding. Could see Severn Crossing bridge and the hills of Exmore behond. Looking north could see Clent Hills my previous Walk a few days before. Well worth a walk around the top of the common. Visited both Trigs.Viroco02/04/2016
