Should be renamed Dundry Dump!. The wife was not happy about having to clamber over mounds of rubble and slurry. This is a disgrace of a summit!! On a positive we will never have to do it againJephcote8323/03/2019
From village car park as others.Very messy when reaching the high point with panoramic view of scrap yard.NormanW09/02/2019
As Dartmoorman, except after the kissing gate the ground has had lots of soil and rocks freshly dumped on the way to the thin mast and trig. Filthy but easily avoided. Great views of Bristol on the way.iangalbraith07/01/2019
Pleasent drive and walkkatreides788722/12/2018
As per 'Dartmoorman' who gives the clearest description - the foothpath shown on the OS map as going through the scrap yard is clearly now wrong - it has probably been officially diverted further N, then further W - if followed through as a circuit, it leads to the double gates to the S of the scrap yard (no suitable parking identified near these gates).Isbjorn02/11/2018
detour off M5 on way back to Cornwall. great view over Bristol. Summit itself is on private land. 5 minute walk from Village car park. Took footpath through field around farm rather than walk through farmyard.Longwojo01/10/2018
Along footpath from the south.Winterfloodian16/09/2018

Here for the trigpoint. TP:UK log: Parked at gates (N51° 23.767' W2° 38.712') which had lots of farm machinery behind them and didnt look like they had been open for a while, near the warning mine shafts sign. Down track past caravans and of to the right (N51° 23.856' W2° 38.665') up to the skinny mast and trigpoint, be careful not to fall over the wires holding up the mast. Very messy area. Another trig that took longer than expected. Very surprised to find out the hill is a Marilyn!thejackrustles19/07/2018

From Dundry CP on bend in road, pass through gate taking well signposted footpath. Walk in westerly direction with fence on left. Continue to corner of fence, turn south alongside fence heading between fence and large trasmitter compound. Continue along fence to a kissing gate, and head diagonally left up a mound with thin mast on it. Trig point is at base of this thin mast, overlooking unsightly scrap yard. Flat, easy walk, field was dry, easy access. Re previous comment, the Dundry Inn IS open and serving meals!Dartmoorman04/05/2018
Packed the car in village walked across a field past the transmission towers and into a scrap yard with a trig in the middle very odd hilljmistry8604/03/2018
A dump, but a very easy one.Gill24/01/2018
Parked in front of blocked entrance to disused mineshaft. Only 0.2 miles to summit from here but fp is liquidised mud and summit is surrindee by discarded hardcore making for an impromptu scramble. Then sneak over low electified to bag summit and trig point keeping out of view of farm workers to the east to avoid GOMLencounter. Short but good fun. Final Area 41 Marilyn.SteveSmith10/01/2018
From the village carpark, FP west then south. The trig is on a portion of grass near an aerial. The top of the hill is a bit of a mess.dal30/12/2017

8/8M last of the day in the dark from cp in the village.robertphillips08/11/2017
From car park took path past masts and through scrap yard to summit and straight back.dgresty11/09/2017
From car park used footpaths to get near summit, then last few yards a right mess. Smell noticed at one point. A small new mast has been erected near summit - beware wire stays which are a trip hazard.AlanD06/09/2017
Good view over Bristol on the way there. Apart from that a total dump!twg2726/06/2017
TD, C & HThis Dog01/06/2017
We had lunch in the Dundry Inn which is lovely. The hill, however, is not. We did the short walk from the inn to the summit through a couple of pleasant fields then over several rubble heaps and past a broken toilet to reach the trig point. With Keith, Aunty Eilidh and baby Ross.islamidget27/05/2017
An utter dump (in the true meaning of the word). I can't imagine there's a hilltop in a worse state than this one anywhere else in the UK. Access is easy enough from the village car park.Richard06/05/2017
Both of usTonyandsue07/04/2017
Via FP from south. Very muddy track which had been churned up by big vehicles. Afterwards visited Dundry pub - which I strongly recommend - then bus back to Bristoltrimarc207/02/2017
5/5 Marilyns today. Parked by gate and picked way through horse manure and mud and rubble to reach trig (last twenyy yards is grass). True baggers hill!SS05/02/2017
Purposely didn't bring the dog today as I didn't think he'd appreciate this one. From village car park first west then south just by the masts. Enter the compound via gate then circumnavigate the spoil heaps etc to find the trig point. H2S smell still present. Exited via the southern gate onto the lane.Father Ted17/12/2016
Circular walk from car park above church. Best bits are the church and views of Bristol. New signs saying ' danger, mines' are not welcoming, nor is the strong scent of hydrogen sulphide from? Rotting manure. trig is in good condition on a bank with brambles overlooking farmyard with much apparently disused machinery. This appears to be the current high point but hard to say with rubble dumped in piles in area.Denise 07/10/2016
Not a very inspiring hill summit. Close to urban area and you can tell.nickywood109/09/2016
Followed andy macp's log . Parked car park above church 556669. Through gate at back of car park, first gate on left, headed for gate to right of farm buildings then I went too far into dump trig is not far from gate.rogreeves01/09/2016
From the village carpark along the public footpath heading west then turning north at junction past masts to the summit area. Any of the mounds could be the summit but its hard to tell what is natural and what is man made. A muddy mess and it stinks.Swindon Bagger21/08/2016
From small car park in village, along PRoW to E of trig point & over rubble past a used bowl. Stunning place. Ok for wild camp. Solo.CJM17/08/2016
Probably the most despoiled Marilyn in the world. An utter disgrace.ngthack26/07/2016
From car park, great views, not a difficult walk but a few bits of rubbish in the way near the summitr.ashwell11/03/2016
Approached from car park near church. Pleasant enough farmland until near the top, when it turns into a tatty farmyard with heaps of dumped soil.Cas-gwent10/12/2015
Solo. Revolting top.simon and co06/12/2015
Easy stroll from the Church. Pleasant winter sunset, and good views over Bristol.huwthomas22/11/2015

Trig point hidden by heaps of hard core!Poolton12331/08/2015
Detoured onto the heaps of rubble on the way back from the western slopes of the hill to the car park in the villageMariana Trench10/08/2015
From car park where east-west path commences. After approx. 200m turn south past aerial. Followed fence to pedestrian gate. TP on nearby mound with rubble piles spoiling the area. Fence line between TP and main scrap yard. Good views from footpath over Severn Estuary.mike.hoult09/08/2015
From car park above church. Nice stroll with good views until you turn left towards the wasteland.squeegs09/08/2015
amazing the trig still stands in a scene straight out of post apocalypse Britain. such a shame as i bet the view to Bristol and the estuary would bee a 10 out of ten. as it is the place is an absolute tip. the council and landowners should be taken to task over the site. not that i will ever see it - once is enough.stig_nest26/06/2015
From the car park at the church. Through gate and along track. Left through gate and straight uphill aiming for gate to right of buildings. Through gate and right through opening. Follow fence and newly planted hedge to trig.andy macp21/04/2015
Started walk from The Dundry Inn, alongside the village car park a gate leads into an open field. A gate on the left leads you to a triangulation pillar at the top of Dundry down amongst a big cow shed, piles of tyres and old vehicles!Suzyj25/01/2015
2/3 not the most impressive top I have been on...trig point only redeeming featureFergalh02/12/2014
A good car park at 556669. Take the path through the farm gate and head to the obvious high point on the left, through the gate to the scrap yard and the trig point is the only redeeming feature.bolton19/11/2014
Second visitPeteF25/10/2014
Walked from the British Legion Club car park in the village but a better place to park is by the gate to the field at ST 55634 66867. I didn't try to locate the trig point which was obscured behind some large barns. Operated near the barns for SOTA on HF then visited the nearby pub by the church for a swift pint before leaving, it was a pleasant summer evening.G4OBK (Phil)15/07/2014
