Parked at the Cat Custard and walked down lay, and through field towards trig. No trig found in hedgerow but google maps said we were stood on the right spot.Hippy7716/02/2020

From the Parking Space near the Church, along field edge then carefully negotiated crops to reach the high point on the field boundary. Not Worth a proper walk so headed off to explore elsewhere. Quick visit to the church which was niceJephcote8315/06/2019
Very easy Marilyn after arriving back through tunnelMark Sims02/05/2019
As others from pub car park round field edges, plus trig visit.N.Morters25/04/2019

Parked in the car park at the rear of the Cat and Custard. Field margins to high point - trig enclosed in water reservoir area fenced off.Drove down to view the Channel Tunnel complex.NormanW15/02/2019
Managed to park on grass verge at TR 19670 39790, to avoid using pub car park. Then a deviation from the line of the RoW passing through the same field.Isbjorn08/11/2018

Walked up from near Peene. Pleasant but uninspiring. Earlier walk on White Cliffs was much more fun.IanHHill29/09/2018

Hard to call this an ascent! Drove all the way from South Wales to bag my last two Kent Marilyns and do some geocaching. Parked by the junction where the pub and church are then down the track and across the field diverting off the footpath for the last 100 meters or so to get to the given grid ref.Father Ted20/05/2018

Ascent from the south to Paddlesworth villagebrandybordeaux16/09/2017
From Aerodrome road through fields.rhalstead09/09/2017
First hill of the day on my whirlwind tour of Southeastern Marilyns. The walk from the parking space at the Cat and Custard, Paddlesworth, must be all of 300 m and perhaps 5 m of ascent, but the hill doesn't seem exciting enough to merit extension to a longer walk. Instead of a nice walk, I had a nice chat with the owner of the field. He was surprised to hear that he owns a Marilyn.Gill08/07/2017
With K. I slept around here somewhere in a van years ago.Ashley30/04/2017
