Small car park at entrance to wind farm at 65978 85725. East down track, across river and up to brow on access road before turning left, also on an access road. Summit looks like it is the trig but I walked along the slight ridge by the wind turbine as that is close to the same height.clivevilla18/07/2019
From the car park to SW, as per Mark Trengove. Visited the mound (partly man made) close to wind turbine, nearby natural rise and the trig point areaRobertP16/12/2017

From the car park at the beginning of the windfarm track at SN 65978 85725. Took the track up past the old mine all the way to the summit, then on to the trig point to be sure. Returned the same way. Solo.Man of Kernow111/02/2017

Currently 820 HuMPs in E, W and IOM - this is number 800 for me! If you start at the barn there is a permissive path that avoids having to use the wind power station road. I would say that the non-trig summit is man made and the trig is at the natural sumMartin R28/08/2011
