Parked below Newbuilding Farm to SW of hill then up track most of way to bag trig then the one meter higher heather moorland summit with Phil Cooper on a damp windy morning.Dugswell219/11/2012
Easy walk up from Newbuilding Farm. Farmer's wife happy for us to park and knew where we were headed for. Summit a bit before trig - nice views.chriswatson17/11/2012
Followed a signed path, through a gate, over a turnip field to the other side and on rough pasture to a stile onto open moor. Ravens, 2 red kites and a buzzard. More bracken thrashing to a wide cross path leading W to the column 5450 441m - about 150m away from the top.arranc28/09/2011
Parked at farm - woman in house quite happy about that. Farmer in tractor, so I behaved - no fence climbing even though it meant going back to a missed gate. Trig is not the top.Martin R05/08/2011
Parked easily off road to SW by houses. Track goes all the way apart from about 50m.destaylor31/03/2011
