Helpful local was very willing to let us cross his land to access the highest point. Not exactly a photogenic summit area but they all count.Alex C27/01/2018
Drove up and out along the minor lane, admiring the odd collection of machines etc. The old post office (now closed) bleak. Decided not to venture out into the hillbillies gardens, deciding that close to top and head above was safest approach...nordicstar04/10/2017
Not a very exciting hill!jenx04/10/2017
Drove up to the village green? Indeterminate top. The area is a bit creepy. Good location for horror film!Jemma Singer14/08/2017
Parked by red phone box at SO511178 and had a good walk around the area. Highest point seems to be the OS spot height, which is next to the reservoir fence in a scrap yard reminiscent of Dundry Down. Another possibility is under a tree on what passes for the village green.Tony J27/03/2017
With K and A. Drove up, wandered about, drove off.Ashley08/12/2016
Quick visit after days walking on Offa's Dyke.rhalstead31/10/2015
Not convinced spot height is highest point. Visited various options. Reservoir padlockedPeterD06/09/2015
7/9 Is the village from the league of gentlemen ? shortest walk to summit ever. No viewsFergalh09/12/2014
I think there's also a higher point under some beech trees back near the junction.Herbert Anchovy14/11/2014
I think the OS spot height is the summit - it's in the scrap yard adjacent to the reservoir fence.Chris Peart25/10/2014
Rubbish but close by to reasonable hills. Dirty, muddy common looks about the highest.simon and co28/02/2014
An unremarkable hill top, not much of a view due to plenty of trees. The GR given for the top differs from the OS map's 264m spot height. On the ground we found the entrance gates to a water company reservoir gave us the best elevation reading on the Garmin at 266m, this was about 45m to the southeast of the spot height.jonglew29/09/2012
A late addition to the climbing plan. An interesting area.JohnStoneham25/03/2012
Parked at the phone box then had a long walk around many of the footpaths of this strange hamlet, taking in the post office, reservoir, village green and scrap yard.Dugswell214/09/2011

As per Clive.chrisbien08/05/2011
Surprisingly worth the visit. Its different. As TR re the Post Office. 250m walk each way.destaylor10/09/2010

What strange place. How does the Post Office survive I wonder. Saw the resevoir and photographed a few places, ate some lunch and moved on before my neck started to turn red.Father Ted13/02/2010
Best saved for a wet winter's day.Highest point seems to be the reervior although the area is man made.The small geen before the post office is the only open space. May well be the worst hill in this section lacking any sense of satisfaction.hodder28/11/2009
Don't go for any other reason than to bag it. The whole hamlet seems flat and the top could be anywhere. The marked top is in a sort of redneck scrap car place making walking round difficult and the highest point seems to be the reservoir behing a barbedclivevilla03/01/2009
