Adequate parking on grass verge next to radio station. Visited trig pillar first as guaranteed access. Then crossed road to visit county hp. Crop of sweetcorn in field so walked east along bridleway level with summit and spot height returned along bridle way and entered field following verge east level with spot height on other side of thick hedge. No access through crops. Walked North along adjacent boundary getting as close to spot height as possible without damaging crop.SteveSmith22/07/2020
From the adjacent roadside. Parking in a manner that isn’t blocking anyone’s way is difficult but possible.lenman08/08/2019
1st of 4 Tumps on a 28km route from Mickleton to Stratford. Train to Birmingham then walk to Moor Street, followed by train to Stratford and Bus to start. I dropped into Hidcote gardens 1st then used the bridleway to get close to the start with a quick hop over the gate, followed by a walk around including the edges. Descent as outward but then took the Heart of England Way heading for Meon hill.. ..Dazingdale22/06/2019
Parked in Mickleton and followed path past Hidcote Manor. Continued until directly S of trig, before bagging this and then continued across the road to the HP, which was accessed by climbing over metal gate. Good views from trig point but poor from HP.Wheelsy02/06/2019
Visited the trig but not the highpoint years ago. HP in field, accessible via tractor track. Trig has better views! Parked by aerial.Denise 27/05/2019

On own. Early morning visit. Parked on grassy area by telecomms station. Across road, through gate and into ploughed field. Fortunately no crops but could be difficult at another time of year. Whole field looks similar height but GPS helped locate exact 10 fig OS grid ref. No feature. Low cloud meant nothing to see! Went over to trig point on wall as well.Beeliner21/03/2019
With Jenx and Bryher from the lovely Hidcote gardens, not open sadly. Picked up the trig too, much nicer viewpoint. Good circular walk and Section 39 Humps complete.nordicstar03/01/2019

Walked up from Hidcote as others. Wandered along various field edges but criss-crossing the young crop to justify an extra inch or two seemed unjustified. Visited the trig on the way back.milimana11/05/2018

County top outing, find the telecommunications transmitter on the Erbington to Ilmington lane and park on the verge.The trig point behind the transmitter is 259 meters but in the field on the other side of the road or down the path by the side of it there is an extra 2 meters time to get the GPS out!WAYNE ROWLETT16/08/2015

Parked on the verge of narrow lane next to transmitters. From the bridleway E. of the transmitters climbed over the metal gate & walked about 50m in a NE direction to the unmarked top which is in the historic county of Gloucestershire. I then walked about 100m E. along the bridleway (the historic boundary) to ensure I visited the county top of the historic county of Warwickshire. (Solo)gerrybowes15/10/2013
start from a small track near telecoms tower. I believe the highpoint is about 50m NE of tower.mcallmar04/10/2013

Walk from Upper Quinton via Meon Hill hillfort, then up from Mickleton past Hidcote gardens. Snow flurries, but pretty good views on a grey day. There is a boundary stone near the summit, erected for the jubilee. The summit itself seems to be the field to the east of the transmitter.thesweetcheat23/02/2013

It is close by a lane: westward out of Ilmington, watch carefully for the tiny lane to the left. Stop by the transmitter station. The trig point is behind the station but is not the highest point. The historic county top is on the path running to the east from the transmitter station.AlexanderHoward13/10/2012
