6th hill of 8 on a 36km traverse from Stone to Bicester climbing Burn Hill, Waddesdon Hill, Ashendon, Dorton and North Hill, continuing along the road descending and then ascending to take fp then heading direct for the top. I explored the high ground near the Trig point and then went over to near the transmission tower (just lower). I used the track to head back onto the lane past Piddington wood heading for Arncott...Dazingdale06/07/2019
About the only hill on our route from Swindon to Milton Keynes. And a good one for views. On this visit the trig was surrounded by cows with calves.Newton Maximus05/05/2019
Roadside parking. Footpath from SE across grass to trig. Solo.Dangerous Dave10/03/2019

From Piddington Church south on the trail up the hill and to the summit, returning by minor roads. Solo.marktrengove12/11/2018
With NS. Parked by the road high point at the track junction. Very quick bag. Strange weather : dry but a stiff southerly breeze, ridiculously warm for the time of year. Lovely viewpoint.Owen B14/10/2018

Must be one of the easiest HuMPs around. Didn't realise the woodwork in the undergrowth next to summit was a bench till I read the logs!Aye Jimmy25/08/2018
From Brill. Extensive views!twg2704/02/2018
ROW, gate, thorough the sheep to the trig. Bench now in nettles. Views in all directions.tim74703/10/2016

The smallest of SSSI's measuring just 50m x 50m lies to west of the trig. This is a geological 'uncertainty' with 'problematic sandstones' not to mention sandy ironstones, of uncertain age and depositional circumstances. A specialist Cretaceous / Jurassic transition expert is sought to unravel this geological conundrum - any takers?Chris Pearson02/10/2016
With K. In dark. Easily found from footpath to SE. Bench has been put near trig which suggests access may be welcome. Stung my leg in dark!Ashley29/09/2016
Parked at Piddington Church and followed pleasant ROW (NB: wet ground in places) to near summit- just off ROWs but evidently no problem accessing it. Extensive views on a cool showery day, though the relatively low altitude means you can't pick out many distant hills. Back by quiet lanes. Brother, Pete, says by using paths to E you pass local butterfly reserves.pwheeler18/04/2016
Short walk from road, initially along FP. Gate into field with Trig, was open.PeterD31/03/2016
Lovely view, old wooden seats just off the PROW by the trig point.Swindon Bagger16/01/2016
From Sjimbloomer10/10/2015
The trig point is well sited in the middle of a grass field and near a path, but the ground near the road appears higher so I covered both. Part of a long bike ride from Haddenham station over 5 Tumps and returning to Haddenham for the journey back to Londontrimarc205/08/2015
Field of recently cut grass, highest point just NW of trig point, excellent views. Easy access via footpath from road.RichardM02/08/2015
9/10 Quick bag for penultimate one of day. Short walk from gate to trig pillar in centre of fieldFergalh07/03/2015
Three huge benches by trig. Nice for a sit down to enjoy the view, if you can avoid the sheep poo.ngthack22/08/2014
Took path from SE - easier parking on verge.Chris Peart06/08/2014
From track to farm, just room to get off road in car. Pleasant trig / views from top. En route to Welwyn. Brill hill next.nordicstar15/05/2014

Walk along road from Brill. Past a windmillChinnockC04/06/2012
Parked just passed entry to Muswell Hill Manor, through gate to trig next to cross country jumps. Super views on lovely morning and my completion of 11 HuMPs in 24 hrs from 10:20 on 05/03/12 to 10:15 06/03/12.Dugswell206/03/2012
With DP from Cambridge doing all the Chiltern HuMPs in a day. A surprisingly pleasant hill with surprisingly pleasant views - we parked at 640151 and did triangle along both rights of way. Trig is in field full of horse jumps.Mark Jackson18/02/2012
HuMP-bagging day trip to the Chilterns with Mark Jackson. Parked on the verge at the end of the farm drive SW of summit.davidpettit8418/02/2012
Easily accessible, the trig point can be seen within a few metres of leaving the road.JohnStoneham04/12/2011
Parked near track to Muswellhill Grange. Followed track for a short distance to gate leading to the field. Visited trig and walked around. 16:05chrisbien04/12/2011
