Sunny February day walking all the Breiddens. Walked up from the east, over the top and them down the west side. Pretty exposed on the top but that didn't matter on a sunny day.brandybordeaux25/02/2019
Circuit of the Breidden Hills with Lindsey. Parked near Criggion at grid ref SJ 2944 1491. Route was forest tracks to Breidden Hill (Rodney's Column). South to New Pieces (summit in trees, bracken and brambles). South through woods to road then to small car park at at eastern foot of Middletown, SJ 2969 1305. Walked up to Moel Y Golfa summit and back down by same route. Then up Middletown Hill, over summit and down to col below Bulthy Hill. Footpath down to Belle Eisle Farm, very muddy track then bridleway and forestry roads back to carpark. Cloudy-bright, dry, quite a stiff breeze. Distance 5.7 miles with 1,935 feet accumulated ascent.Skip13/01/2019

Straightforward from Bryn which is WSW and where there is car parking - and a very good hill. With TJBtrimarc205/07/2017
The three main Breidden peaks are all so distinctive and fantastic. Middletown Hill has an ambience that reminds me of the Lawley and cart ,,Caradoc, both of which are visible a few Hills over. This Hill has a great ridge like shape, and it is nice to look down at kempsters Hill from here full stoWalked around the whole Breidden range today, a long time goal. It was a wonderful day would (in sandals) so much variety including Rocky ascent, grassland, Forest, beautiful Gorse fields and the gorgeous country lanes. I would say that it is hard to construct a logical route around the three main peaks and there is a mixture in the area of clearly marked paths and public access but also defensive slash aggressive signs warding away walkers. Superb views all day, still weather and warm April Sunshine, such a great day out. Solo.tumpawumpa19/04/2017

From the more westerly of the two footpaths on the road to the north. There is no car parking by the easterly one. The path goes diagonally on to the ridge then doubles back to the summit. Great views.clivevilla16/12/2012

From Criggion, via Belle Eisle Farm aka 'cow shit corner'.apricorum18/03/2011
Parked at Criggion, couldn't find any of the field paths north so had to walk the very busy road over the R.Severn walked along the riverbank to a path from Pool Quay, no path signs on bridge across the river and along Watery Lane: the wettest lane from hell, finally got to the hills, with no footpaths signs we guessed our way over Moel Y Golfa, Middletown Hill and up to Rodneys Pillar and back to Criggion. They really need to spend money on footpaths and signs around here! 16.3 miles.DanTrig13/11/2010
Nice to see this hill finally on the database, its the best of the group :-) Parked at SJ297130 there is a great warning sign saying walking in the country side can be dangerous !heavyhorses27/05/2009
