Walked from lay-by near Foxbank Farm on Hollin Lane. South to summit and then returning via Wind Farm and Lower Pethills.hannah&steven04/06/2020
Parked on grass verge just above cattle grid on minor road at 9412 6741 - SW along A54 for about 120m & then along farm track to fence corner - Left track & up over sheep pasture through a series of pedestrian gates to the BT Tower enclosure. Unable to get inside, but the braced disused concrete fence post (noted by DG) on N. side at SJ 93373 67721 appears to be the accessible high point. (S)gerrybowes17/07/2019
Walked as part of Gritstone Trail .. Combined with Teggs NoseD SID01/05/2019
A Jaunt with Gareth - from Bosley Locks we ramble to Gawsworth then climb onto Croker Hill and Bosley Minn making our return along the edge of Bosley reservoir and the Hollins (past the horses).briandavies27/10/2018
Short walk from grassy parking at Golden slack 941 673, cross road & up easy to follow paths to top/compound. gaps repaired so some effort required to get inside. overcast but dry & mild.apricorum28/08/2018
Bosley Minn and Croker Hill circular. Evening walk on a freezing night for the time of year. Needed a curry to warm up afterwards.Lazylizzie29/04/2018
After drive by debacle of Bosley Minn decided to make a bit more of a walk with this un. Parked near the cattle grid for Croker farm. Theres a quarry lorry park area which was open today. I risked getting locked in but got away with it. Easy tracks all way to the Comms compound pretty much walked around it. One or two holes in the mesh fence which have been ziptied up.stig_nest14/04/2018

Gate wide open, no-one around, so quickly went to highest point on both sides of the building.Martin R05/11/2017
Summit fairly definitely within the compound, so did the best I could along the fenceColin Crawford08/06/2017

From Bosley MinnJohn Eley25/12/2016
Christmas morning hike. Bosley Minn, Croker Hill [Sutton Common], Gawsworth Common. No time for Whitemoor Hill...access difficult on approach. Parked just beside Minn End Lane beside A54 just on grass, let on to two local farmers passing before leaving. With John & Daisy. Clear sunny day and felt very warm.Rotorslap25/12/2016
Walked up from A54. Didn't get in to the compound but decided to claim it as, if there is any ground inside that it is higher, it is very likely man made. Walked around the perimeter of the compound. This one is also a Dewey's Notable Hill Top.clivevilla13/12/2016
Managed to blag my way into compound and to HP.Campbell Singer03/11/2016
Parked at SJ 94109 67310 by first gate on Minn-End-Lane. Combined walk with Bosley Minn. Not sure where highest point was, so tramped around the perimeter of the compound. A very leisurely 1 hour 20 minutes to bag both hills. With Julie.David Evans10/09/2016

15.35 my friend Lisa wouldn't come for a raj here. 'Giving out far too much poisonousmicrowaves', she said!!vegibagger15/02/2015
Spent 20mins driving back and forth on A54 without finding safe parking. In end drove up the access road to the mast, parked about 200m from it. No-one at home it seemed. Went all around outside of compound, not sure whether N side or S side was higher, GPS said same for both. Maybe higher inside compound.Aye Jimmy15/07/2014
Parked at end of Dollards Farm track. Walked along main road NE to footpath which goes all the way to the summit. Should have walked up from where parked but put off by the Private Road sign.destaylor27/02/2014
Previous ascents.ngthack14/01/2014
Parked on grass verge above cattle grid on minor road at SJ 94120 67393. (Same parking for Bosley Minn). Summit feature is braced disused concrete fencepost outside northern end of compound at SJ 93375 67725. The 'new' fence directly behind it is much higher. It is impossible to get inside compound but I doubt there is any higher natural ground inside.David Gradwell19/05/2013
Went over Croker Hill during a walk from Congleton to Sutton Lane Ends. Interesting to see the BT tower up close having seen it so often in the distance.dubmill04/05/2013
I too parked just behind the cattle grid 50m away. Looks by far the best solution to a quick up and down without getting killed on the main road. Scruffy top with two barking Labradors nearby.simon and co23/04/2013
There really is no safe parking on the main road. It is not worth the risk of trying to park half on the road, half on the verge. If you turn south about 50 metres east of the access path. . . Up the Wincle Minn road .... You might get a park immediately after the first cattle grid. I managed it okay. Well sign posted path to the summit.moorsman29/01/2013
A dull hill with no redeeming features, only climbed to count the 'bag'. Not worth the minimal effort to climb it again.JohnStoneham06/01/2013
On a circular walk from Buxton, that had previously taken in Tegg's Nose. Summit is visible from right the way into Staffordshire so it was nice to finally climb it.DanHolme11/08/2012
along gritstone trail from rushton spencer. very overgrown in placesngrobbie11/08/2012
parked opp track to top from S. quick up and down.gav77728/06/2012
A very long walk starting from the village of Bottom of the oven in the Peak district National park through Macclesfield forest climbing to get back onto the Gritstone trail at Teggs nose country park. The trail runs over the top of Croker Hill, I was lashed by rain and wind during the walk. I finished in Congleton that dayDazingdale03/06/2012
Longish walk from Roach End. Summit is inside security fence for transmitter mast but ground just outside fence just to the north seemed almost level with it, so that'll do!davidpettit8431/03/2012
No where to safly park on A54 so doubled back to Lowerhouse (SJ 939697) and followed RoW to the top.heavyhorses27/12/2011
Climbed via the pleasant north ridge over the top of Hill of Rossenclowes. Superb views in the western arc. You can see this hill with it's huge tower for miles over the Cheshire Plain.Jake99409/04/2008
