Could just make out summit wood through mist. Last gasp of daylight. Interesting village, Brailes - where brick meets stone. Some houses are stone with brick garden walls; others brick with stone garden walls.Wycombe Wanderer26/12/2019
Up Gilletts Lane. then god tracks along field edges all the way to due W of Spinney.GordonAdshead13/07/2019
Approached from Fant Hill, where there is an official layby by the bridleway. I followed the bridleway (on one of the estate's mown strips), then a wide track marked 'no footpath' through Jenny Swift plantn. Then mown field edges made the going on the private land very straightforward. I'd been a little apprehensive about this hill but thoroughly enjoyed it. A little wild patch at the top of the scarp around SP294391 was particularly nice, with abundant Marbled Whites and views to the Clee hills on a sunny day with a N breeze.pwheeler12/07/2019
4th tump of 11 on a 46.3km traverse from Goldicote bus. park to Banbury climbing Rough Hill,Idlicote hill and Castle Hill, rounding the Motte mound and heading South then turning West on a fp to jct @ SP30035 39764, continuing on track but difficulty encountered due to huge vehicles lumbering up and down the track as they were filled with the grass they were cutting on the hill above. Using the hedgerow margins and even rapeseed to hide in I made my way to SE to profile around past the barn and around to Highwall spinney with the Trig pillar and summit a few metres away. Nice atmospheric feel to it. I made a boo boo and went the wrong way heading North so had to cut across and headed SE next to Cawley's Covert to join a footpath heading into Lower Brailes, stopping at 'The George' for coffee and to re-fill my bottles again before continuing to Mine Hill...Dazingdale01/06/2019
From Upper Brailes, mostly on good tracks along field margins. Lovely summit copse and beech treesColin Crawford28/03/2019
A 7 km 3 Tump circular walk/ jog from Lower Brailes: Mine Hill, Brailles Hill, Castle Hill, ( the last being a new Tump I had spotted.) I Thought my ascent up Gillets Lane to the barn was about to be scuppered when I spotted someone I assumed was the lfarmer wandering the fields above, but something about his casual gait did not seem quite purposeful enough for a farmer. I pushed on to seek his permission, but bypassed him on other side of hedge. On way down he was still there and I worked out he was just a spectator out watching a lone hot air balloon which was drifting slowly by on this fine evening and about to touch down gently below.Chris Pearson27/03/2019

From parking at sharp bend near Burmington Grange. Bridleway, path and track to summit.rhalstead20/02/2018
From Brailes taking a direct line W along field margins to summit area. Island like summit with woodland and pheasant pens surrounded by band of maize and arable fields. The woodland include a band of Box(?) Difficult to say where the true summit is but the highest ground is an ancient earth bank with substantial beech trees and trig point.RichardM04/01/2018
Initially as described by PeterD but tricky at the top with much farming activity going on. Some high hedges were useful. Highest point seemed to be about 12m W of trig on bank by large trees.Aye Jimmy07/09/2017
As Herbert Anchovy. Missed the shooting sign as I made a slight error and crossed a field too far but found the hut and track up to summit wood. Late in the afternoon so no shooting although still plenty of pheasants. Maybe they were poor shots. Interesting summit feature amongst impressive hazel trees.Campbell Singer12/02/2017
From layby on Fant Hill initially along BW then along field edges and track to summit area. Gap through to trig in the copse. Lots of pheasants around.PeterD06/11/2016
Did the Gillets Lane route which was straightforward. Lots of pheasants about and a sign informing visitors that they're not welcome. Had to pass through a maize game cover crop to get to the trig on a bank on the edge of the copse. Three red kites and two buzzards overhead.Herbert Anchovy19/10/2016
Parked by Gillets Lane in Upper Brailes. Walked up Gillets Lane then followed the footpath. When it veered right across a filed I followed the field edge straight on until it met a track. I followed that to the end where there is a building then 90degrees right up to the coppice. There seemed to be a free area between the two crops on this last bit.clivevilla02/11/2015

Easy parking on main road to NE near end of Gilletts Lane. Followed Lane then paths then field edges. Summit copse 100% surrounded by large arable field - no walls or hedges to get there. Probably best in winter. Saw noone. Summit may as well be the trig point - had a good wander around the copse.destaylor28/02/2013
Followed lane and path up Gillett's Hill. Picked up a track and then a field boundary most of the way to the summit, which was in a copse. Walked on to Cherington, Margett's Hill, Whichford Wood and back over Mine Hill.JohnW09/06/2012

Approached in a zig way manner, avoiding going too near the woods as I coulf hear shooting, keeping to feild boundaries virtually all the way to the top. Passed a group of 6 deer with fine antlers. Mistly today so resricted views. Parked on verge near Birmington GrangeFather Ted17/02/2007
