From Carding Mill valley up past Rectory Woodgreboicus24/12/2020
From car pk on Cunnery Rd. Wasn't sure about accessing via Old Rectory open space so carefully followed RoWs shown on map, then trodden path to summit. Cairn was just big enough for Pete and I to shelter behind and eat packed breakfast. Nice hill, fine views of surrounding hills and valleys.pwheeler26/09/2020

Bodbury Hill - Long Mynd - Yearlet. Very muddy path over Long Synalds but dry from thereon. Quick steep pull from the col with ponies. Idled by the cairn for a while, felt like Spring is on its way in the warm sun. Climbed an attractive little knoll in the Cunnery on descent.Jake99417/02/2018
