Parked by cattle grid to the west. Did the North Top first and then Norbury Hill. Met a grumpy farmer or gamekeeper on his quad who acted as if he was disappointed I was on a footpath so he had no excuse to shout at me.Herbert Anchovy20/11/2019

Parked by Norbury Church, nice walk up doing the two tops.heavyhorses14/07/2016
A thoroughly enjoyable circuit with Laura.W. found a spot to park at the bottom of Black Rhadley and walked down very quiet lanes to Shropshire Way. Good path up an ancient avenue of beech trees showing the scars of many a storm. Climbed the 395m top before hopping over the b/wire to access true summit. Unmarked. The 395m has a better position as is often the case its not always the summit which is the best spot. This hill deserves your boots though. Continued to North top.stig_nest17/03/2016

Linley Hill and Norbury Hill from Cold Hill Farm to the north.clivevilla21/07/2015
Quite a long day walk linking 400m tops from Fishpool w Lesley and Betty the dog. 1st day of a mercifully dry half term week after the awful floods across the country the week before. Hired a cottage nr Clun with Nick & Ann.Chris Pearson16/02/2014
No easy, convenient roadside parking so drive to where the Shropshire Way meets the side road to the south west. Ample room to pull in safely off the road. easy amble to the summit. After leaving the main track look for a field gate to the right. If you go through it it cuts off the longish loop via the ROWmoorsman13/05/2013
attractive hill & view; pasture. via FP from SW; park by CG RHW19/10/2003
On walk with Pete: Nipstone car pk- Nipstone Rock- Black Radley Hill- Linley- Linley Hill- Stiperstones- Perkins Bench- Nipstone car pk. We bagged this pasture summit but the walking hereabouts was best on the paths, which keeps to the main spine of Linley Hill. Changeable, some rain, but usable weather.pwheeler17/03/2002
