from Bury Ditches CP to E of hill. Summit has direction finder.IanHHill10/07/2024
Very easy bag just up and down from Bury Ditches car park. Good path to summit and toposcope. Pleasant views of the surrounding area and towards the Radnor Forest in Wales. A few people about. 85m ascent. 4th hill of the day. Earlier we had bagged Burrow, Wart Hill and Hopesay Hill and afterwards we drove to and bagged High Vinnalls and Bringewood. Cloudy but the sun shined on this hill!DanTrig19/08/2023

Excellent well preserved iron age hill fort offering fine views N. Corndon Hill particularly clear. Highest point is the concentric mound NW of topograph but no doubt man made. I wonder if they had 'iron shovels' to help build this impressive structure.RichardM31/03/2016
From very substantial car park. Was suprised how busy. Easy walk on well made track. Top is on top of rampart near the topograph.stig_nest29/12/2015

Short walk up from good woodland parking area to E.jonglew19/05/2014
Started from Brockton village and apart from some overgrown paths, this is a fine walk. On the top of Sunnyhill, there are ironage ditches which made up the fort's defences. These are impressive and well worth the walk. Hazy day so views not good and the walk back to Brockton was all road, so this is not a good start point if you want to walk off road. The long road to finish would put me off that route again. Navigation very straightforward.Steve W28/09/2013
Track from car park.Alan Caine03/05/2013
Bishop's Castle to Clun. Steady plodding along main tracks that were snowed up/icy.Smudge30/03/2013
From the carpark via forestry track/Shropshire Way to the South West-active logging, care needed, into hillfort by SW entrance, impresive ramparts, nice topograph-shame about the vandalism, cloud&sun, dry&warm, great panoramic views.apricorum06/08/2012
Good car park to E but road to it is narrow. There's a direct parth up to fort from car park. Grabbed geocache then visited summit on the inner wall. I agree with given summit coords.Father Ted19/02/2012
