I park in lay-by on road to W then SSW along lane to track turning to Hill Dairy. The track at the road junction feels quite high on this levelish summit area. Short way along the farm track then back N over field to vague high point amongst root crop, Beet? An expansive levelish summit.RichardM23/09/2023
Pulled in at farm track entrance to SW, to discover Chard Equestrian Centre entrance on the other side. Ground here looks as high as anywhere. Then parked in layby on main road, over gate to trig.Minto05/07/2023
The dullest Hump of our holiday in Bridport/ IOW. From layby on A30 but walked up the Winsham Lane and accessed HP as described using the drive to Hill Clump. No bbw, one electric strand with insulator to get through on this route. We thought it could be justifiably claimed from the top of the drive 20 m from the Winsham Lane. With Petepwheeler05/06/2023
From large lay-by on A30. Gate into field along edge to next field and to trig then to possible HPs and up to farm track which could be as high. Back along road.PeterD18/09/2022
Parked in small layby on A30, E. of junction with minor road at ST 3971 0998 - Over gate (bit of barbed wire easily avoided) & headed E. along edge of first field in which there is a cereal crop - Continued along edge of second field which is pasture before heading S. to the summit GR; this lies about 100m S. of the trig point.

Large flat pasturecjo19/12/2020
Access from farm track as others describe. So flat the GPS was happy enough with not making over the field but of course one must. Not a terribly welcoming place. Fourth bag of the day.Pete West21/02/2020
Easy layby parking. Got here a bit early so it was still dark. Across field to trig. Others have said HP could be nearer Farm track so i walked to SW corner of field on to track and back up minor road to car.fosal2922/09/2019
Parked 39705 09980, over gate (some of the barbed wire is rolled back now, along non-road side of hedge across one field then across to trig in next field.clivevilla26/03/2019
Parked at edge of A30, lay-by before minor road to east. Gate with barbed wire easily crossed and 300m across field with Jenx and Bryhernordicstar16/05/2018

6/6 Heavy security now !Fergalh08/07/2015
Following a hospital appointment in Crewkerne, I wanted a quick walk. This was more of a run. I parked in a layby on the A30 walked South down the minor road and turned left along the farm track. This looked the highest point, I then headed through an open gate and ran to the trig point from where I ran North to the A30 climbing a barbed wire fence en route.isabelle28/01/2015
Field now surrounded with barbed wire, including gates-and with security signs by the farm too.Mark Sims06/01/2015
Visited trig, not new summit locationRobertP22/12/2014
Over a gate and up to the column. HuMP point not at the column but difficult to be exact even with GPS.arranc22/03/2014
From layby at nearby road junction.Not convinced trig is highest point, it's very flatcitygent11/06/2013
Luckily the ground was frozen today so not too muddy. I agree that the highest point seems to be at the corner of the farm road.Chris Peart12/03/2013
a soggy trample across a very squelchy field. moo cows were up by the farm, which is a little higher.. no views today from trig which is developing a moat..stig_nest19/11/2012
Summit, marked by a trig pillar, located in middle of a field 300m from a convenient access point at the junction of the A30 and a minor road running due south, possibly higher ground to S.jonglew01/07/2012
P on A30 nr jnct. Visited trig but the highest ground seems to be at entrance to farm road to the southchrisbien22/05/2012
Easy bag from road to NW.Dugswell210/03/2012
From small layby to West. Stroll across field.destaylor08/12/2010
Parking in a nearby layby then a simple walk through the mist across a grass field. Trig clearly not at the highest point.Herbert Anchovy06/10/2009
A dull and dank Autumn day with time on my hands from a work secondment in Crewkerne. Easy parking off the main road and a short walk across the field. The trig is not however visible from the road but easy to find.Anthony Vosper26/11/2008
