O: My GPS recorded this position as higher than the current summit and more natural ground whilst walking along the bridleway line. Also suggested name change to Winter Hill as per the historic OS Six inch mapping

This was the second of my two summits tonight, having walked over from Pool Hill via the wood. I think I've been up here before but couldn't be sure, so nice to revisit and specifically seek out the summit. Lots of bluebells on the lane tonight.meltdiceburg11/05/2023

From Hoyland. Lots of nettles on the field edge.RobertP03/06/2018
Parked at The Cherry Tree in High Hoyland and walked a long the road in the dark. Sunrise half an hour away. Footpath not signed but steep steps were a giveaway. Edge of field and then along path in wood. Then back into edge of field, thus avoiding steep bank. Still dark on return.Campbell Singer29/11/2017
Walked up from Clayton West, then on to Pool Hill.IanHHill30/05/2017

3rd hill of 5 today and this hill completes Barnsley! Started at Dodworth station & Climbed Dodworth hill then Pool hill, easily along road then onto footpath But Climbed straight to field edge and at highest point went over into wooded area and i think the highest point is beside a thick holly bush next to wall about 7metres from field edge next to depression Other high points Also explored and a few trees Have lumps close that Could be as high. GPS reading 222m. Great old sycamore tree close to summit.Dazingdale08/10/2016

A mini cliff down to footpath from field edge top. To the south lies the C18th Canon Hall stately home and park that was developed to its grand proportions through the riches gained by the Spencer family from the iron and coal industry of South Yorkshire.Chris Pearson13/08/2015
glorious Autumnal day, cool,calm, dry think the highest point maybe a couple of hundred metres to NE at a lump in the path. done from High Hoyland with Pool Hilljoseph mitchell05/11/2014
Parked briefly on pavement at top of hill near start of bridleway. Few metres along this then up banking. Highest point in undergrowth on raised bank at side of tilled field. Beware 20' drop back to bridleway!Aye Jimmy12/04/2014
Verge pull-in almost opposite the start of the bridleway. A short hop along the path to the summit, although the top is hard to distinguish. Certainly not in the field as this slopes upwards to the path through the woods.moorsman20/02/2014
