Recommend pipe insulation for new bwb fence (and trees planted in front). Seems mean thing to do, to prevent a handful of visits a year.Martin R30/05/2023
Quick hop over from adjoining field/ footpath to bag trig and nearby HP. Excellent Severn views and wintery sunset. Unfriendly signs.Denise 06/01/2021
Field paths from the NE past the huge ancient oak at Wick Court. Hardly a friendly welcome into the summit field with 'Keep Out' signs along the N fence line. High point unmarked in pasture to SE side of trig. good views.RichardM06/01/2021
From Overton, as others.PGCE05/01/2021
Footpath from Overton goes directly to enormous oak at crest of ridge. Summit and trig lie in field on other side of bwf with private notices.Aye Jimmy09/06/2019

A nice jaunt around the Arlingham horseshore - lots of blackberries everywhere.eilidh_hikes06/09/2018
As milimana. Good views of a very low River Severn. Tide out and weeks of drought.Campbell Singer17/07/2018
Showery day, walking up from the Ship Inn (and then back via the Severn Way). Apparently the actual summit is not quite by the trig point so we walked around a bit to be sure of a legitimate bag!AngiLala30/07/2017
On way to funeral in Bristol of David LEGG aged 100 who completed the Skye Ridge in 1953.GordonAdshead19/06/2017
Bagged as YSM612 Overton. This one was the leveller and we are both now on 50 YOSMs for the weekend. Relatively easy stroll to the pillar on the footpath between the two houses, GPSr decided to play up so just had to look about for the pillar which didn't look as if it was on the high point.thejackrustles24/04/2017

Parked by farm in Overton and up PROW. Lovely views for such a small hill, makes a nice change from recent forested tumps.milimana12/03/2017

Simple walk up the PROW from Overton where it is possible to park by the road.Swindon Bagger18/02/2016

From Overton. Summit short distance from trig point. Gives great perspective of how much the Severn meanders.PeterD23/05/2015
Parking on Overton Lane, short walk up, mainly on public paths. Lovely small hill with big views over River Severn and N to May Hill. Top seems to be short distance due N of trig pillar.jonglew03/11/2014
