From road to the east. Quite a lot of cattle and one field, near the top, that had a vociferous bull and a lot of cows and calves. The bull made it clear he did not want me in his field but I was able to walk around the outside of the field.clivevilla30/06/2020

1st of 5 tumps (plus a potential new one) on a route from Middle Mayfield (Swift bus from Derby) to Leek, 28km with 986m cum. ascent/descent. Conditions, mild with drizzle. I climbed in and out of Stanton wood to Stanton village continuing on fp N of Hobble Wood, S of Softlow wood to then intercept footpath near 365m spot height and from there to access land and the summit- misty, starting to clear. Nice feel. Walked all bumps nearby then descended Wnw curving around perimeter of crop field, to climb over wall to gain permissive path on flanks of Wardlow Quarry en-route to Cauldon Lowe, now in glorious sunshine.Dazingdale17/02/2018

From road S. No issues. Short grass,stiles and gates. Sheep, goats,cows and horses. Trig pillar is in good nick. A very very fine view. Power station out Derby way as well as the Rugely one. Not even that clear an evening. Came back over the tumulii tops.stig_nest19/05/2017

Parking: Near start of p/f, grass verge on very minor road SK 10440 46299.David Evans13/02/2017
Easy parking to the east where the path starts (alt 1102 ft). All the open access is pasture land which appears rather confusing!. Follow the footpath across several fields until the right angled bend in the fenceline NE of the summit. A gate here gives easy access to the summit near the trig. 1.46 miles return. 30 minutes, 187 ft ascent.moorsman20/01/2017

A delightful walk up from Ellastone, via Wootton and the access land. To be able to see from the Wrekin to Kinder and from Charnwood Forest to the Welsh mountains, all from one spot, is a hell of a view!DanHolme06/08/2013
