From the minor road junction to the NW also visited outcrop to the south.robertphillips06/03/2022
Parked on track at entrance to Banks Farm then simply followed the wall up to the summit. The little outcrop by the water tank seemed the natural high pointColin Crawford26/02/2022
Parked at the minor road junction (NX 8830 5907). Field gate into sheep pasture, couple of stone walls. Obvious high point at water tank,jonglew09/01/2021
Found a parking place NW of the hill just before reaching the B793 and walked back along minor road until an open gate allowed an easy walk through fields to the summit. The area adjacent the water tank looks to be the highest spot.summitter05/09/2019
