It's the Sweeney guv! Wish I had been in the flying squad (in a literal sense) for this one.TK17/10/2023
Space for one car up lane, then up track to house at top.PeterD10/08/2022
Space for a car to park to S at start of ROW. Up ROW, then unmarked drive. Went to actual summit. Only the final 20m is in sight of the house. As there is no footpath sign at the point where the drive leaves the ROW, if I had been caught, I would have claimed to be looking for the footpath!PGCE23/07/2022
Difficult to reach summit as on private land, but interesting walk via Dolgoch nature reserve and old tramway.Pjb10016/12/2021
Parked in rough layby SJ 2792 2549. The summit is by the front door (NOT on the drive)carole engel01/11/2020
Walked from Sweeney Hotel. Main road dangerous but hill gives good views. 4 mile round trip.Andrew Pearson08/09/2020
Parked well up the lane and walked last 150 mts up driveway to just outside house and made a quick exit. Felt I was invading personal space.Campbell Singer24/08/2018
Getting dark and loitering near isolated houses could get one arrested or shot! A car was parked on drive at what seemed to be highest point next to house.Aye Jimmy15/10/2017
This hill taught me how unobvious summits can be. Hitherto I had assumed that any 'hill' that one could 'bag' had to be out in the sticks, not on somebody's driveway, or indeed, master bedroom.nwormgage19/05/2017
Difficulty wasn't a crude problem. Automobile utilised 90% of the way. An entirely wasted house rests atop. Views tree like, experience gamely. Epitaph: pleasant tumping for all the family.tumpawumpa19/05/2017
Easy walk up from road as far as garden fence !heavyhorses07/05/2016
Must have been past a hundred previous times before venturing up the lane. Summit approach all on very good surface. Driveway on drive with bonnet open.with Laura.w. 4/10stig_nest04/05/2016
With stig_nest. A mountain this is not! Good short track up to the high pointLaura.W04/05/2016
Parked to the NE and walked up the access road and across a field. It is potentially rather embarrassing as the high point is fairly close to a house on their drive.clivevilla23/12/2015
From ENE, RoW passes R of last house in lane. HP in front of a house. Apparently it turns out this was my 10,000th summit on hill-bagging - I could have chosen a more auspicious one!RHW14/03/2015
A clear misnomer and there's a house on the highest bit. A wander from Sweeney Fen Nature Reserve at SJ 274 249.summitsup23/01/2014
