Fovant to Tisbury. 2nd attempt to summit. From gate off ROW to SSE (overlooked by farmhouse) - cattle pasture to the E had serious electric fencing in situ. Descended via N corner gate then slid under fence into steepish woodland below.Smudge10/03/2023
From North up parish boundary. Steep wooded embankmentcjo21/04/2022
Limited parking W of Swallowcliff. From start of ROW, directly up through wood. Visited summit and nearby hedge bank (which seemed to be higher). Onwards to High Wood.PGCE04/03/2021
From the N, followed the edge of the field & then into the woods, straightforward slanting climb following the line of the pasrich boundary as shown on the OS map. Flat summit area, wandered around a bit to cover all possibles. Part of a 18 mile loop over the hills of the Vale of Wardour & beyond.DanMaisieBex13/09/2020
A clear night perfect for star watching. very muddy ascent from Swallowcliffe mainly on RsOW. Summit could be in grassy fields either side of a hedge. Ice on windscreen on return, Richard covered in mud having attempted a bath in it.Denise 12/01/2020
Last of the day on wonderfully dark starry evening. From Swallowcliffe initially on field paths via Green Close Copse then over pasture to ill defined summit. Convenient field gate at NW end of hedge to move between fields.RichardM12/01/2020
From Swallowcliffe on paths initially then across field to gap in hedgerow and on to HP.PeterD27/09/2019
Wiltshire glistening under dazzling snow. Main roads clear but side roads sheets of ice. Minus 6 overnight. Left car at top of hill to avoid cresta run road descent - bad enough walking down it in boots. All very tranquil but hot work ploughing a furrow through the soft snow in summit pastures. Cows inquisitive, first they get snow to puzzle over and now a stranger in their field to investigate - but the farmer had already been out with hay for them, which kept them occupied. Elaborate crop circles were once a big overnight activity at Ansty with the ‘made by aliens’ theory debunked by good old YouTube giving away the secrets. Neither a circle or a mystery but my tracks left satisfying patterns to and fro in the snow here today.Chris Pearson03/02/2019
Parked in Swallowcliffe by the start of the path. Followed paths to begin with and then across fields. Handy crossing point in the final hedgerow to access the summit field.Herbert Anchovy08/10/2018
Loop from Tisbury station (day trip from London): High Wood, Donhead Hill, West End Hill, Win Green, White Sheet Hill, Ansty Hill, Castle Ditches. Followed field edge from right of way ESE of summit - no fences to climb.Mark Jackson21/10/2017
Climbed from the W. - along field edge and up through the wood. There was a large roebuck grazing in the summit field, I got within 25m before it fled.Chris Peart30/07/2015
On a round of Wilts tumps: Ansty Hill, High Wood, Donhead Hill and West End Hill. Parking roadside in Swallowcliffe (very limited). Up through woodland strip to hill top cattle pastures.jonglew27/11/2014
