Parked near railway bridge, walked up road and then along track by cottage. Gate into pasture and an open gate into field with water tank. Also checked out alternative top.PeterD18/09/2022
Parked in layby W of Coker Wood Cottage. Track up inside wood, then over broken gap in wall, and over bwf (with the aid of a tree) into summit field. Visited summit by cistern, then to alternative highpoint via gates.PGCE04/06/2022
Tracks through wood from near railwaybridge are easy walking although signs indicating poaching takes place. The track ends abruptly and in a bramblefest. Not pleasant at all. Returned down track at side of wood/field via cottage.cjo29/12/2021
Every gate has (NO ENTRY WORKING FARM). Anyway parked in a layby near Coker Wood Cott. There is a track along the inside edge of Coker Wood. At the end of the stone wall is a single gate giving easy access to a pasture next to the pasture with the cistern. The twin HP to the south looked higher but my GPS gave both the same height.fosal2922/09/2019
Up from W to cistern summit. Then south to twin summit in paddock, whose HP is the Somerset side of the hedge, not as per os spot height. This doesn't appear to be a Dorset hill at all.RHW26/02/2016
Walked up from minor road to W. Circular concrete water cistern at HP.jonglew22/10/2015
Judging by the signs on every gate the farmer is of the GOML persuasion. Ignored the signs and parked close to gate to the N and followed track along the edge of Coker Wood. Had to climb over dry stone wall, battle through a thin curtain of scrub and climb a bw fence to access the field with the circular concrete thing. Whether it's a nuclear fallout shelter, prison for abducted Albanians or reservoir I couldn't say but the efforts to keep people of this land made me suspect the worst.Herbert Anchovy29/04/2015
