1st of 4 hills on a 14km circuit from Great Witley, parking in a cul-de-sac off Stourport road then walking along main road to take fp up Nne then curving round to take Fp Nw then NE to join main ridge heading to summit. I visited ground either side of the fence to be sure. Lovely views across to Walsgrove hill, my next target, following the Geopark way...Dazingdale25/11/2023

Final hill of four, after Woodbury, Rodge Hill and Walsgrove. After a lovely morning it snowed as I was heading past the clock tower. A really nice hill, although the views are restricted by the woods.thesweetcheat02/04/2022

10km circuit from Great Witley Village Hall: Abberley Hill - Walsgrove Hill - Woodbury Hill.Tony J30/05/2021
Parked near salt bin on Wynniates Way. Steep woodland path 100m to the west on the Worcestershire Way takes you all the way to the summit. Option of a steeper hillbaggers path half way up which would be rude to not use. Descended down the Worcestershire Way taking opportunity to walk over high ground to the west which seems to be lower anyway.mntainman16/04/2021
