Conveniently on drive from Wigmore Rolls to my brother's house in Warwick. Waited for thunderstorm to pass at track to water tower, which I visited after the Trig Pt and clearly higher field corner. Then did what I did last time I was in Broad Heath- had a pint of Batham's in The Fox.pwheeler05/05/2023
Parked at same place as las time. Long outstanding revisit after logging almost 2 years to the day using my peakbagger App, only to find the summit had been relocated on the other side of the B4204, near the trig pillar. I had noticed the trig back in 2021 but as I am not a trig bagger I did not bother to visit. Two lessons going forward:- 1.) Always visit nearby trig pillar. 2.) Always double check location in hill-bagging.mntainman21/04/2023
Parked in Bell Lane near the Tally-Ho Inn. FP, then quick diversion to the trig and summit.Newton Maximus13/07/2022
Just had to visit the relocated top. Trig behind the hedge as pointed out by a nice horse.Play2End30/10/2021
Because I was passing. Not particularly satisfying. Having stamped around the possibilities the highest bit of ground I could find was in the SE corner next to the gate at the end of a track - within a few metres of SO 66429 65531 according to my gps beep.summitsup14/06/2021
Nice straight forward hill. Parked on roadside near gate to water tower, up access track and walked around to SE corner of fenced area which looked to be the highest. Did not bother with the trig as not a trig bagger!!!!. Maybe I should be, or check for changes before setting off. Hence the white triangle and unchecked summit. Apparently ground in field corner near trig pillar within 240m contour ring is a few centimetres higher than spot near water tower within a large 245m contour ring. Return visit due sometime maybe!mntainman16/04/2021

Through gate to water tower. High point on grass in sheep field. Solo.Dangerous Dave14/09/2019
8th and final top of the day, after Kyre Green. Parked up in pub car park then upto water tower track, into fenced area then across field to road and then back along the main road, briefly also exploring the high ground just South of the Trig pillar. Returned to the pub for a coffee although I must say I didnt get a very friendly vibe in there.Dazingdale19/08/2019

Track to SE corner of water tower, road to East as high. Realised I had been here before many years ago, when I saw village hall.PeterD14/08/2016

One of the easier bags - parked on the road, hopped the gate and walked along to the interesting water tower. Bagged Hurcott Farm trig next, 4th of 10 Worcs trigs bagged today.jonglew15/06/2013

Somewhere in a flattish field between the road and a water tower. Boring and no reason to go there except to "bag" it.clivevilla01/07/2008
