Short walk up public footpath from just W of pub in Thurstonland. Trig on top. Fine viewpoint.Aye Jimmy02/03/2013
The road signs call this Cold Hill. Parking on the road south of the summit is very limited... Perhaps a couple of well pulled-in cars only. Short scramble up the hill to the open field and then direct to the trig point via two easy to cross barbed wire fences. One alongside the trig requires more daring/agility though.moorsman27/01/2013
