Easy route to a fine viewpoint.
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman  3 Nov 2011
Start at B740 080 A and go along the farm lane SW to a bungalow where permission can be sought (and at time of writing readily given by the lady living in it) to park and gain access to the hill B73979 07715 B. Go around left of the bungalow and follow the fence line SW directly and steeply uphill. Where fence ends continue up to gain the top, marked by a trig pillar B73652 07293 C, for a 365 degree panorama. Return by way of ascent. Short walk up and down in forty minutes.
