A hill in name but ........!
Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  22 Mar 2015
Park off road on the grass verge and, at C5035716815 A, go through a gate and up the left edge of a field to a fence junction some 250m along where a raised ditch goes off on the right. The top of the hill lies across this ditch in an adjacent flat grassy field. Up and back takes less than 15 minutes, with a minimal rise from the starting point.
