A fairly straightforward and easy ascent of a really dull top. The starting point is a farm gate and there is parking for one car without blocking the gate. To the left of the gate is a quad track.Follow the quad track up into a gently sloping grassy field, taking you up to about 360m. The track swings NW through some rougher ground and makes walking easier. Eventually it peters out as you approach some trees. Here, at about 400m elevation, you will see two gateposts with no gate but with wire strung between them. Cross the fence on the left and follow another fence SW for about 1km. The ground is rougher here – clumps of grass initially and then boggy, short grass, reeds and some heather – but is quite navigable without too much effort. The high point is a slightly elevated turf mound with a wobbly wooden pole.On returning to the car a farmer was sitting in his car clearly waiting for me to arrive, and I feared he’d have a problem with me crossing his land, but he was simply curious and engaged me in some idle banter before leaving, so I assume access is no real problem, although if there is anyone about, I’d ask first. It took me 35 minutes to reach the top and another 30 to get back.
