An impromptu visit while taking my son to the Uni. The OS map gave the impression that the track from Gibbet Hill Road led to the trig, but I was not dressed for squeezing past the large gate. Glad I didn't now that I can see it wouldn't have got me to the trig anyway.

If you mark this for view over the bay it would be about a 6, but taking the boarded up flats into account I think a 2 is generous. Litter collectors were out, which made me laugh. Couldn't get right up to trig location due to fence, but it must have been demolished when the flats were built. There sure are some eyesores round what was obviously once a lovely neighbourhood. Funny how they get all the good views too. As everyone else has said, this land must be worth a fortune now. Wish I had shares.

I've finally found a trig I don't like - no wait, Hate. As previously mentioned there are hundreds of Brace's bread bags decomposing in the area. Under the tree in the field there must be easily 30 dead rotting crows (or is it 4 & 20 Blackbirds). The whole area is covered in s**t and stinks. As I neared the trig a massive flock of seagulls rose from over the brow of the hill, like you see on a rubbish tip. I had the misfortune to pass this 3 times. The poor sheep have next to no grass. I'm sure the views are great when it's less hazy though I certainly won't be returning to find out. Even the trig was a grey/black shade. ****** Please don't log Brecon Beacons trig here as it doesn't deserve the hike in it's score. ****** P.S. I was the other side of the hill today (17/8/2007) and now know there is a rubbish tip there.

Trigpoint is ghostly white. Well forested area so views aren't great, though it's a great place to walk. Passed a large bird of prey on the side of the road as I pulled up. It was very impressive as it flew off.

From the north side of the hedge it's not easy to see, but from the south side it's pretty much invisible. Walked some of the nearby paths which were surprisingly flat.

Can you see it? This is taken from the north side, which has much more visible than the south side of the hedge.©SidAndBob

It's was hot and hazy up here today, but well worth the effort. The views were great today, but I imagine they're breathtaking on a clear day. Reading Fasgadh's log has reminded me that we have Skirrid, the board game!

A bit hazy today, though it's a great place. A couple of paragliders around. On our way to the local cache.

Did this after 8 caches in the area, the last being Ribbesford Woods. A 4x4 came right past me as I was at the trig point and we exchanged glances as if to mutually say "What on earth are you doing?". Good views to all directions. The trig point can be seen from quite some distance.

After doing maintenance on one of our caches at King Arthur's Cave (GCWCDP) I brought the dogs up here. Easily reached the trig, which is in a clearing, via loads of paths through woodland, though I did end up coming back down a private drive. Met the owner who was more than pleasant. Shame about the road noise from the A40 and the lack of views, otherwise a lovely place.

Bob and I got our new hobby off to a great start this evening. We parked to the east on Hangerberry New Road and zig-zagged up the hill. The views were far reaching - forest to the east, hillside to the west - though not from the trig itself.

Cave We stumbled upon this cave at N51 50.115 W2 34.949 on the way up. It's easily large enough to explore inside, though maybe a bit wet.©SidAndBob

We visited this trig point whilst doing Sweet Mountain (GCGQBN) geocache. It's a terrific place, though our heather bashing route is not to be recommended.

Sugar Loaf It's pretty busy up here. There must have been al least 30 people here when we visited.©SidAndBob

I've been up here a couple of times to do the 2 caches here at lunchtimes as it's close to where I work. It has a view - but it's of Gloucester.

Found whilst claiming our first FTF on only our third ever geocache. Great hill. Must revisit soon.

We walk here a lot as we live nearby. You often see deer in the woods to the south and even wild boar which were dumped here a couple of years ago.

Buckstone On this visit we snapped some stags and had to stop in the road for several wild boar. Also a body was found dumped in a parking area across the road. They reckon it was a mafia killing from Cardiff, just dumping the body here - so it's safe to visit. A busy day all in all!©SidAndBob
