Permission sought and granted. A SubHump, if you like that sort of thing.

Tried the farm house but no one was home except for a couple of goats with an electric fence around them. So i went around the side of the house and buildings to get to the Trig.

sub-hump + trig, approached through farmyard from east with sign about farm security and as I walked past it a bell sounded and an elderly woman immediately came to the front door of the house and I introduced myself and just asked permission to go up through the yard to go to the hill top and photograph the trig pillar which she happily gave but asking me to make sure I re-hoooked the electric fence. this I duly did on the upper field.

Parked roadside in Clutton Hill; short walk along farm track. Called in at farm house for permission. 'Excuse me, we're hoping to visit the trig are you the landowner?', 'No, that would be John, he's bell-ringing but he's a friendly sort, you can go on up to the trig'. Located in a rough pasture, pillar in good condition, nice smooth finish; original cap, lightly indented lettering, all 4 sight holes open. Extensive 360deg views, suprising how good they were, even if a little hazy.

Didn't expect much from the top, but a really stunning site on this clear sunny day. Both Severn Bridges, Malverns, May Hill, Forest of Dean, Sugar Loaf(?) near Abergavenny, Welsh Hills, Mendips, etc. Last visit in a trip including the Bath and Bristol areas. I had hoped to complete all my outstanding pillars in this area but thwarted on two in central Bristol. One behind security fence on allotments and not in sight and one with access cbarred by building site!

Advisable to check access with friendly farmer and his wife at Barrow House Farm - a little way up the lane from Ashdene - as original access has been blocked by farmer due to vandalism at nearby mobile phone mast.Two electric fences to cross with help of farmer, who told me that the trig had been moved from its original position on Barrow Hill in the 1940s to assist in surveying work carried out at nearby Pensford colliery.Lovely views and very interesting area.

Parked by the triangle followed the PUBLIC footpath by climbing a padlocked gate only to be confronted by about 50 bullocks, no danger but they were very inquisitive, quickly retraced by steps back to the triangle. Started again walked up the lane passed Ashdene to a gate at the top of the hill on the left, climbed over the gate only to find the field protected with an electric fence. This simple trig proved to be quite comlex.

We parked at the road triangle at the top of Cuckoo Lane and took the tarmac track up past Ashdene. Enter the field at the first gateway and head up across the pasture from there as there is no access at the top of the hill. The pillar is on the north side of the hedge but it's an easy fence. Plug with indented lettering.

White pillar on grassy hill with wooded area behind. A bit trespassy so tried to keep out of sight of tractors going to and fro on the road.
