curiously enclosed between two fences on ancient hill fort with terraces. With friendly donkeys in field. Lights glowing as sun set.

Bagged at the same time as the hill. Walked from Cholsey via the Astons. Approached from the north. walked on to Goring. A delight on a windy day.

Tried to get to this from the wrong direction. Followed the footpath from Aston Tirrold. And then thought about trying short cut up the side of the hill through gate. The hillside is covered in holes made by badgers and rabbits. Fell down about 4 before i gave up and went along until second gate that enter field with sheep in it. Still very slippy but easy walk to Trig Point. It now has a new fence in front of it so difficult to get good picture of bracket. The track down to Blueberry was much nicer. Def go that way if you are thinking of going there.

This Iron Age Fort feels higher than just 110m. Approached this one from the west, from Blewburton village. Watched by a pair of circling red kites whilst at the pillar. Later, Robins 3-2 Tangerines in horrible gusty stormy afternoon. Luckily for me only a mizzle on Blewburton Hill.

Excellent walk from the Farm and then up onto the hill. Popular for dog walkers. TP is visible from main path and only short walk along the fence line where it is sandwiched between a wooden and barbed wire fence. Great views and fantastic aerobatics from Kites and Buzzards

Walked up from Aston Upthorpe, where All Saints' Church is well worth a visit, very simple Norman architecture dating from 1080. If approaching this way, cut straight up the field bankside opposite the metal kissing gate and you will find yourself at the end of the gap between the fence and the barbed wire and able easily to walk along to the trig. Excellent all round views on a beautiful sunny evening, especially if you are tolerant of power stations! Also many red kites and kestrels hunting their evening meal. Centre and all except N s/holes open, otherwise vgc.

We parked on Hagbourne Road in a layby, on the N side of the road, to the N of the trig (approx. SU549865). Then it was a short walk along a path in the S direction (next to the gate to the path was a wooden bench (marked 2000AD) and a rubbish bin), then up the fort to this trig. The trig was in between a wooden fence and a barbed wire fence, but the barbed wire fence is right up against the trig so you don't have to cross the barbed wire fence. Thoroughbred horses were kept in the surrounding fields, so my guess was that the barbed wire fence was there to keep other animals away from the wooden fence. Trig was in very good condition, centre cap missing. Really nice views from up here, except for Ditcot Power Station!

Found after a day's visit to nearby Steam Railway Centre in Didcot and also after logging the nearby GeoCache. The plug is missing; no paint; west sighthole open, others closed. Situated in open access land behind a barbed wire fence. Good all-round views on a breezy day. Nice spot.

Wonderful views from Blewburton Hill. I agree with the comments about the barbed wire. Since there is a fence just the other side of the barbed wire, why put it there at all?
