Looked easy up footpaths from NW, but still running water and very muddy! Sustained a few scratches to legs in trying to maintain a drier route!4th of day on easy day between Clun YHA and Kington YHA. Enjoying the sun and warmth!

Pretty woodland location near the top of Burton Hill, a Marilyn. Easy parking in Weobley, a picturesque Herefordshire village. We walked through the Ring and Bailey earthworks on edge of the village on our way out to the hill. A pleasant circular walk returning via Ledgemoor village on a lovely sunny day. Pillar is in good condition.

Nice walk up from Scoles Bank to the west where you can squeeza a car in by yhe field gate and take the path diagionally left through the field to join the track. Saw ten deer in the wood. Bagged the trig then went up to the high point.

Pleasant but muddy walk from the East,might be an alternative...if longer route as the parking is good and there is no ascent. Revist as visiting parents and needed some space!! Pllar condition unchanged.

Pleasant walk up from Shoals Bank, following way mark symbols (thanks Rhayader Wandered). Pleasant wood. Plug with heavily indented lettering.

Carelessly followed the track rather than the waymarked footpath on entering the woodland leaving me with a 250m thrash though bramble back to the trig far easier following the FP in descent. Parking possible in the gate near Shoals bank

Track to summit area which is heavily wooded, with thick undergrowth, and a trig. Highest point debatable.

Tough ol' climb up from Shoals Bank. Needed a breather by the time we got here so it's a good job there was a Trig Point handy!! Very cold and windy... Hazy view too but that's what it's all about, I guess. Trig point is in good condition with all it's metalwork in place.

Hard walk up the steep hill and the view was hazy - cannot blame the location for that though. Metal top in place.

A doddle after the tribulations of nearby Wormsley Hill. However, still a tricky scramble up through brashings after losing the FP coming up from the north-west. A pleasant situation on edge of cleared area but no real views due to trees. Note: the pillar is not actually on the highest point which is about 100m away, and also a Marilyn.

Parking a problem, eventually found a spot on the B4230 then followed the footpath from Shoals Bank. The pillar was by the track but locating the actual summit was more of a problem, lots of thrashing around but have seen worse.

Still white. Visited on the way to see Hereford United do over Cambridge 5-2. The actual summit is a brambly piece of oakwood that I have now visited twice. The other time during an orienteering event which gave a hassle free enjoyment of the woods.
