No clear footpath to the top. Managed to scramble up the side through the trees to the east. Bit of a view from the top, but mainly obscured by trees. Lots of quarry workings nearby meant it was quite a noisy spot.

Parked in the Weighbridge Car Park and took the same route as Penfold in 2011. How I managed to avoid any more than 2 stings on my bare legs from the abundant nettles is a mystery. The top is a fairly wild place (except for the quarry noise) and gives great views as previously described. On returning to the car there was a polite note under my wipers for not checking in to the office. I went and apologised, got a friendly reception and briefed the chap on duty about the trig point and promised to include this advice on the website. So book in and you'll have no probs, but autumn or winter might be a better time of year!

Circular walk out from Bridgwater via Cannington then back via River Parrett riverside path from Combwich. Approached trig from the path to the east up through woods. Excellent view from top. Did notice a recent planning application sign to increase the quarry size in the area so the trig point day may be numbered. One thing in its favour is that the hill is an ancient hill fort.

Small hill giving super views N over Bridgewater Bay to Weston-s-Mare and Mendips. New road scheme round here satnav got confused - prepartory work for the new Hinkley pwr stn possibly. Parked at bend in minor road to SSW and took direct line up hill, skirting small quarry, to scrubby top. Pillar has minor chipping to 3 top edges; original metal cap in place, raised lettering; RHD side sight hole open, LHD side plug degrading.

Parked up by the quarry entrance and strolled up through the kissing gate directly towards the run down stone wall, crossing it by an especially broken part by a tree. Continuing to climb up the next field looking for a wide track up to the right. Take this passing a small enclosure then head up left over to the rocks up to the summit. The pillar is in good nick, cracking views north up the Parrett estuary. Super sting nettle rash to lower limbs.

Parked to the South then straight up to pillar. Lots of "dead" clays around. Saw plenty of pheasants and a Buzzard drifted off from a tree near pillar. Good views and pillar in good condition.

The pillar stands in the grass and nettle interior of a small hill fort; it has a metal cap with small raised lettering and has FB S//3252. The footpath was taken from the quarry gate to the east as far as a convenient break in the boundary wall of the woods to allow me a direct route to the summit. The site looks over the Parrett estuary to Brean Down and Brent Knoll; rain clouds were over the Mendips; Glastonbury Tor could be seen in the distance to the east. The view to distant hills in the southeast and of the Quantocks to the south and west is largely blocked by nearby trees. There was a constant din from the machinery in the nearby quarry. The hill is reputedly the sight of a battle between Saxons and Vikings in 878.

went from the quarry road through the new wood to the track entrance to the old wood. passed lots of scuttling game birds on the way over some limestone outcroppings to the TP at the top.

We parked to the south and followed the path up to the wood and then headed west to the trig. This seems to be a popular clay pigeon shootong spot judging by the amount of debris around. The quarry has expanded and covers quite a lot of the hill but not the trig yet. Plug with raised lettering.

Plain pillar in long grass with good views over River Parrett to Brent Knoll. There is an extensive earthwork around the hill and many grasshoppers.
