At the top of a long field, which I gained access from the forest, after doing the caches on the way up from the road.

First proper bit of warmth for the new year. Absolute delight to visit here. Berwyn blizzards of last weekend well and truly forgotten.

Lovely sunny day to visit Chase Hill

Concrete plug, Walked up from the town and country car park, ended up thrashing through the trees and brambles. came across a dead badger, know doubt killed by one of the 'culling heros'. eventually picked up the Wye Valley Way to a gate that led out onto the open summit.

For one reason or another I've never managed to get up here even though I've walked around here a reasonable amount. But today was the the day and it was a good one with lovely spring sunshine and the open top was covered in wild flowers. An easy to find pillar.

Spent a few hours sledging down Tank Meadow,sadly my sledge could not take my weight for long! Then paid the trig my respects, first time i have visited in the snow. Entered via the gate. When i reached the pillar there were foot prints coming out of the wood & over the fence to trig & straight back again. Another trigger? Lovely up here.

First of 5 trigs baggged today in south Herefordshire (1 is in north Glos). Parked at a handy car park on the edge of Ross-on-Wye and walked due south up a muddy hill. On approaching the summit, the path veers round so no public access into and across the pasture where the pillar is located. Access is easy enough though. Pillar is prominent in a field of grazing sheep and is in good condiiton, although has some graffiti on it. No views as entirely surrounded by tall trees.

Yet another revisit. Went on my annual blackberry pick for Mum (shorts are not the best thing to wear when getting up close to brambles!) so combined this with a circular walk of the hill, taking in the pillar. There is now a new information board at the bottom car park, which states that there is no public access to the top. I wonder if that was Dustys stick left propped up against the trig? Lots of round hay bales in the field.

Parked in a small parking area n the lane just below Hill Farm. Walked up the path tot he West of the hill before heading directly up the side of the old fort. Coming out right by the trig at the top. Good views to the NE or May Hill. The forts ramparts are not clear on the West side, but walking back down the path to the East they are much clearer. Still tree covered though. Me, Mum, Hadley 203m

Easy to locate and access on an old hill fort above Ross on Wye. A bit of a stiff climb, but worth it. Visited while supporting walkers doing the Wye Valley.

Just had lunch and a pint in Wetherspoons in Ross - and did I regret it after the slog up here to the old fort!! Anyway, the pillar is in good shape apart from an ashphalt plug replacement. Its in the open in an arable field. Somw white paint discernable. A good spot!

Spent a lot of time up this hill & it's neighbour Penyard as a kid. Nice, quiet spot.Pity it's off the right of way though. 203m = 666ft though older maps show 665ft! Lots of local tales of witchcraft in these woods.

Ascended via the path across the field and up the scarp face via the swing noted elsewhere descended via Wye valley walk a far more sedate option. Especially as the paths are at best indistinct though the woods.

I enjoyed this bag. As I come out of the woods I scared a healthy looking fox next to the trig point. Unfortunately electronic cameras have a downside in that by the time the lens cover is pulled back, the lens extended and the electronic warmed up the fox is well gone! Found a great tree on the way down with two Tarzan ropes hanging off it.
