From NE (good parking on grass verge) on foot path initially through apple orchard then steps through nice deciduous wood to fields of deep grass to reach grassy summit. Open access with bench on summit. Trig point on NNE shoulder. Good views W of hills fading int a golden sunset. Sun finally dips below the horizon at 21:32, eve of the longest day.

Walking from Malvern Link Station to Ledbury Station. Had hoped to catch a train back but it was cancelled due to a signalling fault but managed to catch the last bus of the day back to Malvern.

Parked at the church of st james the great, Colwall. Followed the Geopark Way, crossing Cradley Brook, then up through an apple orchard, woodland & finally to the open summit.Nice pillar,not quite the summit. Stunning views across Hfds to Wales,Shrops & Worcs hills. Lovely spot on a warm,sunny day. I drive within 2 miles of here to work yet its taken me over 4 yrs of trigpointing to bag this one. Well worth the wait! Returned the same way. Thats the Ledbury trigs completed

Unusually the pillar is quite a way from the summit of the hill. Visited on a walk from Ledbury to Malvern stopping off at the nearby Farmers Arms in Wellington Heath.

A great spot. Take a look at the nearby bench - its got a good inscription on the plaque. The trig is now painted white. Plug intact. Came up here first and then onto Frith Woods. Much better views from here than the latter.

Nice sunny day. Lovely views over the Malverns to the north east, and Ridge Hill (Marcle) to the west. It appears to be located on an old manor estate with a newly restored Georgian house to the south. A really nice secluded spot!

Easy access pillar, on a public footpath off a narrow lane but a lay-by to park in. It's all intact with the original plug - deeply indented letters. A few traces of paint. All sightholes open. Concrete base exposed on all sides except S. In the centre of a pasture field with a mixed herd of friendly Fresian and Jersey cows. Lovely views N to Clee and end of Malverns, and W to Welsh Hills. Lovely spot.
