A drippingly hot walk, something quite trance like about the baking sun, the attempt of the weather to turn stormy and the parched land jewelled with yellows, purples and pinks. Love exploring different places and this - away from the usual NW rambles feels strangely wild and ancient despite the proximity of Cheltenham and distant hints of the Midlands. On to the top after this, walking very, very slowly.

Walked up to this one from the main Cheltenham to Winchcombe road which is probably the harder route. Trig in the middle of the golf course and has a nice Topograph nearby too. Excellent views to Malvern and Sugerloaf beyond and on clearer days I have see the Severn Bridge and the Black mountains from here.

Well I did and I managed to bag the earthcache too, well chuffed with myself! I have never walked so fast.

Parked at the masts at SO994248 and walked the 1.16 miles to The Ring in 22 mins, scattering sheep as I ambled along! Strangely the northern part of the common seems to have several golf greens protected by electric fences and golfers mingle with the sheep here. Stunning views from the trig and even better from the edge (100m or so further west). Pillar now has Cotswold Way roundels on the SW and NW faces. FB faces SW and all sightholes are still open. Cleeve Hill (TP0007) - a Primary station at Gloucestershire’s county top - is a 1.4 mile walk from here.

First trigpoint of day 2 and what a splendid one to start with. I parked in the old quarry adjacent to the Golf Club. From there is was an easy walk to the pillar… taking care to watch out for golfers (or more specifically, their balls). The pillar is in good condition and complete with all it’s metalwork. The views are very good indeed with an unusual view over Cheltenham Racecourse to the south west. Close by is a ‘View Point’ with distances and directions to visible landmarks.

It was calm earlier at Cleeve Hill but by the time I got here it was blowing a gale. All four sighting holes open, one of them smaller than usual. Views are slightly better from the nearby bench than at the trig. Plug - my first with raised lettering - still there.

I thought I had never been here before and then last night I dug out the OS map and saw a ring around the trig and realised that I was up here on the longest day 20 years ago. The event was and still is called the Sun Run, a scouting event I think, a night 24 mile hike between here and the Malverns. Lots of people around today and a group of people induldging in a strange sport of hitting white balls with sticks.

Great views from this pillar, which is situated on a golf course near a topograph. Do not mistake this for Cleeve Hill trig point, which is a coupel of miles to the south. Access is easy as the Cotswold Way runs right past it.

This was a bit of a double whammy! Came here after seeing Lincoln beaten by two Cheltenham goals in the last 5 minutes! Parked in the carpark by the golf course and climbed up to the pillar - thinking it was Cleeve Hill!! But.... it wasn't! I can't believe that no-one has been here before. The views from the pillar are marvellous, especially southwest over Cheltenham, west towards Wales and northwest to the Malverns. There is an adjacent aluminium toposcope. The pillar is fully intact including the plug. The NW and SW faces have a 'Cotswold Way' footpath arrow on them. The base is very solid. I went in the evening, so the views with the lights going on were spectacular and I missed all the golfers, as you have to walk over a golf-course to get here. It must be in line for the 'Best Views from a Golf-Course' award!

Old Man took interesting approach to the stile opp Rising Sun on the way back by tripping up the pavement first and catapulting over it as a result! Fortunately not injured.
