I walked up here as part of a geocaching trip. The trigpoint is part of a puzzle cache. A slightly slippy climb along the very beginning of the Cotswold Way footpath. Not much of a view in the gloom today.

Visited this and Kelston Round Hill on a short circular walk from Bath. All 4 top edges of pillar are chipped and cap is missing (no plug), therefore have classified it as 'slightly damaged'. 3 sight holes open. Good views over Bath, but not as extensive as from Kelston.

Continuing on from my walk from Lansdown Road Race course, via Kelston Round Hill trig. Very sensible fencing allows access to the trig, and the views down from it, without having to climb over anything. Continued the walk down into Bath afterwards to meet family before taking the bus back up to the Park and Ride. Lovely. Me 121m

Park in Penn Hill Road and followed the Cotswold way footpath across a playing field up the hill to the trig, trig on the wrong side of a barbed fence which needs to be jumped, well worth it excellent views across Bath.

Thought I would be clever and park up at Pendean Farm to the N of this trig and split a walk here with a bike to its neighbout sadly the only parking is amongst the houses to the east meaning a 50m extra climb on the bike and a push along the FP to this trig. Great views though of Bath

As I was at the start of an eight-day backpack I did not climb over the fence to visit the pillar, but it is clearly visible from the Cotswold Way path that runs on the other side of the barbed wire fence.

Third trig on an extremely wet day so couldn't summon up the enthusiasm to climb the barbed wire. Trig looked in good nick but cloud down so no longer views. However all is not lost as we have now started the Cotswold Way from the other end so will return in due course.
