Parked at start of riverside walk. Pleasent walking along The Severn. Straight up the hill .A good gap to enter the field . Trig found in hedge to the right. Evidence of pheasant feeding stations.

Bagged as YSM559 Windmill Hill. Already bagged by Mr U2 he dropped me off at the river side and headed along the path and then up the hill to the hedge, didn't spot the gap so had to battle through, spotted massive gap on the way back for a much easier return, loads of bunnies by the pillar.

#442 P#248 P2016#48. Parked beside houses at the river then walked along edge of fields at river then headed up. Great fun trying to access hedgerow to reach the pillar in the next field. No view due to hedge.

Walked to this after gaining permission to park outside locals house on Weir Lane. Followed footpath and once the trig was directly to my left I followed animal tracks to summit of hill. Fought my way through hedgerow to find pillar in ploughed field. Nice views to trig but once there high hedge blocks any views.

Found as YOSM 559. Parked at Weir Green and walked along the Severn and kept to field boundaries. TP close to bushes/tree and so views not remarkable.

From Weir Green, short walk along Severn Way then field boundaries to trig on SW side hedgerow. Pillar in good condition; on large plinth mainly now below ground level but visible towards rear. Original cap in place, lightly indented lettering; rear sight hole only open. Extensive views S, E & W; N obscured by hedgerow.

Walked from boat moored at Sellars Bridge. Part of Severn Way impassable - well it was in shorts & sandals! Gap in hedge becoming very tight and barbed wire doesn't help! FB number consecutive to nearby Robinswood Hill.

Walked along the Severn from Weir Green, then up to trig. Nice views to Dean,May Hill, Gloucester, Malverns & Cotswolds. Would have given it a 6 but the gap in the hedge is a pain to negotiate, unless you are very small!

Better views than I expected from this low altitude. The cap is not central. Very unusual.

Parked at Weir Green and walked along the banks of the Severn headed up the hill following GPS directions only to find the trig on the wrong side of a hedge just to make life difficult.

Glad I found the hidden gap in the hedge or I would have given up trying to get here from the river. Waterskiing taking place on Severn - not very peaceful.

As per Mickandshane but the gap is almost impossible to find now. Last of 4 as I pick up the start of a heavier shower

We parked at Weir Green and walked along the bank of the Severn before heading uphill to the trig through a dairy cow field - it was too hot for them to take any interest in us. The trig is on the other side of the hedge but there is a bit of a gap a bit further along. Plug with indented lettering.

Bagged during cycle trip with family. Access via riverside path. Good all round views, surprising for height.
