Long Walk up the hill from Oxenton but well worth it for the view.

From Oxenton village route starts OK but then goes onto clearly marked private land but no entry signs were painted 20+years ago and change of owner appears less concerned. I found 5 horse head collars on a gate post suggesting theft is not a problem here.

Blustery & cold, but that wasn't the trig pont's fault...nice easy climb. Looking forward to strolling up again come a warm still spring day.

hard work this one, from the footpath from the bend in the road to the n/ne,could not find a path up so just headed up hill, farmer caught me half way up and directed me in the right direction,the trig not actually on his land but near enough for me,great views.

No views today due to a thick haze and after the hottest day of the year so far yesterday. Private land and registered as a scheduled monument. Deer on top and rotting crows dotted around the place strung up from trees.

Great views in the sunshine on the top. Came up through the mist. There was a buzzard up on the top.

Worth the effort for unhindered views in all directions.

Went up through Dixton Wood from the bend near Black Barn on the Dixton/Alstone road.

Bit of a hidden gem. Stunning views (right to the Brecon Beacons almost 100km away)in all directions. Asked landowner for permission at start of footpath in Oxenton village. Evidence of iron age(?)digging on top. Unspoilt - the only track up wasn't even there 25 years ago and all previous transport was by horse. A fantastic spot.

Again opted for Oxenton village and the extremely muddy footpath until it entered the woodland. Then as others it was a case of following fencelines upwards with a very close eye on the none to friendly cattle in almost every field. Quite hard work compared to most English trigs.

Had by-passed this a couple of times due to access limitations but could put off no longer! Walked in from Manor Farm on the Gloucestershire Way for 2 fields ,then skirted field edges to the top.A Buzzard overhead and two Hares "boxing" in the field before the pillar was great to see.Lovely views.Some grafitti scratched into W face of pillar but nothing too bad.

We parked at Oxenton and took the footpath west before heading across the fields just after the wooded bit. A pleasant walk up through hay fields to the summit, keeping out of view of surrounding farms for most of the time. The summit has loads of shallow pits which might be former quarry or mineral workings. Good views. Plug with indented lettering.

Well, I've finally got here after two previous failed attempts! This must be one of the most glorious [and inaccessable] spots on the entire Worcestershire/Gloucestershire border. The plug is original [slightly indented letters]. SE sighthole open, the others closed. Concrete base exposed all round. No visible paint. Amazingly, for such an isolated spot, there is some unreadable graffiti chipped into the face above the flush bracket! There are fantastic views from here - N to Bredon, S/SE to Dixton Hill and the Cotswolds, W to Malvern and SW towards the Bristol Channel. Spooked a tawny owl on the way up. For those like me who love this part of the world, it doesn't get much better than this! It would have been a great place to celebrate one's 400th trig - but the 398th will have to do. Fabulous spot!
