Visited 15.5.10.
I was pushed for time so I only had a long distance view of this hillfort. I parked at the entrance to the lane which takes you to Withyslade Farm and viewed the tree covered top of the hill - easily seen from the road. The O/S map shows no public right of access to the hillforrt and the lower slopes were open fields so I imagine a 'sneak' visit would be tricky. I would suggest asking permission. From the road all you see are a load of trees on top of a hill - like a lot of other sites!

Access to the perimeter of this hillfort is via public footpaths, but the interior is private property and permission must be sought. formicaant Posted by formicaant
