Ascent Trip Report

A surprisingly enjoyable walk from the nature reserve car park to the west of the summit. The most direct route is to leave the car park by the map at its eastern end, wlak up the field margin beyond, and turn onto the path leading west. This is signed to the summit, and leads past an aviators' memorial in the form of an eagle on a large rock stack, to the summit, where a gate leads into the enclosure above the gliding club. It is worth paying two euros to enter the cold war dome, now converted into an exhibition, viewing gallery and event space. The summit marker is a modest stone around twenty yards North East of the dome.
