After Brown Clee Hill G/WB-002, it was now only a short drive to the next summit - as indeed most drives would be for the rest of the day.  I approached the hill from the main access road running up from the A4117 to the south.  I am always careful with this summit - to avoid a terribly poorly-maintained road that approaches from further west!  As I pulled into the parking spot, I was surprised to see a car already there, and with a huge antenna!  This turned out to be a CBer having fun on 11m.  We chatted briefly before I set off on my ascent.

I continued walking up the access road before passing through a fenced walkway around the boundary of a transmitter compound.  This emerges back onto the tarmac road on the other side, which is followed almost all of the rest of the way to the trig point.  The day was turning into a really nice one, and the views from the summit were tremendous.

Looking back to the parking spot        Parking alongside an 11m freebander!

I managed to qualify the summit entirely on C4FM, but a couple of analogue QSOs were added as well.  I set off for the next waypoint in my satnav - Long Mynd-Pole Bank G/WB-005 - but as I neared Craven Arms on the A49, I realised there was the opportunity for a snap activation of the nearby View Edge G/WB-018 as well.  I couldn't resist!
