Parked near the wind farm entrance where there is plenty space. The phone box has disappeared! Cycled up the wind farm track (motorway) but went too far! There a a multitude of tracks, only a few of which bear much relation to the OS depiction.

Ended up having to push my bike cross country to regain the real track to the summit. Eventually managed to cycle all the way to the top. Descend was very fast so made up a lot of time.

My advice would be don’t attempt this hill without a GPS. Lots of featureless ground which would be very difficult in mist.
