Summit is just a high spot in the same ilk as the SOTA summit Bishop Wilton Wold G/TW-004. The summit is marked by a covered reservoir and communications mast installation.

Report 1
SJ963473 - Park in the lay-by on the A52. There is a house at one end so I parked at the far end of the lay-by so as to not block access.
From the parking place cross the road (take care as cars think it`s a race track). Cross the stile in the hawthorn hedge to pick up the footpath over the fields. The footpath veers South of the summit so as I approached the reservoir I veered left and set up right next to the communications mast. There were a couple of llamas in the field but they ignored me. I felt a bit self conscious and expected an angry farmer to appear at any time - so I didn`t hang around. The land is quite flat here so the activation zone would be quite big. I think that part of the A52 might possibly be in it - so you have no need to trespass to activate.
