There is parking at the bottom of the lane, just off Manor Road. Although the muddy farmers track leading up to White Sheet Camp is about 1km. I did manage to get 3/4 way up there in my car before abandoning it, and walking the rest of the way.
Note: this is National Trust land and there are frequently NOTAMs in place for gliders nearby, so alway check before you head out.
White Sheet Camp is a neolithic enclosure dating back to 3,000 BC, and an Iron Age hill fort at the top. There are also Bronze Age barrows, some of which are clearly visible. It is incredible to think they have survived for 3 to 4,000 years.
The hill is owned and managed by the National Trust, and the land is grazed by livestock.
The walk to the top is steep but rewarding, with views across to the Stourhead estate where you can clearly see the mansion house, the obelisk and in the distance, King Alfred's Tower. Look in another direction and you can make out the town of Mere, and the distinctive Castle Hill which overlooks the settlement.
Land owner permission not required.
