With Jo, from Bilbrough: Bilbrough Hill and then along road and track to Stock Hill (top and trig). Weather; sunny, mild, good visibility.amblerbob11/03/2016
small contour (Ingrish Hill) to NNW is 45m, not 50m, so is lower than either of the 50m contours by pond behind Church to southGeorge Gradwell10/01/2016

As Jimmy, a short walk from the Church. Visited the 50m contour at Ingrish Hill just to the north of the village beforehand. Although this seemed higher the GPS readings didn't confirm this. Regardless, its a better viewpoint and well worth a visit.yorkie03/12/2015

As Jimmy put in his log. I agree that that is the high point.bolieve24/08/2014
From Bilbrough Main St., parked in front of St James' church. Small gate, path to L through churchyard into small copse which opens onto field. High point in copse, on banking by garden fence and about 10m from a pond. Two 50m contours on map, the other is in grounds of Bilbrough Manor, about 100m to the W.Aye Jimmy12/08/2014
estimated date as I'd felt sure I'd logged it at the time so surprised to se it not logged. went through to slight rise east of the pond but also asked resident if I may stand on high point of lawn on south side of the big house that's been split into more than one residencevegibagger30/06/2014
