Final Notts hill... saving the best till last... NOT! Drove up to the resr gates from SK 7424 8002, then wandered across a stubble field - not very exciting.jonglew11/02/2020
Drove up access road and parked just South of reservoir. Went to two potential high point: SE end of Grovewells plantation and South hedge of compound.David Evans06/01/2020

Parked at Grove and walked up reservoir access road. Wandered into middle of field, which was overgrown with clover, but there wasn't an obvious high point.Wheelsy15/09/2016
From reservoir gates, alongside compound to west-east strip of wood. Out south into ploughed field. Ended up on mud stilts.ngthack06/03/2016
Drove up lane to compound gates. Walked along w edge and to hp in middle of huge open plan field.Campbell Singer05/02/2016
Semi circular route from Retford station to Clarborough with Lexi my partner's Labradoodle. We headed East on a fp over bracken lane to Castle hill wood,taking track to compound then alongside it before taking a bearing over theoretical high point in field to edge of Grovewells plantation. Descent Ne to intersection of paths then East, N onto Caddow lane, over railway onto Rathole track then West onto Red Flats Lane into Clarborough, then bridle path to edge of estate, fp Nnw to Starting Gate Inn where after a drink we were offered a lift back to Retford station by a kind local rather than walk along the canal in the pouring rain.Dazingdale28/11/2015
Drove up and parked at gates of Grove Service Res. Walked along S hedgeline into wood, round back of compound (raised banking in places), fought back into arable field, then along edge of wood. As others say high point could be here or south hedge of the compound. Took the easy way back along edge of arable field.Aye Jimmy15/12/2014
My final Notts. hill. Part of circular walk from Welham Bridge (S.K.719818). From resr. compound used track past new wind turbine. Then left, on a vague tractor track, over field to Grovewells Plantation. A couple of possible spots for summit in field here, as well as compound area. Cloudy & windy. Good view of Cottam power station, otherwise limited.Richard Gunn14/12/2014
