Bike ride: Oakwood - Hampstead Heath - Shepherds' Bush - Hanger Hill - Wembley Hill - Barn Hill - Wakemans Hill - Oakwood.Mark Jackson06/06/2020
From Wembley Central to Wembley Hill and Barn Hill and back. I was glad that my trainers are waterproof as BH was very wet.chrisbien14/02/2020
6/11. Mudfest but nice enough top and trig.Bramley21/01/2020
From South Kenton station, eastwards along section 10 of the Capital Ring circular walk, through Preston Park, various residential streets and along paths in Fryent Country Park, to the pond and trig point at the summitMariana Trench14/09/2019
Run from Wembley Hill HP- some good views from Barn Hill and across Fryent Country Pk, then on to Wakemans Hill Ave. I'm surprised I'd never been to this HP before esp. as there are buses from Burnt Oak where I lived for 7 yrs!pwheeler01/08/2019
Trig with good views but HP on west side of nearby pond. Enjoyed lunch on nearby bench under cool blue skies. Within Fryent Country Park.Denise 17/01/2019
Strange to find a pond on a summit. Fine cold clear weather but views limited by the trees. Late lunch on bench on S side of hill with great views.RichardM17/01/2019
On Capital Ringjthomson6nr901/12/2018
From Colindale to Wembley This top was a lovely countryside walk through the park. The top has a trig point, bench, pond and a way marker for the London Ring walkChinnockC20/10/2018
Parked in Country Park cp. Nnumerouss paths up to top. Early morning drinking near summit. Participants were over the limit but friendly. Good views south to Wembley.Campbell Singer01/07/2018
South Greenford to Kingsbury. Revisited while undertaking section of Capital Ring.Smudge23/02/2018
Part of Capital Ring (10-11) walk. Cracking view of Wembley Stadium from the bench by the pond.jedthehumanoid10/01/2018
Pleasant walk from Wembley Park station and sat on the bench at the summit near to the pondmadaddo14/10/2017
Walked from Harrow on the Hill. mostly via Capital Ring. Easy to find top with trig as a bonus, views limited by trees, but quiet as had place to ourselves. Continue walk to Wembley Hill, via the stadium and Costa Coffee for elevenses.Hillsidenick13/10/2017

From Kingsbury Station then Barn Hill. Pleasant hill for a London top.clivevilla24/05/2017
From Wembley Park tube via Barn Hill Road. A genuinely enjoyable hill: the trig point is approached by a grassy rake, and the tarn beyond had a family of mallards and masses of yellow flags in flower when I visited. The bald point behind the bench near the trig looks higher than the alternatives when seen from across the tarn.Nick Down118/05/2017
Day out on the Tube doing a circuit of the Tumps. From Colindale Tube Station, Wakemans Hill Avenue, Barn Hill and Wembley Hill. Onward via Wembley Park Tube.rhalstead25/02/2017
Great hill -lovely park, trig point at the top and views over Wembley Station. 32.6km bike ride on the Brompton sadly in the pouring rain! Kings Cross to Madia Vale then canal towpath all the way out and followed the cycling routes. Three hills bagged: Wembley Hil, this one and Wakemans Hill Avenue. Cycled back fast down the A5.Fionalevey29/01/2017
On round of Harrow, Sudbury, Wembley, Barns and Wakemans Hill Avenue Hills. Only Trig of the afternoon.PeterD19/05/2016
A pond is a really unusual summit feature to find. Last hill on a brisk walk over 4 four tops.Swindon Bagger26/03/2016
Walked up from country park car park. Easy stroll, although mud made it a slippery approach. Quickly attained summit with great views of Wembley, scene of Cambridge United's two superb victories in 2014. Lovely top with slabs of ice still in the scenic pond, despite the rising temperatures compared to the last week of sub-zero values. True summit could be grass behind bench near trig or more likely grass between another bench and the pond, to the west of the pond. Nice to have a proper hill, after spending ages trying to find the top of Hampstead Heath.pdantic23/01/2016
From car park on A4140, bagging the Kingsbury passive surface block first. Pleasant wooded top with trig pillar and views SW to the stadium.jonglew05/12/2015
Second of a 6-Tump circuit in the area using buses and Tube. Lovely summit in woods with pond practically on the top, and trig point with views towards Wembley Stadium.Mark Jackson19/09/2015
With views over Wembley stadium on Jamie's 16th birthday. Happy birthday Trig Pillocksson!vegibagger01/07/2015
Part of Fryent Country Park which is a 100 hectares of green oasis incl. meadows, woods, hedgerows and ponds (including a pond on the summit of Barn Hill).A fascinating contrast in adjacent rural/urban landscapes. Walked here through the park from Wakemans Hill Avenue. Next down and past Wembley Arena (youthful memories of football obsession)to Wembley Hill.Chris Pearson29/06/2015
On Capital ring trail from South Kenton to Stoke Newington. Very peaceful top with nice pond, woodland and interesting views. Was going to take a pic on timer of me in the hollowed out tree But i couldn't fit in!Dazingdale14/10/2014
Harrow to Wembley Stadium. Top beside the bench overlooking pond is my initial impression (another bench adorns viewpoint nearer trig).Smudge17/11/2013
Very nice hill. Drove up West Hill road, park less than 100m from top. Strolled up on wet night. Ok view of Wembley. Sudbury hill probably better. This nice top though with trig, woods, small lake. High point is a bench seat, now that's sophisticated. Could do with a few of these in Scotland!!nordicstar12/06/2013
From Wembley Park station. Too wet to sit on the bench. Squelchy underfoot. Pleasant spot.destaylor31/01/2013
Doing a recce of the Capital Ring for scouts. A trig pillar into the bargain.Sixtyplus01/06/2008
