Bike ride from home in Oakwood, out via Hatfield and Welwyn, returning via Tewin, Letty Green and Essendon.Mark Jackson18/07/2020
Trig and end of Burnham Close.PGCE27/04/2020
After Southend Hill in Bucks, the long drive across. I am pretty sure It was not the quickest or shortest route! I parked up just past the jct of roads just East of the Green. Walked upto the Trig pillar on the flat green then upto Burnham Close and in and out of the road jct. Flat and rather unexcciting! Continuation, North to Therfield Hill...Dazingdale12/01/2020
Lovely village green setting with a trig point in the middle. Misty morning.jedthehumanoid24/11/2019
Pleasant spot. Took reading below road sign at south corner of green by crossroads.Aye Jimmy08/09/2019
In the words of John Lennon, 'Here come old flat top'.Pete R06/07/2019
Parked mear road junction (which visibly appears to be the highest point) and made an epic seconds-long descent to the trig point, braving inch-high vegetation (mown grass) and treacherous bogs (slightly slippery mud). Dodged the ravenous beasts (weekend country pub lunchers) that are said to roam these parts. The sort of summit that begets legendary mountaineering tales...wheresthepath08/12/2018

Walked around various options on green.rhalstead23/04/2017
visited pillar then walk over to telephone box via road junction which seems higher. The road at this point was the finish point for a King of the mountains leg on a local cycle racecjo09/04/2017
Drive to green then had a walk about to bag the trig and various high points.Dugswell206/03/2017

HP at road junction, S end of village green, approx 50m from trig pillar.jonglew04/08/2016
Herts recompleted on rainy evening on way back from Slovakia. All rather level with 3 HP contenders waypointed: grassy mound by Burnham Green sign (TL 26251 16536); HP of Burnham Cl c/way (TL 26361 16556); S verge opposite Burnham Cl (TL 26364 16532, 1ft above road)RHW01/08/2016
No mud & gravel a month later.ngthack24/07/2016
Parked in a close near tewin village green. Walked up road, then path at back of plume of feathers pub, across a horse paddock, then path nw across field and into an area of very posh housing, then west to road, turning right to follow road to village green trig, then investigated several possible high points. Top seemed to be grass verge by road signs at road junction, 75 m south east of trig. Returned down road to car for lunch, discovered a 126m spot height on 1:50,000 map on road east of top. So drove back up to investigate, spot height seemed lower, hence probably why not on the 1:25,000, although grass in nearby houses seemed level. But still think road junction is the top.pdantic04/07/2016
Train from Kings Cross, 20 min walk from Welwyn North station. Trig point in green but agree higher point is 50 m to south east.trimarc203/07/2016
