Christmas morning visit.cjo25/12/2018
Walked from Observatory Hill. All very easy. And all before the Southern area meeting of the John Muir Societytrimarc217/11/2018
Pleasant autumnal stroll across popular Downs to unobvious HP in grass. Free roadside parking.Denise 16/11/2018
Large grassy common with scattered clumps of scrub/trees, tree lined roads and lots of joggers and dog walkers. All fairly level, high point a grassy mound amongst a group of mounds and hollows on E side.RichardM16/11/2018
Parked by the parade of shops and had a walk across the common.clivevilla10/10/2018
I could have parked 50m away and saved a 250m walk.Chris Peart07/10/2018
Bristol recompleted yet again. The circus came to town for me.ngthack01/10/2018
Coming relatively soon after Observatory Hill. Brenda's retort of 'You're joking. What, another one?' feels somehow appropriate. Must have walked, cycled, driven aliong Stoke Road hundreds of times in the 70s and 80s - but have I stood on the highest point. Well, I have now - or at least till it gets moved somewhere else!milimana28/09/2018
Revisit for better photos and look at some benchmarks.Dugswell221/08/2018
Bristol completed for third time.Ramblingpaul09/08/2018
Well...lots of gentle joggers and dog walkers.. any excuse to go back to Herbert's bakery in St Paul's and buy some of their wonderful dark rye bread and other Eastern European delights... I wonder if Herbert Anchovy had been there since he's a relative local east of Bath on the side of Bathford Hill HuMP.vegibagger02/08/2018
Bristol recompletion.Bramley23/07/2018
Walked across to the high ground from the sliproad by the water tower. Difficult to work out what is natural and what isnít here. Anyway, Bristol summits now complete.Mariana Trench22/07/2018

Nice day for a stroll in the Park. Parked on A417GordonAdshead05/05/2018
Jon's hummock highest by hand level, apart from covered resr by water tower which is 1m higher but artificialRHW11/03/2018
Parked roadside A4176. Had a wander around the common, over to the water tower etc. Highest ground found was at ST 57118 74712.jonglew22/02/2018
Scrubby, cratered area on edge of large expanse of flat amenity grassland. It wonít be surprising if other summit candidates emerge. Parts of Westbury Road appeared by eye to be of a similar height.Herbert Anchovy20/02/2018
Nipped up here in lunch break. walked/run/orienteered across the Downs many times but had i been here before? From parking to the west, over other earthbanks to reach HP. UA recompleted.PeterD12/02/2018
Yet another new Bristol Tump. Completion always gives us an excuse for visiting our little grandson, not that we need excuses.Campbell Singer10/02/2018
A family outing in cold, wet and windy weather. Any more Bristol Tumps yet undiscovered?Barbara Singer10/02/2018
With my Mummy, Daddy, Pop and Grandma. Third time I have completed the Bristol Tumps and I'm still only 20 months. Good job they are on my doorstep.Charlie Singer10/02/2018
